Wear Now & Later: REALLY Wide Leg Pants

True, super skinnies are back in a major way, but if you want something really MAJOR try going the polar opposite with super wide leg pants and jeans! We are talking almost palazzo pants here. The look and vibe is more 90’s (think Red Hot Chili Peppers) than 70’s (not Abba) so make sure the detailing is not screaming hippie. You want these pants to be almost baggy and in some cases, dare I say…pleated? If you are a bit confused, take a look at the ones I found below.

They can be ankle length or floor length (which can hide platforms which are again back for fall), but not cropped because then they would look like culottes, which is NOT the look we are going for here.

How do you wear super wide leg pants? Carefully. As always, you have to think about proportions and balance. Since these pants are such huge statement, keep your top fitted and tucked in. A tee or tank works for summer and a thin sweater works for fall. A cropped jacket (we love leather, always) works as a topper. You will be seeing these pants everywhere come fall, so if you notice a pair in denim or any other fabric for that matter that speaks to you, grab them! Now.
