Monday Must: Wide Leg Pants

Ok, I may be a tad late on this trend but bear with me. Being a pear shape I've always had this fear of adding more visual weight to my bottom half, hence avoiding wide leg pants for weeks. Until last week, I was at the GapXGQ event and finally had some time to browse when I spotted them; my next it pant. Soft denim, black and wide cropped jeans. I figured why not and tried them on only to fall madly in love with them. Needless to say I've been wearing them non-stop and now am searching for more wide leg pants! I paired these Gap pants with a thrifted Chicago Bulls tee - I'm truly counting down the days until NBA is back and I can see Jimmy Butler in all his glory. Since the weather is unpredictable I threw on a leather jacket from Zara and converse to complete the easy look. 

If you haven't tried wide leg pants I definitely suggest you do - especially if you're pear shaped! Surprisingly they slim down the hip and thigh giving you a straight line that as most of you know is very unfamiliar when it comes to pants. Here's a few of my favourites that you should add to your shopping list!
