Breaking Fashion Myths: The Wide-Leg Pant

Fall/Winter is the perfect time to embrace this reinvented classic.

Designed to flatter every woman—tall, petite, curvy, straight— wide-leg pants are the must-have addition to your wardrobe.

Get ready to fall in love with your new favourite silhouette.

Finding your perfect fit: Do’s and Don’ts.

Do: Focus on fit. Comfortably snug through the waist, hips, and behind is key. Choose a classic shape that falls straight from hip to hemline.

Do: Look for a mid or high-waisted style to maximize the length of your legs.

Do: Find the right hemline for your body. Tip: Full-length pants that graze the floor and have a higher rise are universally flattering.

Don’t: Buy into the myth wide-legged pants aren’t for *you.* Experiment with different lengths and styles you’ll find the wide-leg pant that’s right for you.

Three myths about wide-leg pants—

Myth #1: Heels are your only option.

Let’s put this one to bed right now. Pumps that add height are fabulous—but, you can tailor your look without sacrificing your love for versatility and comfort. After all, comfort has become synonymous with fashion. Whether you love a platform or sneaker, focus on the final hem length. Once you’ve got that nailed down, add your personal touch. Here are a few ideas:

Grab comfortable leather flats and pair them with tailored pants. Have the hem barely skim the ground, so the toe of your shoe is still visible.

Sneaker fan? Wide-leg pants and your favourite kicks are a match made in heaven. Pair a classic colour pant (black, grey, camel) with a colourful sneaker.

Prefer wide-leg pants with a cropped hemline? Reach for a great pair of ankle or over-the-knee boots.

Myth #2: Only certain body types can wear wide-leg pants.

If you’re thinking to yourself, “can I really wear these?” The answer is a resounding yes. Try one of these figure-flattering options:

  • Tuck-in a fitted top for a fail-safe look
  • Go for a shorter length that grazes your waistband like the Savvy Shorty Top
  • Try an asymmetrical hemmed top
  • Add layers to your look. Start with a shorter tank and layer a Go To Cardigan Long

Play with proportions to find what’s most flattering for *you.*

Myth #3: Wide leg pants are difficult to style. 

Wide-leg pants are versatile, looking dynamic on the weekend with a simple white tee or zhuzhed up with a silk blouse for work.

Go for a neutral shade and build your outfit from there. Let’s dive into some effortless options that’ll have you wondering why you didn’t jump on the bandwagon earlier.

Everyday: Dip your toe into this new silhouette by going monochromatic. Pair a fitted T with a cropped pair of wide-leg pants. Finish off the look with a wide-belt and either heels or flats.

For work: It’s as simple as adding a tailored jacket to your look. The fitted jacket will accentuate your waist and complement the fluidity of wide-leg trousers.

For wine: Couple the Dream Pant with a French-tucked slouchy knit or a fitted top that falls at your waistline {<= an ideal alternative to a crop top}.

For weekend: Now’s your chance to experiment. Play with the patterns and colours you’re hesitant to try during the week. Outfit ideas: Wide Leg Stripe Pant with Glance Rusched T
