HOW TOesday: Wear wide leg pants

1.cristina feather - how to
Wide leg pants are a super stylish staple piece that shouldn’t be missing from your wardrobe – even if you are a more casual person. But I bet you’ve heard that before, and didn’t really took it into consideration! But the fact with this type of pants is that you should consider them as classics – they will make you shine at the office but also look ‘so damn’ cool’ at a cocktail event.

In search for a really, really wide pair – that should prove all my Pro’s I found these well cut, sexy red, pants from Romanian designer Alexandra Calafeteanu which I simply love.

You may find this power piece hard to wear in the beginning, but after you’ve put them on, you will easily change your mind.

Wide leg pants with high waist are perfect for those of us who want elongated legs (Like…everybody who is not 1,90 cm tall!) but also for those who want to hide legs imperfections, want to accentuate their waist, or equilibrate an inverted triangle body type. But no matter your body type, you can wear different styles of wide leg pants to look great in your skin. Like if you have a triangle type body shape – wear them straight, not super-wide or flared/ if you are apple shaped – wear them as simple as possible, straight and in a light fabric like linen / if you are hourglass shaped – lucky you! you can wear them anyway you like just remember to put an accent on the waist. (Find out more about your body shape here!)

First of all, choose a very long pair and wear them with high heels, to create the illusion that all that height it’s yours naturally. Let the shoes covered – if the point of your shoe is visible it is more than enough. I know, you may walk on their hem occasionally, but just take good care where you’re stepping and wash the hem after wearing them – and you will be all right.

Wear them with something more body fitting on top, as I did here with this bustier top . I added the vest for a more masculine vibe, but you can also wear them with an easy-breezy feminine shirt, with a sensuous lace top or with a relaxed loose tee, but always tucked in. A look that I also love is high waisted wide leg pants with a cropped sweater, but when we took these photos the weather wasn’t so chilly yet. But that’s a look to keep in mind.

What about you? How do you like your wide legged pants?

Pantalonii largi sunt o piesa super stylish ce nu ar trebui sa lipseasca din garderoba voastra. Dar, cah! De cate ori nu ati mai auzit asta si nu v-ati lasat convinse?!  Si totusi, ar trebui sa-I considerati parte din trupa clasicelor – stiti? Genul ala de haina care te face sa stralucesti la birou, dar si sa arati ‘foarte cool’ la o petrecere cocktail.

In cautarea unor pantaloni cu adevarat largi – cu care sa pot sa punctez punctele forte, i-am gasit pe acestia de la designerul roman Alexandra Calafeteanu si m-am indragostit imediat de ei.

Chiar daca la inceput vor parea greu de imbracat – nu va lasati impresionate de grandoarea lor – odata imbracati veti realiza ca sunt un must de sezon cu care va veti face usor remarcate.

Pantalonii largi cu talia inalta sunt perfecti pentru acelea dintre noi care vrem sa cream iluzia unor picioare mai lungi, dar si pentru cele care vor sa ascunda mici imperfectiuni ale picioarelor, care vor sa isi accentueze talia sau sa echilibreze optic o silueta para. Dar stai linistita, poti purta acest model de pantaloni indiferent de silueta.  De exemplu, daca ai silueta para – poarta o pereche de pantaloni largi, drepti, nu foarte evazati/ daca ai silueta mar – poarta un model cat mai simplu, drept si dintr-un material usor / daca ai silueta clepsidra – esti norocoasa! Acesti pantaloni vor arata foarte bine pe tine atata timp cat accentuezi talia. (Daca ai nevoie de putin ajutor sa identifici ce tip de silueta ai, verifica aici.)

Atunci cand ii cumperi,  probeaza-i cu tocuri in picioare sau stai pe varfuri. Ar trebui sa iti acopere tocurile si sa lase la vedere doar  varfurile pantofilor. Vei crea acea iluzie de cm in plus in inaltime, pe care ti-o doresti atat de mult.

Poarta-i cu ceva mai mulat in partea de sus a corpului – cum ar fi un top din dantela, cu o camasa diafana sau cu un tricou lejer, dar bagat in interior. Un pulover scurt este iarasi o alternativa foarte buna pentru pantalonii cu talie inalta.

Voi cum ati purta pantalonii largi cu talie inalta?
