Cubicle to Cocktails - Wide Leg Trouser Edition

Hello all!

Today's edition of Cubicle to Cocktails features wide leg trousers and reptile print pumps. I'm a fan of wide leg trousers, but I also understand that they don't look great on everyone. That being said, you can work with the width and cut to make it work for you. I'm vertically challenged, so I make sure that my pants are a bit more fitted in the hip and thigh so I don't look like I'm trying to wear big boy pants.

If you're on the tall side, you can be a bit more liberal with your width, as your height will save ya. As for you curvier girls, wide leg trousers can look super on you too, just make sure they fit well in the waist and hip, you want to show some shape so your curves aren't drowning in the pants.

So, here we are - what do you think? I'm also seeing a ton of corsets coming out and I think they look amazing under jackets or belted with wide leg pants - it's a nice juxtaposition.

Give a little click to the ShopStyle set below to check out the looks and let me know what you think!

Luv this post! I especially like the way you paired greys with pastels, and added hints of red. Sadly, I'm on the tall side and I usually find that wide leg trousers look great on everyone else but me :(

I have a really cute pair of wide leg banana republic jeans in that dark blue that basically goes with everything, and I can wear them A LOT. I took a bunch of pictures at my 3 yr old daughter's ballet class at the beginning of December, for parent day. I got home and looked at the pictures...I'm pretty sure I threw up in my mouth when I realized how effing fat and WIDE I looked in them. I went on a diet, lost 14 lbs, and now they don't fit and are hidden in the back of my closet.
So thank you, wide leg trouser cut dark blue jeans for making me realize I was not meant to wear that style. EVER.

Obsessionista-thanks! I envy your height-I have a feeling there are so wide leg trousers that look great on you!

Heather-Lady, we all know you're in great shape...and as always, your commentary cracks me up.

FFM-Thank you! I think the right cut of wide leg trousers really do work for most women...it's finding the right cut and fit that can be a bit challenging!
