Two years ago I purchased a pair of high-waist wide-legged Joe's trouser jeans. When I tried them on I immediately felt as though I was channeling my mom in the 70's, sans the big glasses and Afro she wore of course. So I bought and loved them. They became a staple in my closet for those days when I wanted to wear jeans but still maintain a polished image.
Two years later my wide-legged trousers still remain a staple in my closet. They have become a great denim investment. And of course I knew they would work perfectly with today's 70's inspired trend. So much so that I wore them during fashion week for a full day of running around to events.
