I'm not too knowledgeable in decades and what was popular then but I do know that wide legs were the jazz in the 70s. (Just kidding. I didn't know that. I had to confirm it with my MIL.) I definitely felt as though I went back in time in this quaint little town my husb grew up in and my wide leg jeans. Actually, it always feels like I've gone back in time whenever I'm here....every time.
