8 Wide-Leg Pants We'll Be Wearing All Season Long
Wide-leg pants are all the rage right now, and we are here for it. Despite their relaxed fit, they're endlessly flattering and surprisingly polished-looking. Plus, they're comfortable, breezily taking you from work to errands to a night out. Depending on their material and how you wear them, they can be super casual (paired with sneakers and a tee) or fancy (with a cute crop and stilettos).
Below, you'll find the wide-leg pants we've been coveting, from high-waisted paper-bag pants to the softest jeans to tropical-print culottes. Best bet you'll see us wearing these on repeat all season long.
Banana Republic Wide-Leg Silk Pant
Made from silk charmeuse, these eye-catching pants ($320) are as comfortable as they are chic. We love that they're simple to dress up for more formal events. All you need is a blouse — or perhaps the matching cami — and some heels for a perfect ensemble for all sorts of summer celebrations. The best part: they're machine washable. Wear them, wash them, repeat.
Wilfred Effortless Linen Pant
These wide-leg linen pants ($148) deliver on their name: they're totally effortless. Pair them with some mules and a comfy tee, and you'll keep the vibe going while looking effortlessly cool, whether you're running errands, catching up with friends, or hopping on a plane to somewhere fabulous. Plus, they come in 12 different colors.
Banana Republic Tencel-Linen Pant
With an elastic waist and made from a mixture of super-soft Tencel and lightweight linen, these wide-leg pants ($100) are the wardrobe staple you'll want to wear with a tee and flats all weekend and then during the week with a cami and a blazer. They're comfortable, versatile, and stylish — perfect for everyday wear. You can't ask for much more than that.
Andres Otalora Abajero Tropical-Print Linen Wide-Leg Pants
For a tropical getaway, you'll want to pack these striking pants ($525) that exude resort style. We love the vibrant animal print, the tassel-tipped waist tie, and of course the relaxed fit. Wear them with a cute tee or billowy blouse and a pair of espadrilles for a vacation look that'll turn heads no matter where you go.
Banana Republic Tencel-Linen Tuxedo Pant
Not all wide-leg pants are casual. These tuxedo-style pants ($120) have both a relaxed and a tailored fit, making them perfect for a day at the office or out for a special celebration. Elongate the ensemble with some pumps and a silk blouse, and pop on a matching vest or blazer for an ultrapolished and professional look.
Savannah Morrow Hali Pleated Silk-Bamboo Wide-Leg Pants
These coastal-inspired pants ($350) have beach vacation written all over them. Made from luxurious silk and bamboo, they're soft and breathable, perfect for barefoot walks in the sand and late-night cocktails overlooking the water. Available in a creamy neutral or burnt orange, they'll go well with just about any top you have, though you could also pick up the matching crop top for a set you'll wear (and love to wear) again and again.
Banana Republic Wide-Leg Paperbag Pant
We love the exaggerated wide-leg silhouette of these paper-bag pants ($130). And while the leg fit is relaxed, the high cinched waist ensures a flattering look, whether you pair them with a tucked-in tee or a linen button-down. What's more, they come in three colors: a transitional cream, a vibrant blue, and, our favorite, a playful yellow for summery days in the sun.
Matthew Bruch High-Rise Wide-Leg Pants
A sky-high rise and cinched waist give these wide-leg pants ($495) lots of attitude (and a super-flattering silhouette). Cut from chambray cotton, they have all the versatility of your favorite jeans with the touchable comfort of a worn-in tee. Whether you wear them with a crop top and flats or a blouse and heels, they'll give you a stylish edge that's cool enough for city streets and comfortable enough for, well, every day.
