Over 40 and Fabulous in Wide Leg Pants

It turns out I’m not the only one who has jumped on board the wide leg pants trend.

After my recent post where I showed off my new palazzo pants, I received these photos from 40+bloggers and readers who’ve also fallen in love with this look. Take a peek at how these gals confidently pull off wearing wide leg pants.

Clean and Crisp

Nothing says summer like a fresh, white pair of pants, and this season the wide leg looks modern and fabulous.

Style Blogger Annette, who you’ve met before on Fabulous After 40,  likes to wear her white linen, wide-leg pants with a tucked in shirt and a skinny belt that highlights her waist.

Heels give her some height and make her legs look long and lean, but she’s careful to keep the pants on the long side so as not to ruin the relaxed, flowing look of the pants.

Colorful and Creative

If you prefer a more playful vibe, then printed wide leg pants in vibrant colors is the way to go. Style blogger Tamera picked up this pair of neon paisley pants, by Trina Turk, during a recent visit to Palm Springs. She says they were “calling her name” and she knew she has to have them.

Tamera’s pants are a soft jersey knit with side pockets. They are the perfect length to wear with flats for a more casual look, or with a heel when you want to add some drama to your outfit.
Once she bought the pants, Tamera rediscovered a brooch necklace she had that went perfectly with her outfit.It’s made her fall in love with the necklace all over again.

To see more of Tamera’s colorful and creative pairings, stop by her blog Tamera Beardsley and also visit Tamera’s other fashion feature here on Fabulous After 40.

Cool and Confident

Here’s another wide leg option – How about a wide leg jumpsuit?

Fabulous After 40 reader Aleta shows of her summer style in a bold patterned, strapless, wide- leg jumpsuit.

Here, she’s dressed it up with a fitted, white jacket and wedge shoes to make it little more conservative. However you could also wear this jumpsuit on its own, sans jacket, and with sexy high sandals to more casual events if you wanted a fun, party look. Thanks for sharing Aleta!

  1. Nope, not for me. I loathe this look. Way too much fabric!I also just loved the print on Tamera’s outfit, but couldn’t help wishing that it was a dress instead of pants.
