Best way to wear maxi trousers (psst it involves a bit of Prada)
[dropcap]It’s[/dropcap] a relief that the reign of skinnies has come to an end and we can finally let the blood flow to our legs in a wider fit. The shape is great for the heat as they allow your limbs some breathing room, but they can seem overwhelming especially if you’re petite like me. They key to wearing wide leg trousers is balance, choosing the right style and finding complementary pieces to offset maxi tailoring. I went for classic black pants that are guaranteed to go with almost everything, and you may notice the straps on the side of the belt line that cinch in your waist, which is the best way to prevent the wider shape from overwhelming you.
I opted for a logo T-shirt but you will definitely spot me styling them with a striped shirt or printed crop top that shows just a tiny bit of midriff. Now shoes are one of the main ingredients in helping you pull off this fit and you should either look for a block heel or point toe pumps as they both elongate your legs. I picked up these Prada beauties at MFW and although the price made my eyes water, I haven’t stopped wearing them. Finally, don’t forget a top handle bag and much needed sunnies for the piercing summer sunshine.
