We all love clothes that can do double duty, don’t we?! However, sometimes, it can be hard to break the stereotype of what we think an item of clothing should do.

I want to show you how to style a pair of wide legs pants two different ways. One for a more dressy occasion, and one for a more casual situation.


Here’s a little insight into what goes on in my head, haha. When I’m thinking about different ways to style things, I always start with the practical elements of the outfit;


  • What is the temperature like?
  • Where am I going?
  • How far do I have to walk?


So, basically, I start with the shoes.


Shoes are a great indicator of the level of dressiness of an outfit, so a real simple way to dress anything down is to start with a casual shoe (usually a trainer, or flat shoe of some description).


Then I build the rest of the outfit thinking about the answers to the above questions, while adding a bit of stylish flare of course!


To give you an example, here is how I would style this gorgeous pair of Max wide leg pants, available now!

Happy Shopping
