How to Wear Wide Leg Cropped Pants + The Odells
Hope you’re ready to throw it back to the 1970s when you reach for your denim this spring, because wide-leg styles are everywhere. Channel your inner Farrah Fawcett when you’re getting dressed in the morning and wear some high-waist, wide leg jeans for a flattering trendy look! Whether you pair yours with a simple white T-shirt, layer on a loose cropped top, or keep it classic with a tank and blazer, you’ll reach for these jeans over and over again. Here are a few tips on how to wear them for spring.
Hem lengths can vary from a shorter culotte style to a longer cropped pant. The most flattering length is about an inch above the ankle.
If your pants are really voluminous, wear a tighter fitting top to keep you from looking heavy and frumpy. The one’s I’m wearing here are more fitted through the waist and top of the leg, so a short but not so fitted top works well. You could also do a semi tuck to nip the waist a bit.
Stick to dark neutral colors such as blue, gray, taupe, or black if you’re nervous about looking bottom heavy. These colors are more slimming.
Wear a tee shirt and a jacket with wide leg cropped pants. It balances out your hips by making your shoulders look wider.
Al little bit of height goes a long way to elevate this look and make you appear taller and slimmer. So unless you’re tall enough to pull it off, wear a bit of a heel with this style pants.
