How to Style High-Waisted Wide-Leg Pants

The high waisted wide-leg pant is a perfect choice for the modern girl who wants to look smart, chic and stylish. They are so versatile and growing hugely in poularity in 2018 — being worn to coffee mornings, social events, and the office alike. We have seen them on fashion designer Victoria Beckham, bohemian goddess Vanessa Hudgens and of course, the entire Kardashian clan, but how do you style your high-waisted wide-leg pants for the best looks? 

Firstly you need to know which high waisted, wide leg pants you should be hanging in your wardrobe. What looks good in the window or on your favorite fashion influencer, does not always translate when we step into them yourself. Cue Tip No# 1.

Body Shape is Important.

When it comes to choosing your high waisted wide leg pants, consider your unique, and beautiful body shape. Although there is a wide range of options from our high street shops, there is also a cut and shape that best suits you. Think about the waist style, how wide you should go, what hem length suits you best. Taking time to figure this out, will provide you with the ability to style your high waisted wide legs pants perfectly. It also means you can experiment with color & patterns, safe in the knowledge that the fit is awesome.

So what's next.... 

Wear the right underwear!

First and fullmost, you need to wear the right underwear! High-waisted wide leg pants are designed to be smooth and sophisticated so avoid the very untrendy VPL — visable panty line — at all costs. Opt for seamless briefs or sheer fabric (not tight) thongs. Your color choice is just as important, dark underwear under crisp white or delicate cream palazzos is just not that attractive. 

Tucked in is Fashionable.
High waisted pants are destined to be worn with for a tucked in blouse or top. Avoid overly baggy options: if you are opting for the “tucked in top” look, then you want the tucked in element to be seen. Most high-waisted wide leg pants have detailed waistlines — ruffled egdes, fixed belts and fitted feature design bands — so going relatively plain when it comes to the top is a sensible choice. 

Bodysuits Are a Winner.
When it comes to mastering how to style high-waisted wide leg pants, nothing is better than a bodysuit. Bodysuits were designed to be worn with these glamous bottoms (even if they didn't know it when they were actually designed). Their fitted shape and under fastening make them suited to all and every shape and style of high-waisted wide leg pants on the market. Whether you opt for a plunging neckline, lace elegance, long sleeves or skinny strapes, you cannot go wrong with this combination. 


Outerwear shouldn't be an Afterthought. 
After spending the time, effort and money to get the right underwear, the best cut and shape of high-waisted wide legs pants and pairing it perfectly, you do not want to spoil the outfit but slinging on any old blazer, jacket or coat. Continue what you started; and think about the outerwear that would compliment your ensemble best.
