Have you ever seen someone wearing a wide leg pants outfit and thought “Wow, she looks amazing!” I know I have, and before that little voice pops into your head, yes, you too can rock a wide legged pant ensemble! As modern women, we want our clothes to reflect our confidence and there’s nothing quite as liberating as wearing a good set of pants that’s both feminine and independent.
With wide leg pants being on-trend well into 2024, there is no better way to style up your wardrobe with quality pants. So, if you’re wondering what to wear with wide leg pants, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Here are our best tips for how to style wide leg pants and match your outfits with wide leg pants for 2024.
Choosing Tops for Wide Leg Pants
When it comes to creating a stylish and versatile wide leg pants outfit, choosing the right tops to wear with wide leg pants is crucial. Whether you're going for an elegant wide leg pants outfit or a more casual look, the key lies in finding the perfect balance between comfort and style.
When styling wide leg pants, a fitted top is always a good choice for those of us with wide hips as it complements the look so well. A tucked-in blouse or a tailored shirt can create a look that is casual yet polished.
For a chic black wide leg pants outfit, pair the pants with a stylish black top for a monochromatic and streamlined look. If you want a relaxed vibe, experiment with loose-fitting or flowy tops that allow for movement for a laid-back aesthetic.
When thinking about how to wear wide leg pants, keep in mind that proportion is important. A cropped top or a tucked-in tee can highlight the waist to create shape.
We always say that emphasising your curves is sexier than trying to hide them, so embrace all your feminine beauty by creating shape with your outfit!
Ideas for Picking Colours
Choosing colour can add excitement and fun to an outfit. When selecting what tops to wear with wide leg pants, there are so many ways to mix and match your look for every occasion.
While there are no strict “rules” for matching what top to wear with wide leg pants, here are some suggestions that work every time.
Create a versatile black wide leg pants outfit by pairing our luxurious Liliana Wide Leg Linen Pant with a monochromatic top. This makes a statement that’s both sophisticated and simple. This can work for a corporate outfit or for after 5 drinks.
Experimenting with neutral tones such as whites, creams, or greys can also give you a chic and refined appearance. Of course, you can infuse vibrancy and express a bolder style by opting for tops in complementary or contrasting hues, creating a visually striking contrast.
Our Camille Wide Leg Pant in Black Linen is a perfect example, where choosing a white top can take you to the beach, markets or running errands. Switching up to a black blouse can instantly transform your wide leg pants into an elevated outfit; paired with gold accessories, this will have heads turning your way, so get ready for “oohs” and “aahs” as people walk past.
When styling wide leg pants, the key is to experiment. Mix and match. Try new things! If it doesn't work, try something else. Swap out your Breezy Relaxed Tencel pants for an Adrift denim one, and flip your outfit on its head. Make sure to reflect your unique style and show personality in your outfits.
Creating an Elevated Wide Leg Pants Ensemble
Who says you can’t wear pants at a formal event? Women can be bold by creating a stunning and elegant wide leg pants outfit that will not look out of place in a sea of little black dresses.

Crafting elegant outfits with wide leg pants shouldn’t be complicated. We tell our friends that a simple Cherie Oversized Top in Satin Black with a pair of wide pants will turn heads at any formal event. Does it get any more irresistible than black satin?
