Over the last few years, skinny jeans have exited the fashion world, and we have welcomed baggy, wide-leg options. Stylist Erica Wark fills us in on the wide-leg pant trend and shows us how to wear them this season. 

Look 1

When it comes to wide-leg pants, you can’t go wrong with a neutral colour. This grey herringbone pair from Zara gives off a sporty vibe paired with a comfortable pair of sneakers and a white -shirt. TIP: When pairing wide-leg pants with flats, tailor them longer in the front and shorter in the back so you’re not stepping on them.

Black is always a staple in our wardrobe. TIP: Look for a medium to high-rise pair to elongate the entire look. These bestselling Reformation Mason Pants come in various sizes, including petites.

Go all in on the trend with wide-leg denim! This pearl-embellished option from Dynamite is fun and easy to wear with anything. TIP: Opt for a slimmer wide-leg denim since denim is a bulkier fabric when shopping for wide-leg denim.

Wide-leg cargos are also on trend this season, and we love this pair from the Danish fashion brand Herskind. TIP: When it comes to wide-leg pants, choose a pair of elastic pants at the waist and ankle to balance the loose fit and large pockets.
