Fashion Trends: Wide Leg Pants

15 Oct

This brief slide show from the NY Times Style section is spot on with wide leg pants. In fact, just yesterday I took a pair of my own tie-waist, wide leg pants to get shortened. I wore my tallest heels and had the tailor pin them so they just barely, barely, barely skimmed the floor. Rule to live by: the longer the leg in a wide cut silhouette, the leaner you look. Our legs need length to counteract the width of the pants. And the waist must be tiny, tiny. Cinch like your life depended on it.

Here are some other wide legs to seek out.


Drew Grey Twill Wideleg, The Limited, $80. A great neutral that can be paired with a fitted black turtleneck or crisp white button-down, or a silk camisole and dark tailored denim jacket.



Richard Chai Love Trouser, Barney's NY, $298. This is going to be the most comfortable pair of trousers you'll own. Pair this with a bright cashmere v-neck and black boots. Or, try a clean white v-neck T-shirt and an oversized scarf and lots of bangles.



Drippy Wide Leg Pant,, $108. These casual linen pants are a perfect weekend version of the weekday trouser. I won't try to better the current styling shown here. This is good enough for me.



ADAM Ava Wideleg Wool Pants,, $93 (on sale). This rich blue color would look terrific with a dark purple crewneck t-shirt and a menswear vest + chocolate brown boots. Do it. Do it now.
