5 REASONS TO LOVE WIDE-LEG PANTS

By Maybelle Morgan, November 7, 2017

Sometimes, all you need for a wardrobe overhaul is to get back to basics and trust in what you know. In this case, we’re talking about the old faithful wide-leg pants — AKA the staple of the minimal Scandi silhouette and, let’s admit it, the comfiest choice in the chilly weather without going full-on track pants. See how these five #AsSeenOnMe snappers are wearing looser-fit pants their way…

Down to earth

The perfect all-year-round shade? Any earthy tones. They're light and fresh for summer but great for adding neutral brightness to your wardrobe come winter. Take a leaf out of ASOS Insider Shope’s book and go Scandi by pairing the crepe cropped pants with an oversized obi-tie white knit. Finish with clean white sneaks and a bright green clutch for a splash of color.

White heat

Winter whites are definitely a thing, as proved by this blogger repping a Parisian-vibes all-light-everything outfit. For a chilled '70s feel, pair a monochrome print tee with raw-edge denim culottes and high-top Converse. Finish with a beige borg jacket and a woven bag for a bit of cozy texture.

Belt it out

You can always rely on wide-leg pants to smarten up any laid-back weekend look. Ultimate proof? This blogger who’s using her teal belted culottes to give structure to her rainbow motif get-up. A tied-up logo tee makes the best of the high-waisted pants, and she finishes it off with stompy platform shoes and bold chunky shades.

Zip line

Pinstripes and the longline shape of these pants make for some truly means-business bottoms, but the exposed hardware zip adds a cool element of detail. To keep it in Scandi blogger territory, pair with a white turtleneck and fresh sneakers, but add a dose of color with a boxy orange denim jacket.

Walk the line

Stripes are never not a good idea when it comes to adding subtle print to an outfit, and monochrome lines make for an especially flattering stride. This blogger gains major FW17 points with a lemon-coloured slogan sweat, a hardware logo belt and chunky leather sliders.
