Currently Coveting: Wide Leg Pants

It's kind of a running joke in my group of friends that I don't own a pair of pants.  In all honesty, I currently own only 2 pairs- one pair of Paige jeans, and one pair of skinny black J Brand jeans.  While I love shorts, for some reason I just don't like the way I look in pants, and don't find them terribly comfortable (someone please tell me I'm not the only one?).  However, while visiting Cakewalk Style Shop last year, I ended up being talked in to trying on a jumpsuit with wider legs- and instantly fell in love.  I'm actually sporting it in my new blog headshot on the right sidebar.  At 5' 3" tall, it's no surprise that I love the look of wide leg pants on myself.  They elongate legs, create a small waist, and generally "help" the proportions of one's body type.  To balance the look, I think a fitted top or crop top looks best:


 
During the fall, a slouchy sweater can add a bit of character and create a carefree feel:





I love the patterned wide-leg pants for a boho, gypsy look:







Top Row: Pleated Wide Leg Pants $88/ASOS 70's Flare Pants $64/Mixed Print Flare Leg Pants $34/
Bottom Row: Roberto Cavalli Animal Pants $514/White Neat Pleat Pants $85/Volcom "Lottie Dah" Pants $45/

So do you own any wide-leg trousers, and if not, would you try this look?
I think I'm going to try it myself this fall.
