They’re finally back in style, y’all! Yup that’s right, these ’80s inspired wide leg pants are all over the runway, especially in 2017 resort wear collections. I was so inspired I had to buy myself a pair and show them off in this post. Although it’s 80 degrees and pretty humid outside, these light, airy pants are perfect for summer, paired with any crop top anyone can pull off this look. Spotted in David Koma’s 2017 resort Collection were high-waisted wide leg pants paired with a edgy crop top. I thought this was a little dark for my taste but I was still so inspired by the idea of a small top and wide loose pants, almost giving a dress-like appearance, very flattering and proportional.
I replicated the same idea of this look but made it brighter and more summery and less dark and harsh with these beige wide leg pants from Ann Taylor and a halter blush crop top from Brandy Melville. I also decided to dress it up with my nude Guess pumps, styled it with a vintage Coach satchel as well as vintage nine west sunglasses.
This effortless and comfortable outfit is perfect for a lunch date, dinner date or casual stroll through town. I cannot express enough how in-style these wide leg pants are, it’s honestly in almost every collection I browsed through. They’re the perfect pant for summer, not too hot, super stylish, and throwing your hair up into a high pony totally makes the look.
Bringing back the ’80s from the runway and onto the streets of Princeton, NJ is what I’ve been focused on this summer. It really is amazing how much things are coming back into style and I think everyone needs a pair of wide leg pants in their closets this season. Get ‘em before they’re out again!
