How To Style Wide Leg Pants

Back in Fashion 

It’s no secret that wide leg pants have been revived and are leading up to be THE look of 2023. Vogue is calling them ‘the one thing worth falling for’ and we’re riding that same train of thought. But what is all the fuss about? Let us unravel the illusionary magic of wide leg pants!

Before racing to grab a pair of our palazzo or wide leg crop pants, you need to know the key to styling them. When it comes to pulling off that sweeping hem & maintaining a feminine look, you’ll need to balance your proportions. Pair your slice of the 70’s with a fitted top that hugs and flatters your figure. The goal is to highlight your frame, not hide it beneath volumes of merino wool!

And here’s where the magic happens. Your body will take on an A-shape and as the eye is drawn down to that gorgeous wide hemline, your figure will appear both slimmer & taller. Follow this secret of proportions and you’ll be ready for any sidewalk runway. 

Casual Look 

“It’s impossible to achieve that breezy & casual look with wide leg pants”. Palazzo pants at the ready, ladies, let’s bust this myth! 

For the just–threw–this–stylish–ensemble–together look, wear your wide leg pants with a fitted top that feels like a hug. Try our Shelly top for a scoop of elegance or pair your palazzo pants with our sleeveless Sadie top

But don’t walk out the front door just yet, make sure you tuck that top in to restore your waistline! If you want to pull off a really casual feel, try only tucking in the front section of your top. Whatever your choice, don’t overlayer and keep things simple. As said perfectly by Coco Chanel: ‘Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance’. 

Smart Casual Look 

Is there anything more confusing than the concept of ‘smart casual’? But don’t fret, because wide leg pants are the saviour to all our ‘smart casual’ occasions. The higher waist naturally lifts the casual look but without exuding the corporate vibes of straight leg pants. 

For a showstopper outfit, pair your wide leg pants with our cowl neck top, or turn heads by accessorising our wide boat neck Pia top. Make 2023 your most stylish year yet by making wide leg pants the centrepiece of your wardrobe.
