It’s official. Skinny-legs are out and wide legs are in!
Ok, well not quite. The skinny silhouette will still be around for some time yet (that trend has some serious staying power), but this year is all about the wide leg pants (think super wide leg,palazzo pants, with a high waist).
These babies combine a completely new look with comfort, elegance and an feminine, tailored look. They’ve never been adopted by the masses, like the skinny, but they can add a whole new dimension to your wardrobe!
The best way to wear them is with heels, probably of the wedge variety. The only exception to this is if you are trying out a masculine look – by all means go for mannish brogues. The waist needs to be cinched and visible, so tuck in a close fitting tee or blouse. You can also go totally nautical with denim flares (very wide-legged denims can be a bit too loose), a stripe tee and espadrilles.
A final note: the palazzo looks best on the taller, lankier frame, so if you are more petite, go for cropped pants, or a more subtle flare paired with heels.
