Would You Try Cropped Wide Leg Pants?

Looking to lighten up your pants wardrobe this summer? Have you tried the cropped wide leg pants trend? After all, warmer temperatures call for a wider leg. (Psst … these adorable “short pants” are also known as sailor pants, painter pants, palazzo pants, or a gazebo pant, and many have an on-trend high waist.)

Majorly cute, and with plenty of 70s vibes, the shape is actually much more flattering than you’d think. Truly, the cropped, wide-leg silhouette is easy, comfortable and shape-friendly (especially when combined with a higher waist.) Even if the idea of such a bold pant gives you the fashion jitters, rumor has it this pair from J.Crew (though I’m digging this pair too!) and the oh-so-popular Jesse Kamm sailor pant are both universally flattering, this Madewell pair is often compared to the pricier Kamm pant and is on MAJOR sale, and this crepe pair is a subtle way to try the trend; so one of these pairs may just be worth a try-on. And if you really want to dive in, there’s an affordable and adorable version from Everlane with pleats.

The pant can also be styled up or down easily – and you know I love a look that can go from day-to-night seamlessly. This is the kind of pant you can take on vacation, wear to work, pair with heels for a night on the town, the possibilities are pretty endless.

Inspiration right this way …

    Ahhh, I love these cropped wide leg pants on each girl, but I’m a shorty. I’m not sure that I could pull it off. I certainly had wide leg pants in the 90’s and rocked them all the time. Thanks for sharing some inspiration.

    Xoxo,

    I think this is such a cute style, but since I’m a shorty I probably couldn’t pull it off! so cute though!
