Wide-leg trousers for a big summer look
Wide-leg trousers have sauntered in and out of fashion over the last few years.
Their previous incarnation focussed around combat pants but with the 70s style revival this summer, tailored, wide trousers are proving to be a popular look for women’s clothing – whether you’re aiming for a floaty office look or looking for something relaxed for a holiday.
Wide-leg trousers look great with a masculine look – pair with a jacket for a striking silhouette.
For holidays, patterned or coloured palazzo pants can be a great addition – with soft, floating fabric and plenty of airspace to keep you cool abroad.
Wide-fitting jeans are perhaps one to avoid – these often end up looking baggy and slouchy without any hint of style.
But you can try mixing wide-leg trousers with an array of clothes for every effect from evening wear to casual.
Donning a pair of heels will give your legs and bottom a great shape in wide-leg trousers, accentuating your waist and hips. Flats are great for a more masculine look – add wide-leg trousers to a fitted trouser suit to look strong and stylish.
A flowing shirt or blouse can look stunning with wide trousers – but get a great belt to pinch any billowing material in to your waist.
To really get the 70s look, dust off some platforms or big wedges, and go for colourful accessories to look playful, fun and flirty.
