Wide leg jeans are back in a big way with celebs like Billie Eilish through to Margot Robbie rocking the classic 90s look. We couldn’t be happier about it tbh—wide leg jeans are comfy, flattering, and easy to dress up or down, plus they look damn good with a chunky knit which is perfect for this time of year. We’ve scoured the internet to find you the best wide leg jeans for 2021 so you can look like a modern Rachel, Monica or Phoebe and live your best 90s life.
Neuw | Sade Baggy Jeans
Made from organic cotton and available in four shades, these jeans are the ultimate 90s throwback. Australian/Swedish brand Neuw is all about music culture, so if the Spice Girls wore denim, it probably would have looked like these. They also feature the signature Neuw fob ring on the belt loop—a trademark of all Neuw jeans as a homage to the founder’s grandfather. How wholesome is that?

Wear them with sneakers and a tee all day, then swap to heels and a leather jacket for night.
Nobody Denim | Milla Jean Shell
If you love a cropped jean, then these may be the pair you’ve been searching for. Designed and made in Melbourne, the Milla Jeans are one of the best high waisted wide leg jeans around. They’re perfect with a chunky knit or a simple tank and will take you through all four seasons.

Nobody Denim Petite | Petite Skylar Jeans
One of the biggest struggles of jeans shopping when you’re vertically challenged is the length. You can get away with rolling up skinny jeans, but wide legs aren’t so simple—anyone else get their mum to take up their jeans for them? Thankfully Nobody Denim has developed a petite range for those of us on the smaller side of life. The Skylar jeans are one of the best wide leg jeans for petites—no hemming required.

Ok Billie Eilish fans, these jeans are for you. Super wide leg with a grungy 90s fit, these are some of the best wide leg jeans for that classic Billie oversized look.
