WIDE LEG PANTS TREND REPORT

0

WHOEVER SAID ‘GO BIG OR GO HOME’ WAS MOST PROBABLY TALKING ABOUT THIS SEASONS FAVOURITE TROUSERS – THE HIGH-WAISTED WIDE LEG TROUSER.

Finding its start in the 90’s as a part of the ever evolving power suit, modern wide leg pants have been dominating high-fashion and high-street collections for the better part of two seasons and show no sign of slowing down. In 2018, the Wide-leg trouser has taken its place among the greats as a staple piece on international runways, influencer posts and even Zambian design houses.

No longer being confined to heavy, unflattering suiting material, these trousers now come in a variety of colours, lengths and even fabrics – including silks, linens and cotton blends. Wide-leg pants are not just popular for their ability to flatter any figure but for the stress-free way in which they can be styled.

They can be worn on a day out, on a day in and even as an addition to that girls-night-out outfit.

A quick way to style them is with a plain t-shirt and box-fresh white sneakers for a laidback look, take this outfit from day to night by swapping the sneakers out for black heeled sandals and a blazer.

For a quick run to the supermarket, these pants are great with caged sandals and a soft slouchy linen shirt and can even come in handy for that event you forgot you had RSVP’d to; pair with court heels, this season’s hottest tops – the frilly print blouse – and a statement purse.

In cooler months, this trend can be incorporated into your wardrobe by throwing on a cropped sweater, leather jacket or bodysuit.

PRO-TIPS:

DO tuck in your top for an instantly put-together look, this is especially useful for office and formal events. Extra points for a monochrome head-to-toe look.

DO invest in pants with a paper bag or belted waist as this will give your look more structure and emphasize your waist.

DO dress up an all-black look with Chitenge print wide-leg pants.
