Hi, guys! Now it's time to talk about wide-leg pants, are they in style this 2018, how should you wear them and with what. I will try my best to show you only the best styling tricks to follow this year, stay tuned and see what's trending right now!
For those of you who might be, shall we say, a bit over the super-skinny jeans trend that’s dominated the pants marketplace for the past decade or so, we have some delightful news! This spring, super wide-leg pants rule supreme; otherwise known as palazzos, the ultra-voluminous pantaloons are swishing and swooshing their way into magazine pages and onto street style blogs everywhere. Even better news: they’re pretty much flattering on everyone. They’re comfortable, they’re fun to wear, and they highlight and minimize the female form in pretty much all the right places. Whether a sleek pair in solid black or a wildly playful pair in a vivid print–it’s hard to go wrong with these guys.
Today, we’re discussing one of our favorite former-trends-made-modern: wide-leg pants! When we first think of wide-leg pants, the ’70s, hippies and beachy style come to mind, but for the past few seasons, this flattering and fun trend has made a major comeback for everyday, an evening out and even workwear fashion. Even so, it can be intimidating to opt for a pant with extra fabric and size. After all, who wants to make their legs look wider? However, wide-leg pants actually lengthen legs and accentuate the waistline. But, there are a few fashion rules you must follow in order to rock this trend right. Here, I'm giving you top tips and tricks, as well as stylish options to add to your wardrobe. Take on the season in style with these wide-leg pants!
-Purchase a pair in a neutral color like grey, black, white, cream, camel, olive or navy.
We realize that the wide-leg pant trend can be a bit intimidating. If you’re feeling the need to tread lightly, go for a neutral shade like these in olive, black and navy. We especially love the navy option for a more professional look.
-Consider a pair of wide-leg jeans.
A quality pair of wide-leg jeans is a go-to style for us. Not only are they comfortable, they’re also flattering and fashion-forward. We love this dark wash pair for work or a more elegant affair while the light-wash pair is on-trend and ideal for casual summer soirees.
-Tuck in your top.
It is essential to tuck in your top or find a way to accentuate your waistline when wearing wide-leg pants. Simply said, it’s all about balance. You must create a flattering silhouette while making sure you’re not drowning in fabric, and a tucked-in top, tight or loose, will do just that. Both of these pairs feature a tie-front detail, which further accentuates your waist while making a tucked in top look fabulous.
-Consider one color head to toe.
An easy way to make wide-leg pants look polished and elegant is by opting for a monochromatic look. Here, we went with black and chose a drapey blouse, work-appropriate pants, a unique belt and gorgeous go-to pumps for the ultimate monochromatic look.
-Buy a cropped style, and try a jumpsuit!
We’re sure you’ve seen this trend everywhere. Cropped jeans, pants and jumpsuits are all the rage this season and although this trend may feel intimidating, it is so flattering and beyond comfortable. Here is a sweet and simple tie-front denim option that can be worn to a number of events and one summer-appropriate jumpsuit that we suggest donning for any upcoming celebration, like a graduation party or backyard BBQ.
-White is a pair of wide-leg pants' best friend.
A solid pair of white palazzos, especially when paired with a white blouse or otherwise neutral shade, gives off an immediate air of, "I just look like I"m headed to a fabulous beach party, don't I?"
-You can't go wrong with a wide-leg pantsuit in a statement color.
All you need is to add fabulous accessories with a contrasting white blouse.
-Printed Wide Le Pants
Prints, prints, prints! One central feature of all palazzo pants is that they're fun-loving, care-free wardrobe pieces. You simply can't look or act overly serious in a palazzo pant; so why not have even more fun with it and buy a pair in a vivid print?
