The Wide Leg Pant

Article by Caitlin Taylor

The wide leg pant is back! 

We’ve been so used to skinny pant for so many years now that this silhouette might seem a little weird, but it can be a nice change from the skinny pants if you want to try something different.

I’ve found a gorgeous pair from Country Road here at Shore City that I think would be a useful addition to most wardrobes.

And to prove that to you, I’ve styled it three different ways, for three different looks.

So here they are!

 

1. WORK IT!

Workwear is the obvious way to wear these wide leg pants, so let’s start here.

Add a gorgeous, feminine blouse (tucked in of course!), and a heel to elongate your leg, and you’re good to go!

2. CASUAL COMFORT

I must confess, since becoming a mum, this is my favourite way to style things haha! I’m all about the comfort!

But you don’t have to give up on your style to be comfortable! These pants are sup-easy to get down on the floor with the kids, do school pickup or do a bit of work from home.

Team them with a fun tee and some trainers (and no, you don’t have to be 7 foot tall to wear wide legs with a flat shoe – just make sure the hem isn’t too long).

3. GIRLS NIGHT

Girls night, date night, school function, any excuse to get out of the house and dress up a little.

I find people are less inclined to wear dresses out at night as it gets cooler, so these pants make a great alternative. You could even layer with tights if it’s really cold!

The feminine lace top off-sets the heavy black pant, and you could also swap out the heels for boots.

See how versatile a wide-leg pant can be? They are a great style to have in your wardrobe for any occasion this winter!

 

Until Next Time, Happy Shopping
