Today, I’m going to show you how to style wide-leg pants for spring. Wide-leg pants are trending for this spring and summer, and quite honestly, they’ve been trending for quite a few seasons. They’re also a good way to mix up your wardrobe from more skinny or boot-cut pants.

Let's jump on into my elegant wide-leg pants outfits.

Casual wide-leg pants outfit

1. Dressed-up denim

First, I’m styling a pair of wide-leg jeans. Denim is so easy to dress up and dress down, so you have many options with a pair of jeans like these.

Here, I’ve paired the wide-leg jeans with a lilac long-sleeve top which is the Pantone color of the year—Very Peri—and I love this color for spring.

I’ve accessorized this look with a white belt with a gold buckle on it.

For shoes, since I’m showing you guys a spring option, I’ve opted for a pair of mules in that same purple color. I wanted to match the gorgeous color, and I also feel that the mules work perfectly with the wide-leg jeans.

I added a light layer of a denim jacket; a denim jacket is such a spring essential, and it works perfectly with these wide-leg jeans. To finish the look, I added a white quilted bag that has a gold chain to it.

2. Faux leather

For the next look, I’m wearing faux leather pants, and I wanted to show you more of an evening look. The finish of the faux leather material is what gives this look more of a dressed-up touch.

I paired the pants with a red and black printed top, and I feel like the faux-leather pants give the print a bit of a pop.

I love to accessorize with belts because they are a subtle accessory to add to your looks; here, I added a black one with gold detail. To add some pizazz, I added a pair of gold statement earrings which add a little bit of shimmer.

On my feet, I went for a pair of black booties that have a clear heel, and finishing off the look is a little black clutch.

3. High waisted 

In this next look, I’m wearing a pair of wide-leg pants in a caramel tone, and I paired them with a leopard-print top that I feel adds a nice pop of print.

There are different levels of wide-leg pants, and these ones have a very wide leg. They’re also quite long, so these are the type of pants that I need to wear with my highest heels, so here I paired the pants with a pair of nude ankle booties that have a tall heel.

The pants are also super high-waisted, and the silhouette defines my figure nicely. Lastly, I added a nude clutch with a gold chain.

4. Casual denim

Next, I’m styling another pair of wide-leg jeans in a darker wash. I’ve dressed them down a little bit for this look, very different from the first wide-leg jeans look.

For the top, I opted for a simple white long-sleeve top; I really love this top because it’s super simple, but it has a deep v-neck which adds some detail.

Since the top has that v-shaped neckline, I feel like it needed a little accessory and a double chain necklace does the job perfectly.

To finish the look off, I added a headband in yellow as I wanted to add a little pop of color. It also adds a dressed-up touch to a casual look.

Keeping it casual with footwear, I went for a pair of yellow sneakers that tie in with the headband. If it’s a little chilly, you can also throw a blazer on; blazers are easily dressed down when paired with sneakers.

This is a great comfy weekend look.

5. Bright color

These wide-leg pants are in a mustard color, which is great for spring. They are super wide on the bottom, have a lot of movement, and are very flowy. I paired them here with a nude sleeveless top.

Just like the last look, I added a layer to this outfit - a brown blazer. I love the subtle color block of the pants and blazer. I styled the blazer by buttoning it up and adding a wide belt.

The belt creates a defined waistline that balances out the wide-leg pants and is also a chic accessory.

I finished off the look with a nude headband; I feel like small details like a headband can make all the difference in your outfits. 

What shoes to wear with wide-leg pants

For footwear, I added a pair of brown loafer platform-style shoes. Platforms will be trending this season, and these platforms, believe it or not, are very comfy.
