I’ve never met a pair of wide leg pants I didn’t like haha! But I also know that so many of my personal styling clients are nervous to try them.
If you’ve never worn them before, it can be a bit of a change from the good old skinny jeans look that we are all so used to know.
But what I LOVE about a wide leg pant, is the proportion that it plays with. It creates the illusion of a long leg, and a slim waist on every body – no matter what your shape, size or height! That’s why they are one of the 21 key garments in my latest eBook – How to Create a Spring/Summer Capsule Wardrobe (you can grab a copy here).
My key styling tips with a wide leg pants are as follows;
- ALWAYS tuck your top into them – at least the front. The proportions work best this way. By wearing a top out, it can make you look shorter in the leg.
- Look for pants that are designed with a FLAT FRONT and an ELASTIC BACK. That way they will sit beautifully over your waist and tummy, but you will also have some flexibility in the fit – the pants will fit you YOUR body, rather than having to fit into them
And to give you some more styling ideas on how to rock a wide leg pant, here’s my latest 1 item 4 ways video… and remember, height has nothing to do with how a wide leg pant looks, its all about the proportions of the entire outfit.
Now have I convinced you that wide leg pants deserve a place in your wardrobe? Good!
