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:
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.
