How To Wear Wide-Leg Pants

by krismkoch

After season after season of skinnies, pant hems are getting wider and wider. Yep, wide-leg pants are back for spring and will be huge for fall. I, for one, love a good pair of wide-leg pants.  The more forgiving style is perfect for work with a tucked-in blouse, or a fitted sweater. I also love to dress down a pair of wide leg pants with a t-shirt and sneakers. Personally, I’m a fan of playing with proportions, and that’s the trick to wear wide-leg pants without being swallowed up.

Wide-leg pants can be tricky to pull off no doubt. You need to balance the volume on bottom. To wear wide leg pants, you need to pair them with a fitted or tucked-in top. If you’re going to go oversized on top and bottom, you need your top to hit at the right spot and still have a narrow enough fit to allow some of your shape to come through. When it comes to footwear, stick to heels or platforms or wedges, especially if you’re petite — you’ll need the added height to keep the wide leg from swallowing you up. If you’re on the taller side or have a great tailor, I love contrasting a more formal feel of a wide-leg pant with sneakers. Just make sure the pant hems aren’t dragging on the ground.

The real key for how to wear wide-leg pants though is to make sure to get the right fit. You don’t want the pockets don’t stick out and bunch. You want them to fit just right — not too tight so that the sides are bunching and popping but not too loose either. I highly recommend employing a tailor to get them just right.

Here are some of my favorite ways to wear wide leg pants.

I just love wide-leg pants. They are so much more comfortable to wear, and now, fashionable too. Thanks for sharing.
