Have you jumped right into the cropped wide-leg trend, or is it taking longer than you thought? This latest pants trend has going gangbusters, and I’ve found a way to make wearing this style easy. Today I’m partnering with @Spanx to share their new Stretch Twill Wide Leg Pants!
Cropped Wide-Leg Pants are a Challenge!
I’m just going to say it. Cropped wide-leg pants aren’t the easiest thing in the world to wear. The wider leg, the shorter hemline can scare you into thinking you could never pull these off without looking short and squat. But in reality, that might be because you just haven’t found the right ones. These fab Spanx cropped wide legs, which look like jeans but fit like leggings, convinced me otherwise.
These Sculpt Your Figure
Spanx is famous for its shapewear and leggings, and these new pants are an extension of those. They have the same excellent stretch fit technology that sculpts your figure, holds all the flabby bits in, and is super comfy.
You pull them on, no zippers or buttons, so you get that non-bulky flat front, but it looks like you are wearing pants. They’re snug across the tummy and hips and then gently widen out to elegant medium hem width (not too exaggerated like some). With these pants, you don’t get the big, square, boxy shape that so many other wide-leg pants give you.
The Length and Pant Width are Elegant
The other thing I like about these pants is that instead of ending in the middle of your calf like many cropped wide-leg pants ( they look like wide-leg capris), these end a few inches above your ankle is much more flattering.
Wear them with Wedges
I like wearing them with low wedge sandals, so I look tall and slim. A light or nude colored shoe ( I’m wearing light taupe) also helps with this, too, visually elongating your foot. I also find that a bit of height makes my ankles look lovely and delicate in these pants.
Of course, there is that stunning color! It’s like a dusty rose, but they call it mauve, and I think it’s one of the main reasons I gravitated towards these. They’re unique, although I do have my eye on their almond-colored ones. They also come in white and khaki green, so there are many choices.
Monochromatic is Classy and Slimming
I paired them with this pretty pink waffle knit sweater for an elegant and slimming monochromatic look, but they also look chic with a floral feminine summer top or sporty with a cute tee, sneakers, and crossbody bag.
When I buy Spanx, I always order a medium, which these are. The website says they run on the small side, so if you are between sizes, I will size up. Overall, these are soft, comfy, classy, body sculpting pants. I loved them. The links for this outfit including my gorgeous jewelry are below.
