Styling tips for fashion looks with wide leg trousers
Wide leg trousers are a flattering look that anybody can wear, leg lengthening for petite women and hip narrowing for silhouettes that tend towards the pear-shaped, while high-waist styles create a natural hourglass effect. Full-length palazzos in bold colours and tropically inspired prints give off an instant beach vibe with white blouses and simple summer heeled sandals, or add sequin tops and raise your heels for evening looks that sparkle. Wide leg trousers gathered into a cuff worn with cropped tops or bralettes give you an exotic air for summer barbecues and parties. If you feel a little too exposed, slip into a sheer silk shirt.
Add edge to looks with cropped wide leg trousers
Cropped wide leg trousers go from daywear in chino styles to sequin and lace evening designs. Work monochromatic textured finishes with fine knits and leather jackets, keeping your look balanced by picking classic heels and jackets that finish at the waist. Statement shoulder bags with long handles pull the outfit together beautifully. Cut-off wide leg trousers with a tailored finish or in knit fabrics dress up well for work with fitted shirts, unstructured jackets and loafers or sleek ankle boots. Wearing tops tucked in generally gives a more flattering outline, but we think an untucked tunic and longline sleeveless blazer worn over wide leg trousers can look stunning on taller women, creating edgy looks that play with hemlines.
