Wide legs pants can be so versatile – literally they can be worn with everything from sneakers to heels! The key is finding the right pair. I’ll give you some tips that I found useful and show you three ways to style them for maximum versatility!
I stumbled up on mine when I ran into Loft on Sunday to pick up an online order. The WHOLE store was on sale! While there are some great sales online, in store may be even better. The store associate explained to me that they have to get rid of the floor stock to make room for everything they’ve recently received. These caught my eye and so I scooped them up. Although the fitting rooms are closed, they do allow returns.
As soon as I got them home I started playing and came up with three easy outfits to share! The first is what I call casual chic. I will wear this shopping, out to lunch, running errands, you get the idea!
How about an easy breeze elevated casual look? The belt defines the waist and picks up the rattan earrings, straw bag, and espadrille wedges. Perfect for many occasions!
Finally how about a dressier look? Perfect for work (add a jacket or cardi) or a night out. The monochrome look mimics a jumpsuit.
When you are searching for a wide leg pant here are some tips I found helpful:
- search for a pair that doesn’t have pockets – they add bulk to the area
- decide how wide you want to go – if you are taller you can get away with a wider pair – shorter or petite go a little narrower so they don’t overwhelm your frame
- find a fabric that keeps its shape and doesn’t wrinkle
- length is everything – just above the ankle worked best for me – think proportion!
