Wide leg pants are a trend that has been on the rise for some time now and you actually can’t ignore the impact it has been making. It is undoubtedly a key buy!
Relaxed silhouettes, long hemlines, high waist, these are the details that caught my eye on these pants. And I am pairing them with everything from crop tops to outerwear and bold accessories.
From chic suits with extra-wide trousers to retro-inspired denim, designers have been favoring the wide fit for spring, both slung low at the hips for a relaxed look and high-waisted and tailored for a more formal option.
Wide leg pants work for every day, an evening out, and even workwear. I know it can be intimidating to opt for a pant with extra fabric and size. But hear me out, these pants actually lengthen legs and accentuate the waistline, creating an incredibly flattering silhouette on every body-type.
If you’re looking for inspiration for how to style them, below see how I’ve worn wide-leg pants in the past and shop my edit of pieces to test-drive this staple for yourself!
Purchase a neutral pair and consider a head to toe colour scheme
An easy way to make wide-leg pants look polished and elegant is by opting for a monochromatic look or slight variations of the same color.
Maybe it’s the style’s subtle retro kick, but the denim version of this silhouette just feels really cool. Bonus points: platform boots. They’re trending, they’re comfortable, they give you extra centimeters.
Tuck in your top
It is essential to tuck in your top or find a way to accentuate your waistline when wearing wide-leg pants. It’s all about balance. The pair I came up with from my Amazon the Drop line (part 2 is coming, check all the details on my Instagram!), for example, features a belt detail, which further cinch your waist while making a tucked-in top look fabulous.
