This SS17 Trend Is About To Get Big

By Rosalyn Kirby

Stuck on what pant shape to commit to this spring? Hint: they’re super long and resolutely roomy. We know a slim leg will never go out of style, but this season the rule is the wider (and longer) the better. And we mean XXL. Everyone from Stella McCartney to Chloé is making the case for fluid wide-leg pants, and that makes them officially in.

But how do you style such a tricky pant? If you think massive amounts of fabric can’t be flattering, think again. Make like Gigi Hadid and balance a high-waisted style with a crop top or if baring your abs isn’t your thing, tuck in a relaxed-fit shirt instead. If you're anything like us and on the shorter side, don’t let height restrictions rule you out either. Simply choose a cut-off, flared shape instead. Plus, a higher waistband will make your legs look twice as long. Win-win, right?

Now you know you don’t need model proportions to pull off spring’s billowy, flowing pants, it’s time to majorly upgrade your style with our edit below.
