Wide Leg Pants for Spring: 3 Foolproof Outfit Ideas

Oh hi there friends! This week has been such a breath of fresh air for our family. Our oldest is on Spring break and we’ve done… absolutely nothing. We’ve had lazy mornings, done LOTS of coloring, and watched lots of movies. It’s been a chance to take a breath and I’m thankful for it. David and I even got a chance to get away and take lots of photos for upcoming blog posts so you guys won’t have to suffer through mirror selfies anymore (or at least for the next couple of weeks 😆).

One of the first posts I wanted to shoot is a part 2 to the wide leg pants styling post I did last fall. I had so much fun styling these pants for cooler weather (and you guys loved it too!) so I thought it would be fun to come up with three more ideas for warmer weather.

I’ve had these pants for so long , and there’s something just really magical about them. I think it’s the combination of the muted camel color, the wide leg shape, and the high rise. They’re just a really versatile, flattering pair of pants. Plus, they look great with warm and cool tones (think: black and brown accents).

I could literally sit here and sing praises about these pants all day, but how about we get to how I’ll be styling wide leg pants for spring. 🙂

Oh and just a quick note about these pants: they do run big so size down a full size.

K. Let’s get to it!

Option 1

Ooh ooh ooh! New favorite outfit! I just LOVE this combination so much! There’s just something about the color scheme (navy, camel, taupe), that just gives a TINY nautical vibe without going overboard. Plus, all of these pieces are absolute classics so the overall effect is very timeless. I’m always a sucker for a good French inspired outfit!

I also really love this combo! First of all I love the neutral tones (always a sucker for neutrals!), but I also love the juxtaposition of the wide bottoms and oversized sweater paired with the fitted top and trouser pockets at the top. There’s a very pleasing dichotomy in this outfit and I really love it. The slight texture in the tee, the sweater, and the shoes also adds a bit of visual interest that keeps the outfit from being boring.

And this is kind of like the warmer weather version of the outfit above, but with a fun twist on the bottom. All of the pieces are really classic, but the fun aspect of the chunky white sole and the unexpected color on the sandals makes this anything but boring! The sweater tank adds such a nice touch as well. It’s a really nicely constructed knit, and it looks beautiful in person (it also comes in a really pretty sage color!).


So as you guys can see, all of these looks are pretty basic… but the addition of a few fun tweaks makes them anything but boring. And you could even add some fun pops of color to spice things up (a red breton stripe, a colorful cami under the cardigan, the sage green version of the sweater tank?) a bit more. One of the things I’ve learned in my style journey is that more is not always better, and less is sometimes best. 🙂

Well that’s all I have for you guys today! I hope you enjoyed this little spring wide leg pants styling session. Are you a wide leg pants fan like I am? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,

    I have these pants and love ’em too! Although I think they’ve changed their sizing recently because I order a second pair in the same size, and ended up having to size up. Also, the “short” size is now much shorter than it used to be (for reference I’m 5’2″ and now it’s too cropped for me)
