Carrot-Leg Jeans Are the Latest Denim Trend to Add Your Closet
We aren’t trying to peel you away from your skinny jeans or tell you to stop wearing kick-flares, we promise. But, if you’re hoping to welcome a different denim style into your wardrobe this spring, you might want to consider a style we’re calling the carrot leg. Despite its trendy and new-sounding name, this cut is actually a throwback to the 1980s. It’s high-waisted, and sometimes includes pleats, but what sets the design apart is how it goes from loose up top to tight around the bottom of the leg. Chanel put a pair of carrot-leg jeans on its Spring 2020 runway, and seeing them styled with a striped shirt, jacket, and sandals quickly proved that these pants were just as versatile as our current favorites.
However, should you need just a little more proof that these babies belong in your rotation, we’ve found a few more outfit ideas worth viewing. Brands such as Shein, Michael Kors, and Ulla Johnson all make a mean carrot-leg jean, so you’ll have plenty of options once you’re ready to shop.
They Look Great With a Simple T-Shirt
Balance out the high-waisted shape by opting for a cropped version or simply tuck in your shirt. Then, you can finish your look with a crisp pair of white sneakers.
