Get a flattering look in wide leg pants


Unlike bell bottoms and flares, wide leg pants are as wide at the hem as they are throughout the rest of the leg, including the calves, knees and thighs. Wide leg pants can be baggy or maintain straight, tailored lines down the length of the leg.

Wide-leg pants are the best option if you need a break from skinny jeans but maintain a polished look. Like other pants, wide leg pants can go places depending on how you dress them up or down.

Here are various stylish options to put to work:

Wool Plaid Trousers

Wool plaid trousers are cozy during cold weather. Try them with a slim turtleneck and heeled loafers.

High waisted flare

Navy velvet trousers are an unexpected yet great staple, especially when they have a bit of stretch to keep you comfortable and pulled together.

Nothing is fit for fall like tweed trousers. For two totally different ways to wear this polyester-blend style, add a silky black bow blouse one day, then try a chunky cream sweater another.

Wide leg pants style has gone in and out of fashion over the years, and has been associated with different lifestyles and genres of music.

During the 1960s and 70s, flares, bell bottoms, and wide leg pants became a popular item in both women’s and men’s fashion. Whether they were denim, corduroy or polyester, trousers featuring a pant leg that covered the majority of the shoe, and in some cases even reached the floor were common. Wide legged pants went out of style during the early-mid 1980s, as baggy shirts and workout wear became popular and were often paired with tapered “skinny jeans” and stirrup pants.
