Wide leg pants for spring is a huge trend in fashion right now. Since I am 5’4″ tall, I am always squeemish about wearing wide leg pants. They tend to make me look short and stout. Despite this fact, I love how they look. There is a certain effortless vibe wide leg pants give off, and I am drawn to anything effortless.
When I saw these wide leg pants for spring from Banana Republic with vertical stripes, I thought the stripes might offset the wide leg, and not make me look short and stout. I was almost right!
I tried on these pants with both flat shoes, and tall heels. I found with flats, I look short and stout. Ugh! When I paired the pants with high heel platforms, the pants were balanced out, and voila; I look normal again! Yay! I found wide leg pants for spring I can actually wear!
One of the things I love about Banana Republic, is that they offer petite, and short pants. My height is on the border for petite clothing, which means petite pants do not always fit properly because my waist is long, and my legs are short. With Banana Republic’s short pant option, I can find the proper rise, and leg length, without having to have the pants altered. Love that!
I have been wearing my striped, wide leg pants for spring with a tee, and heels, but they can be styled so many other ways. For meetings or the office, they can be paired with a blazer, or crisp shirt. On colder days, they can be paired with a light sweater, and jacket. I’m looking forward to wearing these striped wide legs pants for spring in many different ways throughout the season.
Have you tried the wide leg pants trend? What do you think of the trend?
