For almost two decades skinny jeans were the denim look du jour, with celebrities such as Kate Moss and Sienna Miller giving us plenty of drain-pipe inspiration via a steady stream of lust-worthy looks. Well, if the last year is anything to go by, A-listers are having a change of heart and have well and truly converted to the non-skinny silhouette. Hard-hitting stuff indeed.
From VB’s leg-lengthening flares and Stacey Dooley’s straight legs to Katie Holmes’s wide-leg styles, the shopping world is your oyster when you look outside the skinny jean category. Plus, with high-street and high-end brands alike embracing a new, and wider, variety of denim fits, you know there’ll be a pair to match your budget.
If you’re looking for a smarter pair we would recommend flared jeans, which work perfectly with heeled boots and silken blouses, however, if you’re in the mood for something more low-key, the high-waisted wide-leg style is both statement-making and flattering. And of course, for Princess Di vibes, you can’t go wrong with a trusty ’80s straight leg. So if you’re in need of some denim inspo for 2021, scroll down to see our fave non-skinny celebrity jean outfits, plus shop our denim edit.
