Stylish ways to wear wide-leg pants as seen on local influencers
With Y2K fashion on the rise, there’s no doubt that wide-leg pants are back in the scene, and it’s seemingly back for good! No hate for our once-beloved skinny jeans (some still love those, and that’s okay!), but after years of stuffing ourselves on pants suction-cupped to our legs, we’re done with it.
We’re not certain why the trend is back, the reasons may vary, but boy, aren’t we glad! Sometimes, all we need are fashion-forward pants that are comfortable, leg-elongating, and versatile – wide-leg pants are exactly that!
Be ready to boost your glam quotient because we’ve rounded up five influencer-approved looks that prove that wide-leg pants are the new closet staple!
Paired with chunky heels
We have seen the Pinterest-Girl aesthetic everywhere, but Andrea Brillantes‘ wide-leg pants and chunky heels combo makes it seem like she’s been pulled right out the web! Andrea’s a testament that contrast is the key to highlighting details. Completing the look with the daintiest pink top, a white mini bag, and a vintage-looking hair-do, there’s no mistaking that she is a Barbie, indeed.
Up a notch with a blazer
If you’re looking for a way to make your wide-leg pants dressier, look no further as Mimiyuuuh shows us how it’s done. As if pairing the pants with a blazer is not a statement enough, Mimi took it to a whole new level by wearing it cropped! She paired her dark wide-leg pants with silver accessories and a pair of gray square-toe statement boots. Not forgetting a pop of color on her eyeshadow, our girl, Mimiyuh, is camera-ready!
If you previously thought that wide-leg pants only go well with tight-fitting tops, then clearly, you still haven’t seen how Laureen Uy does it! Everything screams cozy and fun as she rocks her blue wash wide-leg pants, turtleneck top, and color-blocked fuzzy jacket ensemble. Completing the look with some ever-dependable dad sneakers. Just like Laureen, you can pair your pants with sweaters, and even hoodies, to match the breezier weather.
A bit extra
Count on Rei Germar for some never-before-seen beach inspo. Who would’ve thought that pieces of denim and the beach can go well together? It seems that Rei made a good call by wearing her denim-on-denim fit to the beach for some editorial-esque vibes. The side tie detail of her cropped top is everything we need to balance the wide-leg pants engulfing her bottom half. And can we just marvel at the unique button placement on her dark denim wide-leg pants? Go for a perfect beach day as Rei did and sport something unexpected!
Back to (elevated) basics
If you’re looking for a way to spice up your wide-leg pants-basics combo, then you’re looking right at it! Ashley Garcia is rocking cargo-type wide-leg pants, and she made the fit a bit more elevated by pairing it with a black ribbed long sleeve top! If you want to recreate the look, don’t forget to accessorize. Like Ashley, give your look a whole new character by maybe adding a newsboy hat, sunglasses, and some fun rings. A fool-proof way to look like you’re from the Mean Girls or Bratz, your call!
