How to wear wide leg trousers

November 07, 2016

The skinny jeans have become a wardrobe staple but consider the wide leg trouser as a brilliant cold-weather alternative. But how to wear them for your body shape? They look equally good with a tailored shirt or slouchy jumper, with trainers or boots.  And they transition so beautifully into evening which for the festive season solves all your day to night outfit dramas. But avoid a stiletto – not only could the heel get caught in the fabric but a thicker heel helps to balance the silhouette. They are flattering on all body types but which style to choose? No matter what your body shape, I have the style for you. 

Tall – low slung with pleats and lots of fabric for added drama. 

Petite – high waisted with a centre crease to elongate the leg and lengthen the silhouette. 

Curvy – drapey fabric to compliment your curves and flat fronted style to avoid adding bulk. 

Straight – look for straight details like side stripes or a more structured fabric like denim.
