Impeccably chic 70s-style, high-waisted wide leg pants are making a huge comeback!

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.

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.
