Shopportunities: The Wider, The Better

I love wearing pants, but I always default to the same narrow-leg cut; I’d like to expand my pants wardrobe with different leg styles. Any ideas? — Janine P., Fort Myers

 

Retro, 1940s-inspired high-waisted, wide-leg pants are a 360-degree turnaround from your usual style, but they’re a great way to refresh your wardrobe. The wider the leg, the better this spring. Another wide-leg option is a jumpsuit in a sleek, black fabric. It’s the perfect addition to your wardrobe as an alternative to the little black dress.

For casual wear, opt for some stylish jogger pants—“stylish” being the operative word. Seek out brands that specialize in athleisure wear (rather than simply functional sportswear) for on-trend alternatives to weekend jeans.

And there’s no reason you can’t still wear narrow-leg pants, but update the style with a pair in a fabulous floral print—one of the season’s biggest trends.
