Another fun way to experiment with the wide-leg pant silhouette is with denim. A good pair of jeans is a core fall wardrobe staple and can be dressed up or down with tops, shoes, and accessories. So open your eyes to wide-leg jeans with ankle-length or floor-grazing lengths, solid or distressed washes, and flared or bootcut legs.
