Inspired by menswear and all things 70s, there has been a new silhouette emerging during the recent catwalk collections, the wide leg pant. This doesn't mean the straight or skinny leg shapes are no longer relevant; it just gives you another wardrobe option. It easily translates to work wear and with any trend, looks great in denim. How to make the wide leg pant work for you?
Wide leg pants can be flattering to most body shapes as they can hide any difference in proportion between the hips and lower legs; but ensure they skim not cling to your hips and thighs to create a narrow shape.
Look for a high waisted style to visually elongate your legs.
Avoid styles with details that add extra bulk to your frame like side pockets or front pleats.
Style your wide leg jeans with a belt to visually draw attention up and elongating your legs.
Wide leg jeans look are best worn with shoes that visually add height, think wedges, heels or flat shoes with a pointed toe.
As always, balance will be key.
