Another fall trend I was anxious to try was wide-leg pants. Ever since I saw the photo spread in Vogue a few months ago of a model wearing a pair of impossibly wide-legged pants, I wanted a pair. My interest was piqued again when I saw this Who What Wear blog post touting “oversized pants”.
But the problem with impossibly wide-legged or oversized pants is they’re impossibly inconvenient to wear during the day, for most of us. The solution? A modified version of the trend, i.e. wide legs that aren’t so wide small children could hide in them.
I stumbled across this pair of wide-legged chinos at Target last weekend. The leg is plenty wide but still very wearable. I wore them with a plain, white T-shirt and my fitted denim jacket. With a wide silhouette on the bottom, I prefer to keep the top fitted to balance the volume below.
