Like many other short girls out there, I struggle with being able to wear wide leg pants. Because this was such a strong trend this season, I knew something had to give.
It turns out when you style them a particular way, you can wear them. It’s all about the accessories and the top, too. Continue reading for my style tips on how to wear wide leg pants if you’re on the shorter side.
Wear with heels, this will give the illusion that your legs are longer than they appear. I always find when I show my ankles it really helps. You don’t want to drown in your pants (or) jeans.
Don’t wear a top that’s too long. You want to break up your torso and legs, so aim for a top that’s on the croppier (is that a word?) side. To be honest, when I ordered these pieces, I didn’t even realize they were perfect for each other until I put them on.
Accessorize. Break up your neutral outfit and add a statement piece, it can act as a focal point for your outfit. Besides, if you’re like me and don’t tend to wear colours that much, adding a bright coloured necklace does the trick.
In fashion, it’s all about taking risks. I’m so happy I stepped outside of my comfort zone and tried something I would never have thought I could pull off. So, I challenge all you short(er) ladies to give it a go, too.
What’s the one piece of clothing you thought you couldn’t pull off but now you can?
