A big trend this year is a swing back to wide legs and flare leg pants. I have to say I’m totally in support of this. Flare legs work better with my curvy shape so selfishly I like this. Wide legs are WAY more comfortable than peeling off those skinny pants that leave indentations on you, but they can be tricky to wear. Here are a few tips on wearing the wide leg trend.
The biggest thing to think of is proportion. Wide legged pants can look good with a loose flowy top or a slim fitted one the point is to get the right proportion for you. Because I am short and curvy a slim top fits best. If you are more on the athletic build then a loose flowy top like the mark. light and layered top works well. If you are pear shaped a cropped top loose or fitted would flatter. Either of these styles can be worked on any body type the items just need to be proportioned to you. In this look I went with a light spring sweater in a metallic grey from Express. I tucked it in to keep it slim.
I really like these mark. Navy Gazing Pants not only for the comfortable, lightweight material but also the deep navy shade and pockets! These ones are the perfect pants for spring. Functionally and fashion wise. The have a side zip and a banded waist band. The lightweight material is like a gauze making them really functional as the weather warms up.
Going back to proportions, the silhouette of wide leg pants really can carry bigger accessories, like a large cuff bracelet, statement necklace and oversized bag. These are all “larger” pieces but all worn together they work. I’m wearing my spring fav the mark. Grows On You Bracelet with and old mark. necklace but you can get the same look with the mark. Free and Clear necklace. My bag is the mark. Carry All Handbag (last seen here and here).
Wearing wide legs is not as intimidating as you might think if you get the proportions right. I think they’re a must have to add this spring. Plus they’re really really REALLY comfy. Spring can be chilly so a pair of pants in an updated silhouette makes sense. As the weather warms up I’ll ditch the spring sweater and leopard flats for an open lace top and sandals.
