After a style has been around for a few years it is often time for a change. Super straight leg skinny pants: don’t know about you, but I am welcoming alternatives, especially for work. Have been hunting for high waisted, wide leg black trousers and recently found these at Ann Taylor. They are cropped so will be a different length on you depending on your height – hitting at the ankle bone seemed to be a good length on me that fully shows off the chic wide leg. If you are taller they will hit above your ankle which also would look cute.
What I love about the high waist of these particular pants is that the waist is not too tight – plenty of room to tuck in a top, which you will always do with this style. Comfortable and flattering too.
With a wide leg choose a shoe that balances and ‘grounds’ the volume; avoid a skinny heel or a shoe that’s too delicate – a boot, a bootie with a high chunky heel, or a wedge looks best…these Chanel booties are perfect! (Hooray Revolve!!!)
If you are going to need a jacket, choose a cropped one that doesn’t hide the high waist…this black leather by Elie Tahari has been in my closet for years!
A simple, classic style is timeless. The silk shirt is another oldie but goodie, Equipment is the brand… I added the floppy bow. 😉
A red scarf for a pop of color before I hit the road…
Trying to ditch the hats but it was so darn cold last week I had to pop on my beret!
So – what do you think? Will you try wide legs???
