How to Look Cool in Split Hem Pants

There’s a great divide going on in the country, and I’m not talking politics! Split hem pants are stirring up excitement and receiving mixed reviews. Here’s a look at this interesting new style of pants. Which camp are you in?

black split hem pants with mules

If you’ve been thinking you’d like to add a little more oomph to your style then split-leg pants may be the way to go. I bought this pair of skinny knit pants that are slit up the side to go with this cute leopard tie top, and I’m loving the look.  


What to Wear with split hem pants

Recently I’ve been wearing my split-hem pants with this pretty cross front blouse. I toss this cozy ruana on top and I have a chic modern look that’s a bit edgy too.  I must admit these pants surprised me. They did seem a touch wild at first,  but the more I wear them, the more I love them. Be sure to wear cute booties , mules, or shoes that show off your ankle for maximum effect.

Here are a few more styles of split hem pants that are trending right now.


Split Hem Jeans

They say skinny jeans are slowly been replaced by straight leg jeans. But what about trying a pair of slit hem straight legs just for fun?  The cool white jeans, slit right up the middle, have an rock and roll vibe. They look super sexy if you wear them long  with a pair of high heels (if you can still wear heels!) Or, just slip on a pair of cute flat sandals for a more boho babe look.

Split Hem Leggings

If you love leggings but are getting tired of the same old look, then switch things up with a pair of split hem leggings. It’s a small change but it makes a big difference and will give your leggings outfit a very modern look.

Try split hem leggings with a long tunic sweater or shirt, a pair of slides, and some classy accessories. Black and white is always a chic color combo.

Slit Hem Cropped Flare Jeans

Cropped flare jeans are super popular at the moment, and I found this pair with a split hem at the sides. It’s hard to see here, so click the shop link below to get the full picture.

The slits on the flare legs kind of give these jeans a nautical vibe. If you want something different, casual, and relaxed, then these cute cropped flare jeans with a pretty floral or striped top and a pair of rope wedges is a great summer look.
