Wide leg, slim pants have been a staple in Asia for years. This spring / summer also sees them becoming a European staple. So much so that now is the time to have a few pairs in your wardrobe. You won’t regret it because they are super easy to style (more about that below), comfortable and chic all in one.

  1. Matchy, matchy

It’s easy to avoid wearing the matching top and bottom when it comes to busy prints like this. Yet, in fact 9 out of 10 times they look cute together and the one combination you really can’t go wrong with.

In fact, worn correctly, this jumpsuit looks like a jumpsuit.

Make sure to tuck in just so the top looks floaty while adding a bit of shape.

2. With a simple shirt

A simple tie-front shirt breaks up the patterned look adding a bit of chic.

Tying the shirt at the front means you don’t have to worry about it, which makes the pants look bulkier.

3. Worn with a shirt dress

This combination doesn’t just work like magic. You need to carefully cinch the dress at the waist, opening all other buttons. Then, under the waistband, pull the sides apart slightly to make sure the pants are also visible.
