Wide Leg Pants Make a Comeback

Impeccably chic 70s-style, high-waisted wide leg pants are making a huge comeback! Love it or hate it, they hit the highs of your figure with a flattering waist and wide legs and promise to bring a sleek, sophisticated new-season look. The can’t-go-wrong menswear-style trousers are inspired by the style of icons such as Marlene Dietrich and Katherine Hepburn.

Wide leg pants in

High waisted wide leg pants have appeared a season ago when Phoebe Philo (from Chloé) impressed the world with her monochrome outfit consisting of a camel turtleneck and matching high waisted wide-leg trousers. The surprising ensemble gave the impression of never-ending legs that started where the tiny belt was tied.


This season brings numerous elongated silhouettes too, thanks to the always-sophisticated high-waisted pants. The greatest designers entered the lists to convince fashionistas to ditch their favourite leggings or jeggings in favour of wide leg pants. They were (to name a few) Chloé, Tory Burch, Derek Lam, and Jason Wu (check out their spring summer collections). became the wide leg pants’ ambassador after her UK editorial by Paul Wetherell. In a January issue she sported pieces from the likes of Gianfranco Ferré, Louis Vuitton and styled by Miranda Almond in Tall Order.

Equally confident and elegant, high-waisted wide leg pants are kind to every figure with slimming pinstripes, a flattering high waist and wide legs that balance hips. Look for styles that are skin tight at the top and fashionably wide at the bottom. Wear them with a fuss-free white shirt or a sleeveless tank. The hottest choice are plain white flares (as seen in Akris) that play well with edgier tops and jackets. IT girls match wide-leg pants with silk blouses, boyfriend blazers and technicolor shirts. Dress them up for evening with chunky heels.
