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

The can’t-go-wrong menswear-style trousers are inspired by the style of fashion icons such as Marlene Dietrich and Katherine Hepburn.

Wide leg pants in fashion

High waisted wide leg pants have appeared a season ago when (from ) impressed the fashion 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, , , and Jason Wu (check out their spring summer collections). Karlie Kloss became the wide leg pants’ ambassador after her Vogue UK editorial by Paul Wetherell. In a January issue she sported pieces from the likes of , 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.
