The Wide Leg Pants with Flats Trend—a Super Fashion Forward Trend for Super Hot Days

By Posted on 2 min read 509 views

Summer is a few weeks a way and I am more then ready to shake off the winter blues, pack up the sweaters and the skinny jeans and get my summer jam on. Last week I wrote about how hot New York gets in the summer and how wearing form fitting clothes can make you feel like you are roasting alive. For me summer in New York is all about lose fitting clothes that give you plenty of breathing room— anything that will make you feel more comfortable and that includes what’s on your feet as well. So I am totally in love the wide leg pants with flats trend. The other day I was walking through the subway on my way to work and I saw a young women wearing super wide leg flood length trousers in a mustard yellow color with pointy black loafers, a wide cut black top and a black moto jacket. And I thought she looked great, and this reminded me that I need more of both of these items in my closet. I recently bought a pair of super wide leg pants at COS in black but I want to pick up a few more pairs in other colors. I want long ones, flood height and ankle grazing. And a pair in a print perhaps? And for flats so far I have a pair of slip on sneakers in white, a pair of Adidas, a pair of fringe sandals, a pair of Aerosoles and couple of pairs of ballet flats with straps. But of course I need more, right? How do you feel about this trend? Do you do it? Or are you more of a shorts and sun dresses kind of girl?


Navy wide pants are so yuppy chic. Loving how Amy of Fashion Jackson styled hers with these neutral flats and wide cut top. And that Chloe Cross Body Bag doesn’t hurt either


And what about a double whammy of white? Cool huh. To see more cool looks from this stylish blogger head to

    I tend to wear dresses or skirts more during the summer cause I don’t like the feel of pants. I do like the look of wide leg pants though and I’m actually on the hunt for a pair of culottes.

    Yes! Wide legged pants have been making a comeback recently and I am really loving the trend. I am looking for a white one but they are usually very sheer. ;-(

    Personally, I’m totally in love with wide leg pants, but I tend to love the extra long kind. Unfortunately, that means that I frequently step on the hem- it makes for an uncomfortable setup. I need to try some shorter varieties and see how they look.

    Perfect trend!! I’m still nervous to try though! I feel like I’m too curvy to pull this off.

    Love this look for summer and beyond. It is very chic. I don’t ewar short soften, so a skirt or these pants would be great. Summer is upon us! Yay!

    I used to wear wide-legged trousers all the time, then stopped. Now, I want to grab a pair again, because I just love those navy pants! <3
    Great inspiration. Have a nice weekend.
