Hello Wide-Leg Trousers with your classic tailored cut, forgiving drapes, and long leg silhouette ready for the runway – we have missed you so!
Finally the wide-leg trouser trend is back from 70’s hibernation. The oversized shape can seem a wee bit daunting to style at first, but we promise this is a trend that is oh so flattering for every shape, and is in full force to take over the skinny jean and tiny tights.
This trouser trend can literally be worn in anyway you want to work it, to the office with a shirt, to the beach with a crop top and sandals, paired with a silky cami for a afternoon drink – the opportunities are endless, just like your classic pair of jeans.
Below are some key styling tips to remember when reaching for the Wide Leg.
BALANCE: Its important to balance the proportions of this oversize trouser. Opt for a tight fitting top or cami that shows off your collarbones or arms. If you are smaller around the waist show this off with a high waist trouser option.
TUCK IT IN: If you do want to wear a looser fitting shirt – tuck it in! There is nothing easier and chicer to style. This way you are reducing excess bulk and creating an elegant silhouette. With a knit or long sleeve try tucking in just the front, which is still show off those long leggies!
KEEP IT NEUTRAL: Unlike the 70s this wide-leg style is best in neutrals! Try black, white, navy and blush. This keeps the look elegant and classic, and so much more wearable!
