The Madison Jacket Worn With Trendy Wide Leg Pants
I am not sure about you, but I have been living in skinny jeans (blue and black) and more recently skinny faux leather leggings for the last couple of fall seasons. Skinny pants have held court for years and while a slim leg will never go out of style, a wider leg trouser can be a nice change. I don’t wear them all the time but I have always liked wider leg trousers for the comfort and the style, when I buy a nice pair, I tend to keep going back to them on a regular basis. They are more difficult to wear for most women especially if you are not tall. Even though I am 5’4” which is average, most of the time I wear mine with heels. So If you are shorter like me, I would suggest you always wear wide leg pants with heels and a shorter, more fitted jacket. If you are taller, it is not such a problem as they are a lot easier to wear and you can get away with wearing them with flat shoes and longer jackets.
Last week, I was meeting a client and I wanted to wear our Madison menswear inspired women’s jacket. So instead of running to my usual favorite skinny pant (which I know would look great with it), I chose to wear it with my all-time favorite pair of wide leg pants. I have had these D&G pant for years and I never get tired of wearing them. They are a wider leg in the bottom but tapered in the middle so it makes them easier to wear. I paired it with a new graphic Zara top I recently bought (the link is below) and our Madison jacket which for me is a classic piece and so easy to wear with anything. I love folding the sleeves to show the stripe lining and cinching my sleeves up for a more casual laid back look. Normally I always like a pop of color for my shoes or bag but this time I just wanted to stay in black, white and grey tones, keeping it simple.
What do you think of this look, and are you wearing wide leg trousers this fall?
