How To Style Wide Leg Pants

When this trend was first coming around all I could think about were Jnco jeans?? Do you remember them??? Omg, I remember when they were the best thing!! I was never allowed to have any of the real crazy pairs, but I definitely rocked the subtler ones. I feel like this pic reminds me of like 7th grade ( I was def jealous of girls that had this pair🤣). 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

I think fashion has come a long way since the baggy pants of the 90’s, yet it still brings me back! I got some questions from people wanting to wear them, but not knowing how to style them. I have some cool ideas for you, but I definitely think you have to play around with fit for your own preference.

Tops For Wide Leg Jeans/Pants

I was always an advocate for the skinny Jean, but have 100% jumped on the wide leg bandwagon. I personally prefer to balance the wide leg with a tight fitting top. This is NOT necessary though! You can definitely just tuck any shirt in, throw on a blazer and call it a day. Literally it could be a button down, t-shirt, Henley etc. Tucking it in plays on the hourglass silhouette that wide leg pants help promote!

Bodysuits are great because they stay in place and has the perfect tucked in look every time! Check out the white pair and a close dupe in 5 Dupes For Items You Love.

Crop tops are a standout with wide leg pants and even if you think you can never do a crop top… with a high rise and a longer crop, it is totally doable! The jeans I’m wearing are from This site is new to me, but has some really cute things! They also have a stellar customer service!

Best Shoes For Wide Leg Pants

Normally I would say anything goes, but I don’t think certain shoes look good with wide leg pants. The hem of the pant is very important. If you are styling a cut off wide leg pant, then I would say a wedge or any heel really looks great. If the hem is full length I would steer away from a wedge. Something about the proportions of a wedge with the wide leg doesn’t work for me, UNLESS the pants are tight at the ankle (that was a lot Im sorry).

If you’re thinking about heels with wide legs, that’s my favorite. Block heels, pumps, or open toed heels look good. Heels also add a feminine touch and add a sleekness to a baggy pant outfit.

A flat simple sandal also work great with a wide leg because it shows off the pants and allows them to flow! If the pants are cropped, a flat sandal/flip flop will shorten your silhouette. If you’re tall then it doesn’t really matter as much. Also a chunky sandal or sneaker looks really cute too!!

My favorite chunky sandal you’ve seen me where in tons of posts, on sale too!!

Please do not think baggy pants are not flattering, especially if you have a curvier figure. It’s actually the opposite and if styled correctly can be so slimming. Again, I think the high rise or mid rise are best. If you feel your front bulge is accentuated, stick with a darker wash, don’t be afraid to size up, and embrace shape wear! If all that doesn’t work for ya, add a long cardigan or blazer!

Ok that’s it for now!! Let me know if you need help styling a pair of baggy pants you know you want to buy OR if you want links to anything else I’m wearing!!✌🏻
