Ok, can we talk about wide-legs?  I know we all love our skinnies.  From skinny denim to office-essential cigarette cuts, they’ve been our go-to when it comes to pants for the longest time.  But I love that I’ve been seeing more wide-legs recently.  There are so many ways to style them and they have quickly become a staple in my closet.

I personally love wide-legs and here are my top 5 reasons why:

1. They make you look like a total boss babe!

There’s something so bold and confident about wide-legs.  They definitely make a statement.

2. They make for a great 9-5 and beyond.  

They are office appropriate AND you can carry them into the night by pairing it with something like a crop top.

3. They make your legs look a mile long. 

I mean…need I say more?

4. They are WIDE-LEGS.

Meaning, they don’t stick to your legs.  Light weight linen or cotton pairs like I’m wearing in this post are especially great for those hot summer days.

5. They’re edgy, yet feminine. 

Don’t be fooled by the fact that they’re pants.  Their length and flow give them that feminine edge.  Depending on their cut (especially the really wide cuts), sometimes, they almost look like a maxi skirt.  If you want to play up the feminine look, try pairing them with a ruffled top.


These wide-legs from Zara are one of my favourite wide-legs (similar here , here and here).  I love the ruffled paper-bag waist.  I also love the vertical stripes, which make my legs look extra long!  What are your favourite wide-legs?  Comment below!! 🙂
