how i wear wide leg pants

  1. Harriet says:

    I am short and have never liked the way I look in a wide leg trouser. To me, the style only fits taller people or slim people. When I was younger and could wear heels to give me height, I would consider this look but I can no longer wear a 3” heel. It’s just not a look that flatters me.

    I love your white striped linen vest and pants!

    I love a wide leg pant. At 5’2″ I have to be a little cautious with them but I grab every pair that works

  4. Holly says:

    I own 1 or 2 pair of wide leg….I really like them. You look amazing Beth.

  5. Leslie says:

    Love these looks. At just under 5’3″ I feel wide legs can be challenging as a previous comment stated. That being said I feel fashion is always about balance and I feel moe comfortable with the wide leg look if it is fitted over my hips and then hangs straight or flares slightly…much like an Aline fit.
    These looks encourage me to try on some looks for the up coming summer.
    Thank you Beth

    I must admit Beth that you can carry this look off, but for me at 5 ft 2 and a Uk size 20 it just makes me look dumpy.

    Lady, this blog keeps getting better and better. Loved todays! Your looks all week long have been so chic and sophisticated. Again, I’d like to say how beautiful, stoic, gracious and selfless you are. None of us knew of your troubles over the last year or two, yet you faced every day with grace and style, and always a smile on your face! You are truly a lady to admire and look up to! God Bless you and your family!!

    Hi Beth,
    The wide leg pants look great on you. They are a great way to hide a swollen knee. But at five feet, size 16 they make me look short and wide. After seeing a photo of me wearing them I vowed to not buy any more. I still wear the old ones for comfort as my knee is still swollen from my surgery

    I have some wide leg linen pants but rarely wear them because I worried I couldn’t pull it off. I love the long cardigan look – but I thought the “rules” were if you wear a wide leg pant the top had to be fitted – which would include a long cardigan? But you look great in it!

  10. Suzanne M Smith says:

    Ooooh, I love all of these. You look great in all these wide-leg styles. I think someone tall like you carries them off beautifully. I’m a big fan of them, and they are comfortable. (And I imagine with your leg still in healing mode right now, they might feel good and look good, too.) I thought about you all through last night. Hope each day gets better for you.

    My wide leg linen pants are my go to during the summer. Thanks for this post

  12. Linda says:

    Thank you for featuring wide leg pants! i’m going to give them a try – I love the way they look.

  13. Eve says:

    It’s the small things I learn that I treasure from this blog. Lime the pink scarf to bring in the pink shoes. Or matching your jacket color to your shoes. I never stop wearing wide leg pants even when they are not in style, I just don’t like the tight pants or gladiator sandals look. The green color is so beautiful with navy. It’s my favorite look here. I need something green. Thank you for your blog and I hope your leg heals quickly.

    Beth, you know how to “rock” the wide leg pant look! For me, it’s all about confidence in your style that makes it work. Each of your examples show total confidence and you just glow!
    I am not sure this look would work for me. I seem to be getting shorter every year and that makes choosing my wardrobe pieces a bit of a challenge.
    Stay well and keep working that new knee. We are so fortunate to live in a time when these surgeries are so perfected.

    Love all the outfits you’re wearing today! They look smashing on you. I just bought 2 pairs of cropped, wide-leg pants but haven’t worn them yet – too cold here in Wisconsin!

    I am so glad to see wide leg pants back in style
