Perfect wide-legged pants found! I know some of you expressed doubts about how flattering this silhouette would be on different body types and I have to say I think this particular pair would be beautiful on anyone. They make you look like you're floating on clouds when you walk. Pair 'em with a giant pair of heels and you kind of are. I love the layered sheer fabrics, because they work just as well with a casual button-down as they do with a more dressy top. Aside from a slightly questionable v-shaped waistband, these babies are really quite flawless.

  8. Those trousers are gorgeous. And I almost find the wide-leg pants are so close to being a maxi-skirt that pulling them off might not be too hard.

  19. I can't believe those pants are from modcloth; I was convinced they're vintage. I actually pulled out a pair of similar pants (in white) from my mom's closet, and you're inspiring me to wear them sooner rather than later!

  23. I have really big hips, so this shape bells out at my biggest point and then just goes straight down--not cute. Definitely better on slimmer, less hippy shapes. Super cute on you though.
