To set the scene, I’m reading my blogs. I see one by InStyle (which I love BTW) and what do you know? They have a feature on wide pants. Back on July 20 I wrote a post here letting you all know wide pants are IN. Thank God skinny pants and their cousins, leggings, are going out ……… now if the snake stuff would bite the bullet!
So here’s some awesome wide pants for you to drool over. None of these are beyond making very simply with a good wide-legged pant pattern. Style Arc has a great pant here.
This one is for stretch woven fabrics, such as crepe or a light suiting.
is my all time favorite Sailor Sue Palazzo Pant. I don’t have this pattern yet. I keep buying other patterns first so soon I will get this.
Now here’s some pictures of wide leg pants from InStyle’s gallery
Notice how all of the pants are prints. I think I could wear a print. For autumn/winter pants I’d look for a print ponte or a nicely draping wool woven. It would need to be lightweight or the pants would look odd. Heavier fabrics would work best in a tailored pant.
So there you go – I’m a fashion forecaster!
