While wide-leg slacks are often thought of as just professional wear, lately they have also been creeping into my leisure style. I found these pants at Forever 21 a few weeks back and was immediately in awe of them. I love pieces that have a combination of comfort and high fashion; frankly, it’s difficult to uncover pieces that have a balance of both, and even harder to find those pieces at a reasonable cost.
Power pieces like this are to be worn in the moments you want to stand out. The pants are a power piece – the make a statement, look professional, and have a sophisticated air to them. Whether you rock them with a casual t-shirt, a stylish button up, or a trendy crop top, your look will always have a slightly more put-together and thought-out appearance. Today I am sharing a few tips on how to style wide legged pants (and how to make sure they don’t drown out your style!) – click through to read more.
How to Style Palazzo Pants
Embrace High Waistlines
Make your legs look extra-long by paying attention to the fit of your wide legged pants. A higher waist fit will make your looks look long and lean, plus it also means the pants will cut-off at your smaller place: your waist. Emphasizing your waist is a great way to create a shapelier silhouette.
Add a Belt to Your Outfit
To further emphasize your waist and leg length, add on a belt to highlight your waistline. These wide-leg pants came with a fabric belt which creates a more hourglass look as well as adding a feminine touch with the bow.
Wear Pointed Heels (even small ones)
Banish your rounded-toe flats when you’re rocking professional-style wide legged slacks! Add on a almond toe or pointed heel to further elongate your leg-line. These sorts of heels will poke out slightly from your wide legged jeans and make your leg-line look a million miles long.
Confidence is Key to Looking Great!
If there’s one thing that will always kill your style-game, it’s self-doubt. If you’re wearing something and you love it then don’t waste any of your time worrying about what others may think of it. Part of embracing your own personal style is allowing it to be just that: personal!
