wide leg/trouser jeans

I could not be more thrilled about the return of the wide leg jean.  Skinny jeans are cool and all, but they're not exactly figure flattering for me, so I have been thinking non stop about the new jeans I want to buy.  My favorite jeans are Seven high-waisted trouser style and I bought them at least 5 years ago.  And they have now ripped twice. As much as it pains me, I think it's time to give them up.  Here are a few new images of high-waisted, wide leg jeans for inspiration:

These high-waisted jeans from Madewell are amazing.  I know the top pair isn't wide leg, but a high-waisted skinny also appeals to me and my long torso-ed body. Nobody wants to see my granny panties!

And possibly the ultimate in high waisted flares comes from none other than EmersonMade:



The website says these jeans don't stretch, which makes them both very enticing and very intimidating!  I wish I could try them on somewhere, but unfortunately you can only order them online.  Aren't they great though?  And what about that belt? Ah, love.
