Incorporating Wide leg pants into your arsenal

It’s time to try out the wide leg pants if you haven’t. Boot-cut jeans and bell bottoms have been having their way for months now. Wide leg pants are following closely. Skinny pants have held the court for a long time. It’s time for a fresh touch.

Here are a few tips on how to pull them off nicely:

Wide leg/flare pants can be leg lengthening especially for petite ladies when they fit well at the top. You might as well add a pair of heels.

High waisted ones are also lengthening and may help cover up muffin top and hold your tummy in, as well as create an illusion of an hourglass figure.

Pair with a crop top or slim fitted top/shirt to create a nice silhouette.

Wide legged pants that flare out from under the hips downwards are great for pear shaped ladies as they help balance out their shape- Pear shaped ladies have a smaller upper torso compared to their lower body. Ensure there are no side pockets as they would add extra bulk.

Wide legged pants that are wide all over are good for tall women. Short or fuller women would have to be careful with this style, so they don’t appear bigger.

To make you appear even taller, buy them in vertical stripes.

You may also pair them with loose tops but cinch in your waist with a belt for a good definition.

Do you know you body shape?
It’s important that you do.
Do you have short legs, long legs, muffin tops, large bust, wide waist, small hips, flabby arms, well defined waist, short upper body……?

Knowing your body type will help you choose your pieces wisely and style them to suit your body.

Have a great week guys!
