How to Wear Wide Leg Pants by imogenl featuring a vest jacket
Wide leg trousers are one of the season's big items, so how do you wear them and what do wear with them.
There are different ways to wear them, and it depends a lot on your height how best to pull them off.
Tall women can wear wide leg pants with both fitted and more voluminous tops. Let me introduce Karin Davidson, who is a Perth based image consultant I trained last year.
Karin is very tall (around 6 foot) so has the height to wear wide leg pants with longer tops, dresses or coats.
With such a wide pant it's better to not wear them past 3/4 length (just above the knee) as so much fabric till tend to swamp even a tall frame.
You will also want the top to have more fitting through the waist/torso so that you don't look big all over. A voluminous top and voluminous bottom together can easily look sloppy, particularly if the top is on the longer side.
I am average height (5'6") so need to wear my wide leg pants with either shorter jackets or tops, and more fitted jackets and tops.
If you are petite, you will to make sure your wide legs aren't too wide, and wear them with shorter (no longer than hip length tops and jackets. Keep your tops and jackets fitted too as you can't take volume with volume, you may find you need to belt tops with volume to slim their silhouette.
You find that wedge heels work well with a wide pant as they balance the volume. It's best with wide leg pants, which can have a leg shortening effect, to color blend shoes to trousers, or create a column of colour of color to elongate.
