I've been avoiding this trend for a while, not because I don't love the look, but because I have very distinct memories of wearing almost this exact trend in Jr. High and feeling sooooo fly. The first pair I show you below is actually vintage, and I'm pretty sure I had that exact pair. And yes, I do realize that I just dated myself.
But this summer I've been living in my loose flowy shorts (which are essentially the shorts version of this trend. God I'm addicted!) so I thought I'd give this trend a try. As it turns out, there was a reason these pants were so popular in the 90's, its like cheating and basically wearing pajamas. And looking fabulous.
So without further ado, here's how I styled them!
1. With a graphic tee and flat sandals.
This is my celfie t-shirt I DIY'd a few weeks ago! I paired it with flat gold sandals and a neutral Steve Madden bag for a really casual look.
2. With a basic black tank, hat and wedges.
You can't see them, but I have on black wedge heels with these pants, which make my legs look super long. I added my panama hat and green leather B. Makowsky cross-body bag (which I also have in red!)
3. With a solid colored tank, nude wedges and casual tote
I chose a basic tank that matched the reddish color in these pants, and a casual blue Gap canvas tote bag, with nude wedge heels (that you can't see, again)
4. With a solid colored tank, denim jacket and structured flats
This outfit is actually similar to the one above, except I swapped the heels out for nude flats, and added a white Gap denim jacket. It feels a little more polished even though the pants are super casual.
5. With a cropped sweater, boots and scarf
This is so vintage it hurts! A basic white cropped sweater, red scarf and brown boots and I could easily wear this through the fall.
6. With a big slouchy sweater and colorful tote
This is probably my favorite, because it was so dang comfy! A giant slouchy white sweater, black boots and a large tote make for a casual fall look.
I hope you had as much fun with these ideas as I did playing dress up in my new pants. Let me know how you would style them, I'm always looking for more ideas!
