As for celebrities, Olivia Wilde is one that we always look to for denim inspiration. She wears jeans a lot – even on Red carpet from time to another. Flared, straight leg, baggy, skinny – you name it and she’s worn it. But for a day out in Los Angeles earlier this week, Wilde wore a style that’s new to her, and it’s one that always comes back: sailor jeans.
Sailor jeans are basically high-waisted jeans that are fitted at the top and have wide legs towards the bottom. They often have details such as patch pockets, double buttons and hems, and they can be dressed up or down very easily. Like skinny jeans, they often have stretch in the denim, so if that’s what you love about skinny jeans but are ready for a change, Wilde’s sailor jeans might inspire you to shop for a pair.
