How To Style Wide Legged Pants To Suit Your Body Type

We are currently seeing cropped wide legged pants everywhere! They are a fun item of clothing to wear and style. Just like a good pair of jeans, you have to find the right pair of wide legged pants that will suit your body type. Keep in mind these are quite voluminous, but that does not mean they should be intimidating to wear. We have put together some tips and tricks on how to style these fashion forward pants. 


For our petite girls you already know that too much fabric can swallow you up. Look for a pair that has a hip-skimming cut with a flat waistband. Also try wearing pants that have stripped pattern, as well as paired with a cropped top or tucked in to allow for the pants to elongate your body. Or better yet, wear a matching set. Pair your outfit with heels rather than flats, as they can make you appear shorter when paired with the pants.

Worried about whether or not this style of pants are going to make you look wider or not? Stick to a heavier-weight material such as a chino or denim. Opt for an A-line shape with structure, as well as pair them with cropped jackets to accentuate your hourglass figure. Go for something high waisted, with the fitted top to show off your waist and curves.

For those who are tall, most styles of wide legged pants will suit you. Use your height as an advantage and be creative with how to style your pants. Culottes are always a fun shape; they are a shorter pair of wide legged pants. Try layering up your outfit with pairing your pants with tunic tops or dresses. You could even go for a pair that has slits in the side, to show off your long legs. Avoid wearing chunky sweaters, jackets or tops, as these will only hide your long look.
