Skinny pants and jeggings have been the go-to style of trousers for a while. But we can give our legs a break this season because flares and wide-leg trousers are back in style.
Aside from being comfortable, wide-leg trousers are reminiscent of the menswear-inspired fashions that were popular in the ‘40s and ‘70s – think Katharine Hepburn and Diane Keaton. The styles that are coming back for fall/winter 2015 range from business-appropriate tweed to night-on-the-town leather and chiffon.
These pants are best paired with silky blouses, crop tops, and a chunky heel to keep the focus on their wide, draped cut and to help balance your proportions. When the snow starts to fall, wide-leg trousers will look great with a turtleneck to keep you both chic and warm. Whether you want to wear this style for work or play, we’ve got you covered with a list of some of the most stylish wide-leg trousers to get you started:
STRAIGHT-CUT TROUSERS MID-RISE
These classic checked trousers are a perfect addition to your winter office wear wardrobe. Wear it with a pussy bow blouse for that late ‘70s/early ‘80s business attire look.
WIDE-LEG VELVET TROUSERS
Hit two trends with one pair of pants with these velvet wide leg trousers. They can work for both the office and a date night and, best of all, will definitely keep you warm during January and February in Toronto.
CHEAP MONDAY WIDE LEG CROP FAUX LEATHER TROUSERS
For a more stylish edge, pick up these cropped faux leather trousers that have a bit of a punk rock vibe. Go out in full rocker mode with a slouchy t-shirt or pair them with a cozy sweater for a more dressed down look.
DR DENIM ODA WIDE LEG TROUSERS
Comfortable and stylish, these basic black wide-leg pants can be worn casually or in the office. Since they’re totally versatile, you’ll get a lot of wear out of these this season.
RECLAIMED VINTAGE WIDE LEG HIGH RISE TROUSERS IN KNITTED 70s ZIG ZAG
These dreamy semi-sheer trousers have a glamourous Old Hollywood look to them. Take these with you to a tropical resort to look stylish on a winter get-away vacation. Or wear them out in the winter under a faux fur coat to keep that glam look.
WILFRED GERLIER PANT
Mustard is so underrated. The vibrant colour of these trousers is more of a bold choice and will pop when you wear them with white, black, brown, navy blue or orange.
WILFRED JALLADE PANT
With a tie at the waist, these trousers help define your shape so you’re not swimming in this wide-leg look.
