How To Wear: Wide Leg Pants

I had few requests for styling logistics when I asked what you all wanted to see at Loverly Grey. I loved this question because as a stylist sometimes I forget that people don’t always see in terms of the right shoe with the right silhouette or how to pair the perfect color palette. I have loved wide leg pants the last few seasons! They look good on every shape and size and traditionally, I’ve always loved and seen them in workwear but now they’re incredibly popular in all kinds of textures! Today I’m featuring two of my current favorites from Nordstrom.

When It comes to a structured wide leg pant, I think it’s best to find a more tailored top. If the top you want to pair has a flowy fit, try doing a front tuck or a knot to cinch It in at the top of your pant line. During the cooler months if you choose to add a jacket, opt for a cropped fit so that It doesn’t distract from the wide leg fit. For any look that you want to be pleasing to the eye, you want to create balance in your prints, textures and silhouettes.

A linen style is a little bit easier to pair a top with because It isn’t as structured. If you do want to do a longer or more flowy top, you can get away with It because It will all flow really well together. I love the stripe on these pants, but let’s be honest you could throw a stripe on just about anything and I’m in! These have such a nautical feel to them and would make a great summer vacation or beach look!

Nordstrom has a ton of wide leg pant options! I highly recommend checking out options from Topshop and Madewell. Both of the pairs I’m wearing fit true to size. Wearing XS in the striped pants and size 0 in the pink pants. The grey bodysuit is also a closet must for summer. Fit is true to size – wearing XS.

Anyone who is looking for a change from their skinny denim game, look no further. Not only will this style of pants completely change up your look, It will also give life to some tops in your closet that need to be worn again! What are a few more styles you need a push to try? Drop them below!
