The Wide Leg Pant


Photos by AFM Photography

Pants: Zara
Top: H&M
Shoes: Steve Madden
Glasses: Aldo
Bag: Michael Kors

“The wider the better!” is this season’s motto in the fashion world. We’ve transitioned from skinny jeans and slim fit pants, to wide leg pants, bell bottom jeans, and harem pants. This season it’s kind of like, “the wider your pants are, the cooler you are.” Women everywhere have been trading in the slim fit pants and filling their closets with these style pants. They’re more comfortable and look super chic, even when the wind starts blowing the material in a hundred different directions. 

I styled these with one of my favorite printed crop tops from H&M. I really loved the mix of colors between the deep orange of the pants, and the light tones in the top. I suggest wearing heels if your pants are a bit long, that way they don’t drag on the ground. Being taller, I never usually have an issue with pants being too long (it’s usually the opposite), but these just seemed to fall way past my feet. I added the Steve Madden platform heels to lift the hem of the pants a bit. 

When it comes to accessories, I always like to keep it light, with a few statement pieces. I added these beige round-frame sunglasses from Aldo to give the look a more 70’s feel. I also threw on some gold rings I’ve picked up from assorted different places the past few years.  I decided to stay away from a necklace, as the pattern in the top was a bit busy and I didn’t want to take away from the pants. Lastly, I completed the outfit with this black Selma bag from Michael Kors. 

     What do you think of the wide-leg pant?

  12. That pant! Terrific volume, fantastic movement & such a rich rust tone. I love them. Complimented by a large bird print with a box pleat in the back? You give visual interest regardless of coming or going. Great styling job.

  16. I have experienced most of mobile platforms. IOS and BBOS are best in terms of efficiency and security. BB is best in productivity. IOS is good too. Both have no problem of any bloatware. Windows is next good in terms of efficiency, but iphones are next to perfect for business and personal use to get more news feeds about iPhones and Apple's new released stay connect with CydiaNerd.
