Move over skinny

4 April 2013

Well, it's not quite move over 'skinnies', because for most of us the skinny jean / pant has certainly made its way to the A list when it comes to our stylish 'staples'.

We are however making a plea to create room for our latest crush, 'The wide leg pant'.

While this look may be easiest for our long legged beauties to master, it is not impossible for the rest of us to be fabulously flawless in this trend.
It comes down firstly to choosing the right cut and shape for your body type (because different cuts will impact the flow of the garment and therefore your silhouette) and secondly, the attention you pay to styling the rest of your outfit.

If you are of the smaller petite kind, choose a pant that has a slimmer leg line with a subtle flare and always always wear heels!

Flat front, no side pockets, and heels are key to achieving a flawless look if you are aiming to lengthen and create the illusion of smaller hips and thighs.

Ladies blessed with the long and lean - the choice is all yours - super wide, fluid and floaty, slightly structured with a subtle flare.....whatever you try and love. 
Remain sky high with your heels or alternatively play it down with your favourite ballet flat. This is a look that is fabulous on you so have fun with it.

Follow my top 4 tips for pulling this look together, and you will be well on your way to chic....

1. Ensure the hem line of the pant is slightly touching the floor and covering your heel. Two words.. long and lean!
2. Balance the volume of the pant with a slim fitted top and/ or cropped jacket
3. Heels, heels, heels.
4. If in doubt, book a session with your stylist ;)
