My go to garment for the past couple of months has been a plus size wide leg pants. I used to always be a skinny jean kind of girl. Even when I was wearing plus size work pants, they were fitted at the ankle and had a skinny silhouette.
However, recently, I’ve discovered my love for wide leg pants. I guess I used to feel like wide leg pants were not made for my short and curvy figure—for many reasons. The first reason I stayed away from wide leg pants was because I used to dress for “flattery.” That means if it wasn’t making my body look contoured, I wasn’t wearing it. So, you could say that wearing plus size pants like these were absolutely out of the question. Secondly, because I am petite and plus size and I stand at 5’2, I was under the impression that all wide leg pants would look extremely baggy and long on me. But as I start to invest in more quality pants from places like Eloquii or Universal Standard, I take frequent trips to a tailor to get my pants hemmed to fit me perfectly. This has been a game changer for me. Not only can I now wear wide leg pants, but they aren’t dragging and they look perfect on my figure!
The Plus Size Wide Leg Pants I’m Wearing…
Even though I’ve been staying home most of the time over the past year and a half, I have been filling my wardrobe with wide leg statement pants that I absolutely love. I feel like I can wear these pants anywhere—from the office to dinner and then to brunch with my friends. I often love pairing wide leg pants with a fitted crop top or a tucked in bodysuit. For this outfit, I’m wearing plus size wide leg pants from Eloquii and Eloquii’s plus size bustier. I haven’t got these pants tailored to fit me yet but they are on the list for my next trip. When I tell you I’ve been shopping for wide leg pants like crazy, I’m not joking. These pants are different from most of the other styles I have in my closet though because they are made of linen. So they’re perfect for summer and the warmer days because they’re very breezy and lightweight.
I envision myself wearing this outfit on a tropical vacation while lounging around at a resort, but it could also be a cute look for a day of running errands. How do you feel about wide leg pants?
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 in both the wide leg pants and the crop top, which is my usual size, and both garments fit me perfectly. The pants are a little long on me, especially after I ironed them, but I am also 5’2. These pants are lightweight and don’t have any stretch in them, but they fit pretty loose. The top is structured in the front with elastic in the back and is ultimately very comfortable.
