I’ve always heard “Petites shouldn’t wear wide leg pants, because it overwhelms the petite frame”. NEWS FLASH! You can totally pull it off by creating some balance. If the pants are oversized, I would suggest wearing a fitted top to create a balance with the proportions. Also, going for a high rise will help accentuate your smallest area and will create an illusion of longer legs… be careful because if the rise is too high, it could make you look like you have no torso….Its all about balance!

What I wore to the office!
These high rise wide leg pants are currently 40% off and are from Banana Republic in the color sand dune beige. The top is from ASOS (they have a Petite Line too!), the bag is a black Tory Burch tote, and the shoes are Stuart Weitzman nudist heels. Literally felt like I was wearing pajamas to work.
What I wore over the weekend!
The pants are on sale right now from Abercrombie & Fitch, they are the high rise wide leg jean in 25 Short. I paired with it a fitted forest green top from Old Navy, my cognac Tory Burch York tote and Tory Burch Miller sandals. Another easy and minimal comfy outfit.
I’d love to know if your into the wide leg trend this year…
