When you think of wide legged pants, you automatically imagine it to look like those 70s bell bottoms. Wide leg pants don’t just mean flared pants, they suit equally well as a straight cut or even a boot cut one. Try a couple of pants and see what suits your body before you invest in them.

This one’s a no brainer. It’s best to avoid pairing your wide legged pants with a baggy top. Balancing the proportions is the first step to a well put together look. Wear a well fitted top with your pants and add a layer (a jacket or a blazer maybe?) to extend the silhouette pattern!

When you think wide legged pants, think high waist. High waist styles flatter every body type and most importantly, add height to your look. If you have a slim waist and want to highlight it, there’s no better way to do it! Team it up with a tucked in top, and you’re ready to steal the show!

There’s no harm in going monochrome. You can team up your pants with a blazer in the same colour and transform a basic pair of pants into a classy pantsuit. If that seems like a little too risky for you to do, try experimenting with two different shades of the same colour. After all colour blocking is never going out of style, right?
