Hi, I'm Erin, and I'm a fashion stylist. I want to show you what to wear with high waisted wide leg pants. Somehow, in our butt crack exposed world, high waisted jeans and pants got a bad name. But, the reality is they are incredibly sophisticated, elongating, and a great way to balance out a bottom curvy body. Our model, Heather, is wearing a black, high waisted trouser by Alice Olivia. Now only do her legs look a mile long in these pants, but her waist looks teeny tiny because of this wide, exposed waistband. The length of the wide leg slacks is important. You want the pants to almost dust the floor and nearly cover your shoe. The only problem is, if you're petite, your torso might look a little stubby. To lengthen your upper body, wear a scoop or v-neck blouse. I would also pair the wide leg pant with a slimmer fitting top to balance out the volume on the bottom. Heather is wearing a chic leopard print silk blouse from Top Shop. She has a bold gold chain link necklace to draw attention to her face. On her feet, a pair of classic black patent pumps. Closed toe only. If you wear a peep toe, you'll ruin the long leg effect. Another option with these pants, a one button black fitted blazer. Sport this jacket, and all of a sudden you transform your trousers into a power suit.
