While we love our jeans, the wide leg pant is the comfy alternative we love for Spring. When we first think of wide length pant, we may think the 70’s, hippies and beach style. However, for the last few seasons, the trend has transitioned for the modern age with pants flattering and fun for every style and occasion.
Take a look at our tips to wearing the wide leg pant and our favourite picks from Femme.
The Perfect Length
When you try on a pair of wide length pant, make sure the hem isn’t dragging on the ground. Ensure the hem is ever so slightly off the ground and you can see your shoes peeking through. Alternatively, you can opt for a more cropped style culottes.
Balance it out by wearing something slim fitting on top
The key to wearing wide leg pants is balance. You can create a flattering silhouette by pairing your wide leg pants with something slim fitting. Avoid adding volume on top, this will ensure you don’t look like your drowning in fabric.
Define your waist with a belt
By pairing your wide leg pant with a belt. You will instantly create an hourglass silhouette. This is great for accentuating your waistline.
While we do love a classic black or navy pant, don’t overlook prints. One key feature of wide leg pants is that they are a comfy care-free wardrobe piece. So you definitely can have fun with prints and colour with this trend, especially in the warmer months of the year.
