Good afternoon everyone, today’s post is on how to wear wide-leg trousers. I find high waisted wide-leg trousers to be my go to trousers for elongating my legs. Also they make my outfit look much more put together and less on the casual side, of course that also depends on how I style them. A pair of classic tailored wide-leg trousers will never go out of style, they ooze sophistication and give off that polished look. There are plenty of option for all budgets that will for sure elevate even the most casual trainers and white t-shirt.
The Wide-leg trousers were significantly present on the SS20 runways. From the likes of Victoria Beckham to Louis Vuitton where relaxed fitting wide-leg trousers were mostly paired with blazers and overcoats as part of a suit.
HIGH WAISTED WIDE-LEG TROUSERS
So lets begin with my black high waisted wide-leg trousers which are from Karen Millen and are a few years old now. I find them to be very flattering and here I have paired them with some high heeled boots to elongate my legs and make them appear to be longer than they are! Next I grabbed my black fedora hat from Whistles which always adds some cool vibes to my look. I then put on my black sunglasses from Le Specs at Net-A-Porter. Finally I opted to wear a bold lip in the shade Lady Danger from M.A.C.
BODYSUIT OR ROLL KNECK FITTED TOP
When it comes to styling the wide-leg trousers you can either style them like I have with a black bodysuit or a fitted roll neck long sleeve top for a sophisticated ensemble. My black bodysuit is from ZARA and I love how this simple garment can just look so chic once paired with the wide-leg high waisted trousers. You can of course pair it with a roll neck long sleeve top which would equally work rather well here.
Next and you can pair the wide-leg trousers with an over-sized blazer for a high-fashion look. Blazers always tend to amp up an outfit, making it look polished and put together. So here for going out I could have easily draped my blazer over my shoulders. You can add a different colour blazer to your wide-leg trousers to make a statement!
OVERSIZED SLOUCHY SUIT
Moving on and if you have gone for a more slouchy pair of wide-leg trousers, style it with either a blazer or a coat for a polished and Modern look. If you are looking for style inspiration then have a look at Victoria Beckham who loves to wear the slouchy wide-leg trousers paired with a blazer and a shirt for a sophisticated look.
