Wide-leg pants have started making their comeback and I’m loving all of the recent workwear options popping up! I’m sharing how to style this nude colored wide-leg cropped pants outfit for work. Wide-leg cropped pants can be tricky but if you keep a few things in mind, you can make them work. This pair is very affordable and good quality for only $55. I love the fabric of these and it steams beautifully. I’m 5’3 for reference and the length is perfect! It’s about an inch or two above my ankle, which is such a chic length. You’re sure to be comfortable in this wide leg cropped pants outfit for work since it’s lightweight and moves with you.
Fit & Length
The most important thing when it comes to any piece of clothing is the fit. If this is off, the piece could look completely wrong on you and ruin your outfit. These are high-waisted, which helps with the cropped length so your legs don’t look stubby. Since these are wide-leg, you want the fit to be just right, not too tight or too loose. Going in either direction could really take these pants from something chic to something shabby. My personal preference is for wide-leg pants to be seen as pants and not exactly a skirt. If the pant legs are clear when you’re standing comfortably, you’re good. If the pant legs are really starting to gather and flow like a full skirt, you should probably put it back.
I cannot stress enough the importance of finding a good tailor. I have taken countless items to a tailor to get them to fit just right. When you buy clothes, you should be adding them into your wardrobe for years. If you find a piece you love but a few things are off, taking them to a tailor could be the answer. I grew up with a Mom who worked as a seamstress and in my mind, anything can be altered. This not only led to a healthy mindset in the dressing room (I never think something is wrong with my body, I think the garment needs to be altered instead) but not passing up on true gems! I remember seeing a cocktail dress I adored. It had an exquisite chiffon and organza petal skirt but was a size 6 or 8. I took it to a tailor and she actually had to redo the entire petal skirt to bring the dress down to a size 0. However, that dress was a favorite of mine and I got so many compliments!
Mixing & Matching
What it comes to styling your wide-leg cropped pants outfit for work, you want to think of staple pieces. The wide-leg pants are already serving as the “trendy” or statement piece of your outfit. Everything else should be more classic so you don’t overwhelm your frame or look out of place in the office. This satin cowl neck blouse is from the Nordstrom sale and such a great wardrobe staple. It comes in four colors and the styling possibilities are endless. I love tucking it into these pants for a chic summer look.
For fall or winter style with a cashmere turtleneck and booties for warmth. Since the pants are neutral, you can play around with a monochromatic look or throw in some color. I love spending some time on the weekends just playing with the pieces in my closet. Often times, you really have to just try things on in front of a mirror and test it out You might surprise yourself with the outfits you can come up with1
