How to find the right wide leg pants for your body type

Wide leg pants, yay or nay? 

I've always thought that wide leg pants would be something that would never work for me. For awhile, I did not even considering them an option when shopping for outfits. I dabbled in the trend this summer, and I now think anyone can absolutely rock them!

My body type is pear shaped and my waist is bigger than my hips. 

To make these high waist pants work for me:

  • I chose a color that was neutral. Neutral is a safe choice when trying a new style!
  • I chose to wear nude shoes. Nude will lengthen your legs! I'm pretty tall already (5'6) but If I were to wear a black sandal or even white, it would cut off my leg. 
  • Choose a shoe without an ankle strap. An ankle strap will cut you off, and make you appear shorter than you already are.
  • I paired it with a neutral top as well for a monochromatic look, and felt so incredibly chic! 
  • Pair it with something tight on top. If you are going flowy on bottom, make sure to do the opposite on top so you do not loose your shape!

For my petite girls - Make sure you get a high waist pair that hits above the ankle! And pair it with a nude shoe to lengthen your legs. 

For my tall girls - Show off them legs! Try a wide side slit trouser. 

If you are hourglass - define your waist with a tie waist wide leg trouser! 

If your shape is inverted triangle - Try a full length wide leg pant that grazes the ground. It will create balance between your top and bottom half. 

If you are apple shape - Wide leg pants that are full length! But make sure they are not high waisted. 

Rectangle shape - you can opt for just about any wide leg pant!


I hope these tips are helpful! I've highlighted a couple body types that might need some guidance when trying the trend of wide leg pants. If you have a question about your body type or what style you should get, leave me a comment or DM me on Instagram.
