I’m on the hunt for wide-legged jeans. I like the elegant, slouchy look made famous by Katharine Hepburn in the 1930s, and it seems just the thing for summer, paired with a white T-shirt and a couple of strands of pearls.



As for the skinny jeans that have held all our wardrobes in vice-like grip for years: it was fun, now it’s done. Or so I think. Vogue and the occasional fashion blogger agree with me — hello, Roslyn Costanzo at Style Forage!

But the retailers are thwarting me at every turn. Where-oh-where are women finding those nice wide-legged denims I see on Vancouver streets now and then?

I suppose I could just accost the strangers wearing them and demand their shopping secrets?

Hmmm… on second thought, there might be some problems with that strategy.

If you find some secreted away somewhere, please let me know.
