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.
