What to wear with wide leg trousers

If you’re pondering what to pair with your wide leg trousers, it’s all about creating balance. In order to add structure, it’s best teaming with tucked in tops and blouses. Fitted tops, sleek camis and statement crop tops will complement the high-waisted design and flared bottoms, whilst creating an envious hourglass silhouette. The best thing about outfit building with these trousers is the sheer scope and versatility of looks you can create. From clean-cut office looks that combine feminine tailoring with added comfort to relaxed linen fits that are perfect for warmer days, wide leg trousers are a clear winner.

Are wide leg trousers flattering?

Designed to cinch you in at the middle, wide leg trousers ensure a flattering, feminine fit for every shape and size. With their billowing wide leg cut, they work to lengthen your legs and accentuate your waist to create an hourglass silhouette. Known for being universally flattering, the best thing about wide leg pants is their ability to create a chic, polished look, whilst providing the most comfortable fit and feel. When paired with heels, they can even make you look taller and slimmer thanks to their high-waisted design and flared bottoms.

What shoes can I wear with wide leg pants?

When it comes to outfit building with wide leg trousers, high heel sandals and chunky trainers are always a winner. If you’re looking to elongate your legs, we recommend teaming wide leg trousers with stilettos, strappy sandals or heeled mules. With the pants being cut with a billowing wide leg silhouette and a high waist to cinch you in at the middle, the added height will give the illusion of towering pins. If you want to create a more casual look, statement trainers also work well. Chunky trainers and platform pumps again add subtle height with the added bonus of maximum comfort, perfect for days when you’re on the go.
