The skinny jean is a classic, but sometimes, we want something more. Enter: the wide-leg pant. These underrated bottoms are the perfect fusion of practicality and style—which is just what we need for winter layering.
These pants may at times come with the struggle of “saggy ass,” but there are ways—9, actually—to execute the look seamlessly. Below, check out some of our favorite plays on this relaxed fit.
When it comes to this trend, length is key. A cropped cut can be restricting in style, and a longer hemline create the illusion of height. Wear with a cropped cardigan and flatform boots for a causal-but-cool look.
An updated twist on the Annie Hall aesthetic. A corduroy trouser not only fits with the rest of this season’s trends, but also has the added benefit of keeping you warm—especially when paired with a hoodie and puffer coat.
An outfit you can wear both in- and outdoors. Statement pajamas are perfect for the couch (with wool socks) and for the party (with velvet platforms).
Create a non-boring, SFW outfit by piling on prints. A striped blouse matched with a houndstooth coat is a refreshing way to stay in line with the corporate dress code.
The One-Piece Wonder
Take on the night with a wide-leg jumpsuit. An item like this calls for minimal styling: think a slingback heel and textured faux fur coat.
The Smooth Operator
For a modern play on the classic wide-leg pant, give leather a try. While we’re all used to skin-tight options, this pick actually lets you breathe. Pair with a chunky turtleneck and street style-approved sneakers.
One thing Rihanna has in common with the rest of us? She loves comfy clothing. But, there’s a fine line between properly-executed loungewear and looking sloppy. Tie your cozy ensemble together with a fitted top, relaxed pants, and the epitome of comfort: UGGs.
The Paper Bag Waist
Athletic wear has become undeniably cool. Dress up a looser-fitting track pant with a turtleneck bodysuit, a silk blouse, and some printed booties.
