Top 3 '70s-Inspired Trouser Jeans for Spring

Tuesday, January 18, 2011 • Permalink • 

Just in time for the dreariest, dullest days of winter, the Spring fashion news has started rolling in. If the sentiments from the February issues are any indication, the must-have wardrobe item for Spring will be a pair of '70s-inspired trouser jeans.

The higher waist, the wider leg -- it's a silhouette that is insanely flattering and super easy to wear. Ok, I do have a long-standing affection for '70s-inspired fashion, but it's not just my bias talking when it comes to this season's nostalgic take on the trouser jean. It really is a trend that is kind to the female form.

In the name of keeping Stiletto Jungle readers on top of the best options for following the newest trends, I've scoured the glossies and the racks to find the 3 best options when it comes to '70s-inspired trouser jeans. These jeans will fit, flatter and keep you on top of one of the most fun trends of the season.

I snagged a pair of these 7 For All Mankind Georgia Trouser Jeans on sale just before they went on production moratorium a couple years ago, and I still adore them. The interesting, wide-set front pocket design is ideal for adding the illusion of subtle curves to boyish figures.

The Genetic Denim Adriane Bellbottom Jean has popped up in three different glossies this month -- the mark of both a great PR team, and a praise-worthy denim design.

The new High Rise Pintuck Trouser Jeans from Gap have also been the recipient of some good press, both for the chic '70s bellbottom style and the super affordable price.
