Fashion Friday: Wide Leg Silhouette

Skinny jeans not your thing? You will be happy to know the wide leg silhouette is on trend and oh so flattering.

I love a free flowing linen pant for those cool summer summer nights — perfect for a backyard patio party or a casual lunch date.

Or try a more tailored wide leg suit pant for the office or for church.

Wide leg pants aren’t for everyone or for every occasion, but they can be an elegant, stylish addition to your wardrobe.

See Angelina Jolie wearing a satin wide leg pant to the Roman premiere of The Tourist:

Are you excited about the return of this trend?

  1. Thank goodness! The wide legg pant can look frumpy, but it is also sooo forgiving for those of us who have some “width”.

  2. i LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this trend! so easy to wear and so flattering!

  3. I’m forever thrilled since I didn’t get into the whole straight leg / skinny jean trend. The hardest part about flare is that “dainty” shoes are never a go.

  4. What I like is that height-challenge women like myself can still wear this type of pants, as long as we keep an eye on the proportions.

  5. IDK, a lot of these pants look frumpy on me. I’ll wear them, but only if I can find some to look good. Glad it’s summer and I have time to search before I try to embrace it.

    • I don’t look good in the more casual rumply ones. But I do like a dress pant in a wide leg if I can find just the right fit. I have a pair from Banana that I love. Typically I’d say you’re better off in this style if you’re tall, but you are so fit and slim that I bet you could work it — with heels, of course! 🙂
