wide leg pants are timeless classics in my book. i’ve already featured two different pairs of wide leg pants on the blog this spring alone: a casual and semi-formal pair. every year since the beginning of the inception of this blog, i’ve featured them heavily each season, whether they be denim, slacks, linen, ankle cut or not. they’re an incredibly versatile pant. you can dress them up or dress them down. you can find wide-leg lounge pants, or they can be the foundation of chic evening attire. a lot of women think that wide leg pants are inaccessible to them, because they must be paired with heels. au contraire. they go perfectly well with flats. don’t believe me? join me through a tour of my archives and see how to wear wide leg pants.
wot’s… uh the heel?
don’t you love a pop of color on a gloomy rainy day? this coat delivers a one-two punch with a vibrant shade of green and slim silhouette. it fits easily over a striped knit blazer, essential shirt, and navy trousers. just the other day i realized my closet was lacking a proper pair of trousers. well, guess i solved that dilemma with this leg-lengthening pant in a seasonless stretch.

so for all of us working gals who wonder what to wear to work on a warm day, have i got an outfit for you. a pair of wide-leg pants are the star of the show, and i love the fit of this marina pant from Ann Taylor that comes in seven colors. a sleeveless black blouse with peter pan collar adds subtle sophistication to this nine-to-five OOTD. and for those of us who love to add a third layer, i chose a linen blend cardigan with a tailored fit. add strappy suede sandals and this outfit is one for the books.

today, i’m wearing a pair of wide-leg pants that are a dream to wear and are currently on-trend. the fit is perfect and the fabric soft – two factors that make a great pant. it’s a nice change of pace to wear a wider leg. and in my humble opinion, it’s a flattering fit on every shape and size.

no heel? no problem.
and a whole lot of linen clothes for spring. as a matter of fact, linen is the perfect fabric all summer long. the fibers are quite strong. it’s more absorbent and dries faster than cotton. plus, linen will keep you cool and fresh in spite of those hot and humid temps. i am loving this white duster from Talbots which is the perfect third layer. it’s lightweight with an open front and has a longer length. i chose a drop shoulder white linen tee to tuck underneath. it looks fantastic with wide-leg blue and white stripe linen pants. but this baby will get lots of wear this summer. white goes with everything. what i particularly liked about this tee is the looser fit without looking sloppy.

this week i am adding a pop of color to my OOTD and having some fun with stripes! a classic striped button-down pairs with slim wide-leg denim jeans from J.Crew. i love to mix stripes with stripes and these jeans are a great alternative to white jeans. my color pop today comes from a hot pink cardigan and pink ballet flats.

wide leg linen pants have a fresh take on summer pinstripe trousers. a pinstripe blazer is exchanged for a summer pinstripe vest. add a cotton tank and you have a thoroughly modern ensemble. [read the entire post…]
