Here are five simple steps to nailing the wide leg pant:
Step 1: Finding the right pair
Think about what kind of pants you want — an everyday basic neutral for work or a statement pair for the evenings. Try on a few fits to figure out what style suits you best and when you find a flattering silhouette, invest in getting the length tailored according to your shoes. PS: If wide legs are too big a jump from your skinny jeans, start in between with flare pants.
Step 2: Thinking about the top
Once the pants are decided, it’s time to find the right separate to pair it with. For work, it’s best to keep it simple with a button down shirt or blouse. For weekends and after hours, have fun with your #ootd — a cute crop top, a pop blazer or a conversation tee or sweater, whatever you are in the mood for.
Step 3: Tucking it in
A great look is all about the balance and the right proportions, and because of all the volume that wide leg pants bring along, it’s even more important to think about the proportion. Tucking your shirt in — whether full, the trendy half tuck or strategic side tuck — is a big trick to nail the look. Pairing it with a bodysuit is also a good option if you like a sleek, fitted top.
Step 4: Slipping on some heels
Let’s face it: very, very women can pull of wide leg pants with flat shoes. The best thing about wide leg pants is that you can wear the highest of heels secretly (just make sure your hem hits below the heel).
Step 5: Accessorizing like an it girl
A cute shoulder bag, a cape draped casually over your shoulders, a lariat or a Y-necklace to visually elongate the torso, a skinny belt to flaunt your waist, a jacket to layer your look cleverly, are just some tricks and tips to finish the look.
