How To Wear This Season’s Wide Leg Pant

You may have seen this pant on someone and literally burst out laughing. Over-sized and overly long, are these people dressing up or playing dress up. CIIN gives you the scoop on how to nail this latest trend.

Let it be High-Waisted

This pant is meant to hang beautifully, so firstly it needs to be a soft crepe, with just enough structure. For the pant to fall properly to the ground it needs to start up high. The higher the waist the better.

Let It Have Two Pleats

This is not the style for a fitted across the hip pant, let it hang comfortably from the waist with two generous pleats and even some pockets.

Does It Have a Center Seam ?

You will need a center seam down the length of the pant, this will elongate your legs. The center seam will also cut the leg virtually in half so you appear thinner.

How to Achieve the Perfect Puddle

These pants are meant to be worn long, the need to sit on the ground. How far down should the go ? They need to have a single 'break' in the fabric, at around the ankle length, before falling... Anything more and you may drown in them.

Let Them Be Wide

Unless you are model-like, really tall and slim we would recommend you stick to the wide leg all the way down. The thigh-hugging, flared pants are a little too theatrical for most of us. Taller people will possibly get away with it more

Pointed Shoes are the Rule

Finish off your look with a pointed pair of shoes, they may not show very much but they will give you an extra elongated look. Wide leg pants are not easy to pull off, so we will need all the help we can get.
