Style your wide-leg pants like a pro


There was a time when wide-leg pants and jeans disappeared from the fashion scene and skinny and fitted was what everyone was wearing. If you are observant, you would have noticed that wide-legged pants, trousers and jeans have made their way back into the fashion scene. So, if you’re looking to get some inspiration on why you need to get some wide-leg pants and how to style them, you are in the right place.

5 Ways To Style Wide Leg Pants

Accentuate your waist
Go for high waist pants– high-waisted pants tend to make your hips fuller hence drawing attention to your hips.

Avoid low-waisted wide leg pants at all costs because they highlight your stomach area.

Choose pants that start to flare right at your hips and go straight downwards– they flatter your legs.

Avoid pocket details along the waist in order to let your hips stand out. But if you love details, you can get some buttons or zip details.

Rock fitted tops
Pairing your wide leg pants well is the secret to rocking the look. A fitted top will show off your waist and strike a balance between the wide bulk of the bottoms and the fitted top. In essence, avoid wearing baggy tops but if you have to, always tuck it in inappropriately. If you love a dramatic flair, play around with the shoulder and sleeve details with off-shoulders, bell-sleeved tops and bralettes.


Longer is Better
The best thing about wide-leg pants is that they elongate your frame so it is better to go for long pants especially if you are tall or curvy. An exception will go to petite ladies with shorter frames. Because longer wide-leg pants can drown their frames, they can instead opt for culottes or wide-leg pants with a slimmer flare.

Try monochrome
Since wide legs are such bold fashion pieces, you can tone it down by wearing a monochromatic ensemble. And if you want to go bold, consider a one-color look or color blocking. Most importantly, experiment and be creative with how you wear your wide legs. You can go floral, bold or even layer up for that instant edge.

Heels It
Depending on your ease of walking, wear heels of preferred height but the longer the heels, the better your look.

Above all, remember to accessorize like a pro. Carry that cute chic clutch bag and wear that thin necklace you’ve been saving. To look your best, up your makeup game and groom perfectly to ensure that your look is complete.
