As a petite gal I usually stay far away from super wide leg pants. However, I recently polled my Instagram followers and received a number of votes for styling budget-friendly (and sometimes on-trend finds). I came across this wide-leg pair of denim at Target and couldn’t resist them or the price. So today I’m here to share how to style wide leg denim trousers as a petite woman!
First off, run don’t walk to Target. They’ve truly upped their clothing game!
Since moving a few years ago, I’m no longer near a Target that’s easy to get in and out of without sitting in traffic to get there. Because of that, I rarely, if ever shop there anymore. I had a few girlfriends tell me they had recently found some cute things at Target and was by one recently, so I decided to pop in. Suffice it to say, those girlfriends were right and this square neck top and pair of wide leg denim trousers came home with me.
Here’s my main tip for how to style wide leg denim trousers – make sure whatever top you’re wearing, gets tucked in. By tucking in your top, it not only gives a place for the eye to see some separation, but also breaks up the top and bottom of your outfit. Wide leg pants can easily overwhelm a petite frame. So by tucking in my top and wearing a belt, I’m giving myself a defined waistline, so I don’t look overwhelmed by said pants.
I will admit, after looking at these photos, I think I need to have these wide leg denim trousers hemmed an inch or two. Even with 3.5 inch heels, they still look a tad long.
It’s not often you catch me in wide-leg pants, but I really love the retro, yet updated vibe on this pair of wide leg denim trousers. Plus, the price tag is perfect for those who are looking to update their wardrobe for fall and winter without breaking the bank!
P.S., I’m obsessed with the color mustard yellow lately (last worn in this post), so I couldn’t pass up the $15 square neck top I’m wearing in this look! The top is so comfortable, with a knit back, and wears nicely. We’ll see how it holds up in the wash. I plan on washing on the delicate cycle.
