Forget Skinny Jeans–Here's How to Style the Season's Hottest Trend
While you likely used to groan whenever your mom would talk about her questionable fashion choices back in the 70’s, loose-fitting pants are making a come back like never before. From baggy trousers to business casuals, wide-leg pants ruled fashion bloggers’ wardrobes in 2018, putting the final nail in the skinny jeans coffin. They are comfortable, leg-elongating, and oh so stylish. But, you’re going to have to think about how you wear these pants so you don’t hear your mom saying “I dressed like that when I went to Woodstock!” Keep reading for some basic tips to rock this trend right!
Start with neutral colors
With extra fabric and size, wide-leg pants might be intimidating in the beginning. Neutral colors like black, cream, navy, or olive match everything and look good on all skin tones.
Styled with a T-shirt
You don’t need more than one great-fitting tee to make an outfit with wide-leg pants look street style ready. Stripes, denim, cropped, multicolored—you can play with an endless array of patterns and styles and still end up with a sporty, casual, and polished look if you pair your pants with a simple tee.
Styled with a blouse
Style wide-leg pants with a blouse or a blazer and you will have perhaps the most comfortable business casual look out there. A classic button-down shirt will make you look elegant and powerful. Tuck in only the front of your blouse or tie it in a knot if your office is okay with a more casual style.
Styled with a cropped jacket or cropped top
A cropped top makes wide-leg pants even more waist defining. Better yet, no matter what season it is, you now have a way to flaunt your midriff! Go for a matching set or mix and match–whatever floats your boat!
Styled with heels
Pop on a pair of heels or heeled booties and make your legs even more elongated. Whether block-heeled mules or pumps, heels will give you the long legs you’ve always dreamed about and add a little formality to your look if that’s what the occasion calls for.
