Every Fashion Expert Is Buying a Pair of These Non–Skinny Jeans

I want to start this by saying that just because there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that no one is really wearing skinny jeans right now, that doesn’t mean you have to get rid of them entirely. Fashion is fickle but it loves nostalgia and resurrecting trends, so it’s very likely that at some point in the not-too-distant future, drainpipes will once again be à la mode.

For now, though, the hottest silhouette around is the barrel-leg jean. Now, what does that actually mean? We first had these style of jeans on our radar way back in 2017 when Whistles launched its version and we saw it taking off. The Whistles signature barrel-leg jeans have a high-rise waist, loose-fitting legs and are cropped just above the ankle. I consider them akin to mom jeans but smarter. With jean trends and denim, in general, a huge trend for 2023, it’s no surprise that the style is a consistent best-seller.
