How to Wear Wide-leg Pants

Hear why pros are happy they’re back  

From Rachel Zoe’s spring 2014 collection

Mary norton, director of visual merchandising at Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant
“I am thrilled wide-leg trousers are making a comeback. This breezy style is wonderful for our hot climate and can be fantastically flattering if worn properly. Pair them with tucked in, fitted shirts to make your waist look tiny and your legs look long. Avoid wearing them with flat shoes, as this look can easily become dumpy.”

Anthony Brown, Buyer at Shoes On King
“These are a nice break from the form-fitting, skinny pants craze but look best on taller women with longer torsos. You can pair every heel height with these pants, but this season, my favorite shoe to see them worn with is the strong-heeled, ankle-wrap sandal.”
