I Didn’t Think I Could Pull Off Wide-Leg Trousers…Until I Found These

Wide-leg trousers are everywhere this fall, and I’m obsessed. The wider the leg, the harder I find myself falling. At first blush, I didn’t think I could pull off this trend because of my body type. I’ve spent years avoiding wide-leg trousers like the plague, thinking they couldn’t possibly flatter my make curvy frame, wide hips and thick thighs.

Boy, did I get that SO wrong.

Wide-Leg Trousers For Fall: Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone & Lovin’ It

May I introduce…the most flattering trousers I’ve ever owned that actually accentuate my curves. Not to mention, they are almost as comfortable as a pair of sweatpants. It’s safe to say that I’m officially a big fan of wide-leg trousers. In fact, I might make these my go-to pants for fall.

I think the key to making these wide-leg trousers flattering for my body type comes down to the proportions. These trousers already do a great job of lengthening my shorter, curvy frame, but when paired with a crop top? Hello, accentuated waist! Keep scrolling for a few ways I’m stying Maeve’s wide-leg trousers right now.

Wide-Leg-Trousers Outfit Idea 1: Pleated & Preppy

My favorite fall trends in one outfit. I paired my high-waisted, pleated wide-leg trousers with Maeve’s Willa Cable-Knit Sweater Vest and my white chunky-sole Coach loafers to make all my Preppy Professor dreams come true. Maeve is so good lately (you can find it at Anthro), that I’ve been wearing it nonstop this month. Not to mention the price point and quality are hard to beat.

Fit Notes: The vest is actually the perfect fit — boxy and slightly cropped, so it’s easy to tuck into my trousers. Plus, the cream color is the perfect contrast to the navy pants.

Wide-Leg-Trousers Outfit Idea 2: Add a Statement Top

In the past, crop tops haven’t really been a part of my style vocabulary, but they’re pretty perfect when paired with some wide-leg trousers. I snapped up this super-adorable, mod-inspired crop top from Maeve the second I saw it.
