Flared pants and how I wear them …

I’ve never stopped wearing wide-legged pants because my style has a retro bent to it, but they have only recently become a trend for the mainstream.

As with all of the clothes that I acquire, I prefer them to be versatile and be able to be worn across a variety of contexts …

These are denim, high-waisted and wide-legged and have decorative plackets with big red buttons.

I like to wear them with cropped jackets, including the tartan one shown, this cobalt and black jacket and of course a black one is always effective.

These pants are a recent purchase and I know I will get the wear out of them because they’re an excellent colour and pattern choice. The vertical stripes work well, although the jury is still out as to whether they contribute to a slimming silhouette.

I’ve worn them with a velvet short-sleeved jacket over a mutton chop satin button down blouse for some texture, but it would look gorgeous for the office with a white shirt and black blazer, or a black or red leather jacket – basically you’re only limited by your imagination…

My red pants have been a staple in my wardrobe for quite some time, being high-waisted and having pockets makes them all round winners in my book.

I wear them with a blouse that is a 1940s design but a thin jumper (sweater) or even a t-shirt could work well too.

The pants also look great with the cream leather jacket …

The wide-legged pant is a favourite of mine because they give a feminine, comfortable aesthetic and that’s what I love to wear, although I do wear other types of pants too.

I would love to hear your opinions on wearing wide-legged pants, so feel free to contribute to the comments section and to like this post and follow me for more conversations like this …

    1. Aah! Yes the striped pants are a bit more edgy and certainly very versatile. I’ve always favoured a retro aesthetic, I watched quite a lot of films from the 1940s with my parents and I suspect that as have been an influence. Thank you so much for your comment!


    1. Thank you, Tina! I agree on both counts re the bootleg – both flattering and comfy! I’m thinking of doing a post about the notion of dressing to flatter …. or not, so stay tuned!! πŸ™πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈ
