My current style obsession: wide leg pants. They’re ideal for the transition from summer to fall and they seem to be everywhere right now (clearly Gigi Hadid got the memo). I especially love ones with a paper bag waist. I think they can be dressed up or dressed down, and can be worn at the beach or for a night out. However, being the 5’3″ girl that I am, I can’t seem to find the perfect pair for me (so I suppose this post is more of a wish list than what I actually wear). As my friend Jenna can attest when we went shopping on Michigan Avenue, I tried on about 10 pairs of wide leg pants at Zara to no avail. They’re either way too long, or they’re cropped in a way that makes me look even shorter than I am. The struggle is real and I wish I could find a pair…. I’d be wearing them with a cute crop top and statement earrings all the time, or maybe a plain white tee and sandals for class. Check out my style inspiration below and some top picks I have my eye on. Maybe one of these will work for me? And let me know if you have any tips for finding pants if you’re short! I need ’em.
