its still a relatively new trend , esp in denim , honestly I like that it hasnt gone mass market yet, the way it has with bootcuts , then skinnies but I have a feeling it will eventually go that route lol, people first look at something new with contempt , warm up to it and then wear it like nobodys business , I have seen this time and time again. Case and point are skinny jeans , 80% of girls DO look horrible in them but ,they could really give a **** , its just about the fashion and looking different .

actually---in europe and nyc stovepipe jeans are big, because they look good on most the young woman. most women aren't THAT curvy, and in euro-types, the average size is 4-6, around 5.6.

the looking horrible is just a matter of opinion.

I hate the way they look on Rihanna. Sorry, I know a lot of people like her style, but I just am not digging it.

But I will give credit to Rihanna she at least is experiment albeit in a weird way but at least she is one celeb who doesnt wear jbrands habitually , most celebs now wear either those love stories or jbrand 912s lol , like all the damn time. 2 days one of my friends was wearing those miss60 corseted jeans , it looked good and the next the day she wore some high waisted flares , she looked fab , she told me , she loves the high waist because , it feels sophisticated and smart and she said she was influenced by the the celebs wearing them.

I am th9inking about it since it can create an edgy architectural shape. on the other hand, imho, i have good legs (my best asset). the wide leg shape steal away my chance to show off my legs.

i know wideleg pants can make them look longer, but slimmer cuts show off toned thighs more effectively.

its short of like the trapeze dress--cool shape, but a lil too modest.

thats subjective^^
I have great legs , but pure wide legs are more about silhouette and creating one for you ,esp if you have flaws. One of my friends is 5'10 has great legs but feels she looks like a spider in tight fit jeans and finds the higher waist wide leg , classy and elegant , so its subjective , what ever you want super sexy or classy and elegant.

What about jeans with a higher rise that are still fitted through the thigh? It seems like they'd accentuate your legs even more!
