6 ways to wear wide leg pants

Breathe a sigh of relief, ladies - skinnies are out, wide leg cuts are in! It’s time to rejoice and embrace in a pant style that is not only flattering on most body shapes - it creates the illusion of longer legs too. To add to this, the wide leg pant can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion or to suit your mood… What’s not to love?! Here, we celebrate the return of the classic wide leg cut pant, by bringing you our favourite styles and tips on how to create six of-the-moment looks.

Build a timeless look

When it comes to investment pieces that will serve you season after season, look no further than a well-cut pair of black wide leg pants. It acts as the perfect foundational piece for any polished look because of its timeless appeal. Style your wide leg pants with a white shirt with an interesting neckline and a classic tweed blazer with gold buttons for added polish. Accessorise with a sleek clutch and pointy toe heels for an outfit that will have you making an entrance wherever you go.

Play with proportions

For those who are height challenged, a pair of cropped wide leg pants help to give the illusion of longer legs. Balance the proportion of a wide leg pant with a cropped jacket so as not to overwhelm a petite frame. Add a stylish hat, accessories and flats in complementary tones for a cool city look.

Pair with streetwear

Give a classic white shirt and dressy wide leg pant ensemble a cool and unexpected edge by adding streetwear pieces into the mix. Create a slightly undone look with a half shirt tuck and leave shirt cuffs unbuttoned, then layer with a cropped puffer vest and worn-in cap. Complete the look with a pair of ‘dad sneakers’ and a sling bag. For extra style points, opt for a wide leg pant in a bold colour.

Create a tonal ensemble

A monochrome outfit always looks sleek and effortlessly stylish, not to mention simplifies the process of pulling an outfit together when you’re short on time. When creating a monochromatic look with your wide leg cut pants, the key is to incorporate pieces that bring in texture or a hint of detail to add interest to your look. For an edgy night look, complement your wide leg pants with a cropped leather jacket, midriff or fitted top and strappy statement heels. For day, swap your fitted top for a fitted tee and slip-on shoes.

Combine with activewear

Strike a balance between work and play by pairing your wide leg cut pants with a crop top. The idea is to show just a hint of skin so this look works best with wide leg cut pants with a high waist. For extra coverage, throw on a sharp blazer, or better yet, invest in a wide leg pant suit for a fashion-forward ensemble that says you mean business.

Elevate a t-shirt

A wide leg cut pant is the perfect way to dress up a t-shirt when you want to go casual but still look like you put in the effort. Choose an off-white or light beige coloured pant for a fresh, chic look all year round. For extra warmth layer with a cosy knit or cardigan, then throw on some sneakers, grab a monogrammed, oversized tote and you’re ready for a day of brunch and shopping.
