We love wide leg pants as much as we love happy hour (and that’s a lot). They are the easy, breezy, beautiful Covergirl of pants: comfortable, flattering and the perfect piece to tie an outfit together. During the warmer (dryer) seasons they are simple go-to pants, but as winter rolls up a few tricks are in order to pull them off without completely ruining the bottoms in rain and slush. Consider the cropped wide leg pant as the holy grail for all seasons. Whether they are just above the ankle or up to mid calf, we highly recommend picking up your hem for winter. Not only will this avoid the unruly weather at your feet, but it is also the perfect trick to show off your shoes… and socks.
A pair of wide leg corduroy trousers are the perfect winter white pant. The warm cream color matches with, well, basically anything, and their slightly cropped fit will keep them in a mud-free zone. We love them paired with classic leather boots such as the Intentionally Black Jacob boot, which are the perfect height.
Classic Black Trousers
Everyone needs a pair of black trousers in their life. We especially love these Silvae twill pants. They out-style any old run-of-the-mill black pants with a paper bag waist and unique embroidered buttonholes. Fairly above ankle, they are perfect for showing off your fancy socks so pair them with LOQ block heeled pumps for full sock exposure.
Fun Work Pants
Made of soft raw silk and high waisted, these golden-hued Ali Golden trousers are a great addition to your wide leg pant collection. Their pleated waistline gives them a more work appropriate feel but never doubt these trousers can be dressed both up and down easily. With the rolled cuff we love them paired with Coclico’s gray patchwork ankle boot.
Of course a good pair of jeans is essential. We have to admit that the wide leg cut is our all-time favorite. This cropped pair by Neuw are definitely easy on the eyes. The almost primary blue color feels fresh and the length is pretty much perfect. We love them paired with the No. 6 clogs in rust. The two hues would look unreal together.
The Luisa Et La Luna Matilda pant takes cuffed pants to whole new level. They are cropped above ankle and have a slightly flared leg making them perfect for almost any shoe type. We particularly love them with the Coclico Leitzel, showing off the amazing suede patchwork detailing.
