The best wide-leg pants on the market
The pants trend every working girl should try!
Flashbacks to the 70s aside, there is so much potential for present-day wide-leg slacks. Most women feel like this style makes them look wider than they really are, but if styled correctly, wide leg pants can actually look ultra flattering (and as a bonus, they’re comfy if you choose the right type of material!).
The key is to try on as many different styles until you find just the right amount of width and flare that flatters your shape. An additional tip: if you hem them at just the right place so you can wear them with heels (the hem should almost hit the floor), then your legs will look ultra long!
If you want to ease into the style, though, go for a flared pant. This style of pants is more form-fitting, but flares out significantly below the knee so you still get some of that wide-leg effect towards the bottom.
