When we think of wide-legged pants, the first thing that comes to mind is Charlie's Angels. The trio popularized this trend back in the '70s walking the streets in wide-legged pants, waiting for their next mission.
There are 3 styles of wide-legged pants: wide-legged trousers, sharp and tailored with a mid to high waistline; wide-legged jeans, wide-legged pants that are wide from top to bottom with a baggy feel; and palazzo pants, which are made out of soft and sheer fabrics.
Although wide-legged pants fit best on long-legged gals, some petite ladies are trying to pull off this trend as well. Make sure the length of the pants is just right for your height when wearing your heels. If your pants are too long, the look might be too sloppy and baggy. Make sure to have the pants altered if you got a pair that's too long. Find a pair that falls perfectly on your waist. It will show off your curves in ways you can't imagine. Pair off wide-legged pants with a slim-fitting top to balance out the volume on your bottom half. A free-flowing blouse tucked in and paired with a waist-cinching belt will work, too. Finish the look with chunky-heeled pumps or wedges.
