On days when the “I don’t know what to wear” syndrome bites even though your wardrobe is filled with clothes, I can sure tell you that the basics will always be a girl’s best friend. But let's say on that particular day you are not feeling like wearing your skinny jeans but you want to go for a more sophisticated yet very on-trend look, wide-leg pants are a stylish staple.

Today's style guide will clarify how to rock your wide-legs whether you are petite or tall, skinny or curvy. 

The Style 

High waisted wide leg pants can seem a bit challenging to wear for most woman. The usual style would be to tuck in a fitted top or button-up blouse, which I personally find it a bit boring. So, why not try a slightly “shrunken” tee? Look for tees that hit just below the waistband, giving you a casual but still pulled together look.

For more of a bohemian look, try a cropped loose camisole or a printed shirt paired with a sequined or a tuxedo jacket. 

Another look that’s been making the rounds is the “half tuck”.  Perfect for tops that are a bit too long or voluminous, the “half tuck” is simply tucking the front of your shirt into your pants (also an amazing way to incorporate a high waist, while concealing a wide hip).

The Shoes 

Based on the time of the day and how comfortable you like to feel in your shoes a wedge or stilettos are the best options. If you are petite go for stilettos as they will give you the oomph of a #bosslady striding into the boardroom, and if you are naturally tall, a ballet flat or a low heel will be the best option.

Now always remember the golden rule: the hem MUST slightly touch the floor to create a long and lean look. A hidden heel creates legs that go on for days.

The Colour 

Instead of going for a muted coloured pants or denim, explore new textures or colours such as velvet or corduroy, or bright coloured denim and which is very popular this season, that's if you want a more playful touch. Both of these looks are very on-trend at the moment and can be worn from day to night and you can wear them throughout the seasons.
