The easiest way to look chic on a cold day is to wear a coat over your outfit. Adding a great coat can really elevate any basic look you wear under them. You can wear these coats with a wide-leg pants outfit for that sophisticated and classy finishing touch.

Leather is classic and timeless, so you can always be sure that when you get a leather piece you’ll have it with you for years to come. Leather jackets come in different styles and lengths. but whichever you go for, you can be sure the jacket will add a touch of edginess and sophistication.

A blazer always adds a touch of sophistication to any kind of look, whether you have on a casual or a dressed up outfit. The best thing about them is that regardless of your age or body size, there’s a blazer out there for you.
Kim (above) styled her plaid blazer over a black top with a pair of wide-leg jeans. With the blazer, the jeans look will already feel classier. You can go the extra mile and style it with some heels instead of going for sneakers which are common while wearing jeans.
With a white button down
One of the most chic yet simple ways to wear your wide leg jeans is to throw on your white button-down shirt.
This outfit would work with even the most basic button-down shirt, but of course you can look for some details in the shirt to elevate the look.
Bell sleeves are very trendy, especially during summer months. The dramatic sleeves make you turn heads for sure. While in most cases it makes sense to balance the wide sleeves with some skinny pants, you don’t have to.
The key is in getting the right fit for both the bell-sleeve top and the wide-leg jeans, since they are both statement pieces. You don’t want your outfit looking tacky.
With a cold-shoulder top
Cold shoulder tops look great when paired with some wide-leg jeans for a casual outfit, especially when tucked in.

With a pullover
Pullover with wide leg jeans can give you a fashion-forward look that is casual but very put-together.
Just like a cardigan, a pullover is ever so warm and cozy. Pullovers come in designs that don’t just give you a preppy look, but offer so many other options too. They are very stylish, when worn with the right pieces.
Cyndi (above) styled her chunky, oversized pullover with a pair of wide-leg jeans and finished the look off with some mules. The mules and her classy bag make the look chic. It’s a great idea to tuck in just the front part of your pullover and leave the back out so that it doesn’t bulge awkwardly in case the pullover is oversized or chunky.
With a blouse
A blouse always makes an outfit look smart. They can be worn either printed or plain, depending on what you want your outfit to look like. They also look great when tucked into some wide-leg pants.
Bridget (above) wore a pair of cropped wide-leg jeans with a printed blouse, and a pair of sandals that match the color scheme of the top. For this, you can go for the ordinary length of wide-leg pants and not necessarily a cropped pair.
With a utility jacket
Utility jackets are very stylish. Wide-leg jeans in particular will give you a more interesting look when worn with this kind of jacket style.

With a duster
Dusters offer versatility and look great when styled alongside wide-leg jeans.
A duster always completes a look so wel, as it just ties everything together even if you’re in jeans and make it chicer. A duster can be floor-length, or could go just up to the knee. Regardless the length, a duster will always look flattering.
