5 Tips for Styling Wide-Leg Pants
Have you ever found a wardrobe staple so good you never want to take it off? For me, it’s wide-leg pants. Besides being comfortable, wide-leg pants are a versatile and on-trend fashion statement women of any age can wear. This style is so easy to dress up with heels for a night out or down with sneakers for weekend errands! If you’re looking beyond your leggings and denim for a style change, you have to try the wide-leg pant. Below I’m sharing five style tips on how to wear wide-leg pants effortlessly.
Are you looking for more trends this spring? Check out my recent post here, styling a bright orange dress for the season.
1.) Tuck in your shirt
This small effort will elongate and accentuate your waist in the best way! Wide-leg pants are typically high-waisted, so go for a full or half tuck to bring out the details when in doubt.
2.) Balance the proportions with a slim-fitted top and a cropped jacket
As you can see, I’m following this style tip in most looks below because wide-leg pants look so much better with a slim-fitted top and jacket. Not sure which jacket to wear? When in doubt, go with denim!
3.) Heels will dress them up
If you’re heading somewhere a bit fancier, pair your wide-leg pants with your favorite heels to dress them up! One of my favorite things about wide-leg pants is that they are versatile and will take you flawlessly to any occasion.
4.) Sneakers should be on the chunky side
Since wide-leg pants are a bit flowier and on the longer side, wear a platform sneaker or something slightly chunkier than your average shoe. This will elongate your legs and make you look thinner; it will also allow your sneakers to be seen!
5.) Wear cropped pants with open-toe shoes
Since wide-leg pants can be a bit longer, grab a pair of cropped wide-leg pants to wear with open-toe shoes like sandals in the spring and summer!
