The best wide leg pants to stock up on this summer
High waisted wide legs pants have made a huge come back this Summer in women’s fashion. I bought a few pairs this season as I know I’ll be living in them a lot as they’re so comfy. These wide leg pants range from designer wide leg pants (in the Outnet Sale with up to 70% off) to luxe for less styles with the added bonus that they all have pockets. What’s not to love? They’re comfortable and the high waisted wide leg pants are ever so flattering and make us petite girls look taller due to their silhouette. These trousers are in the lightest, breeziest materials and colors for Summer. I avoided linen as I wanted wide leg pants that would be great for traveling and linen isn’t. It’s a nightmare to iron so it’s not a material I ever buy.
Whats the difference between flares, palazzo pants and wide leg pants?
Flares are narrower at the knees giving them that flared effect. Palazzo pants are wide and roomy from the waist down and normally made from lightweight material that gives them their airy feel. Whereas wide legs pants are wider from the hips down and don’t get narrower at the knee, giving them a relaxed but chic look that’s more timeless and less retro. Wide leg pants are also more flattering on larger hips and thighs.
Top 5 Designer High Waisted Wide Leg Trousers in the 2021 Outnet Sale
1. Halston Women’s Wide Leg Pants
These pretty pastel pink satin trousers are belted, high waisted and have discreet pockets. The material flows beautifully and they’re so light and perfect for Summer. They’re on the dressier side and would be perfect for date night. They’re in the Outnet sale for 70% off and are selling out fast. So if you have your eye on these beauties snap them up before they’re completely gone. Sizing runs slightly large and very long so they’re great for longer legs.
2. Brunello Cucinelli cream women’s wide leg pants
These cream pleated cotton-blend twill wide-leg pants are so smart and perfectly tailored. They’d look equally chic with a crop top and blazer or simple bodysuit. They’re another Outnet sale find and make these women’s designer bottoms a steal.
3. Brunello Cucinelli white elasticated waist wide leg pants
I wouldn’t normally share 2 pants from the same designer but these white pants are too versatile, comfortable and stylish to miss. Especially while they’re on sale. The gathered satin-crepe wide-leg pants are a timeless classic that would be so comfortable yet smart to fly in or for dinners al fresco. These Bruno Cucinelli pants also have front and back pockets so you can wear them with your mini bag and have a place for your phone.
4. Forte_Forte blue satin wide-leg pants
These are the prettiest sky blue pull on pants in the silkiest satin that hang so elegantly. The elasticated waistband doesn’t look frumpy but makes them another comfortable pair of pants to invest in this summer. They also have pockets and you can machine wash them (no dry cleaning necessary). They’re in the Outnet sale for under $200 (70% off).
5. Casasola pleated beige wool wide leg pants
If you’re looking for a flattering high waisted wide leg pant to wear on cooler evenings or into Fall these are beautifully tailored trousers. They’re made in Italy and have pockets of course.
Luxe For Less High Waisted Wide Leg Summer Pants Under $100
If you’d rather save than splurge, these high waisted wide leg trousers are all under $100 and great value for money.
Zara full length pants
These are only $39.90 and besides stone (off white/cream), they also come in a in pretty sea green or black. They’re incredibly lightweight and airy for Summer as well as high waisted with pockets big enough for your phone. Sizing runs true to size and slightly long. As you can see from the photo, they will need some steaming or ironing.
Femme Luxe Off White Wide Leg Pants
These pants are also ‘stone‘ color but are darker and more of a beige than the pair from Zara. They run slightly small in the waist so if you’re unsure size up. They also come in white which I think I might have to stock up on as well as they’re on sale for under $12. Use code SPRING15 for an extra 15% off. The elasticated waist is only visible at the back (they look normal from the front), so I’m going to throw a blazer over these to make them look more expensive and hide that part.
Beige Wide-Leg Pants
These are slightly darker but I know so many of you love beige so I had to include them. They’re under $50 and have a really cute tortoise shell button fastening that makes them a little different. The tailored pleating makes them look more expensive than they are. There’s also a matching strapless crop top (sold separately) if you want the coord set to take the guess work out of what to wear with them. Crop tops work really well with wide leg pants as the pants hide the part of our stomach most of us are more self conscious about.
