New year, new silhouette: wide leg pants

Skinny jeans, cigarette pants, jeggings…at this point, nearly everyone has converted to sleek, slim pant styles. In fact, if you look into my closet, that’s all you’ll find. To be honest, they aren’t the most flattering cut for my body type, but bootcut and flare legs just haven’t felt fresh and modern. 2014 appears to be changing that, bringing with it new volume. Wide leg pant styles of all kinds–flare, bootcut, palazzo–are back! The beauty of these wider cuts, too, is that they flatter a wide range of body types, balancing broad shoulders and helping to visually whittle the waist. Although I don’t recommend packing up skinnies just yet, it’s high time to add a few wide leg pant styles to your winter and spring wardrobe.
