4 ways to Wear Wide Legged Trousers

4 ways to wear wide legged trousers | Fake Fabulous

Each month Anna, Ann and I have been styling a classic item, and this month it's the turn of the wide legged trousers.
Classic.
Versatile.
Seasonless.

I decided to play around with mine a little today, and wear a dress over the top!
So comfortable and easy to wear.

BUT beware.....
Wearing a slouchy dress over a pair of wide trousers (especially with flat shoes) is definitely shortening, and widening, to the figure.
There is no getting away from that fact!

However, sometimes it's worth it for the comfort and ease of a looser look.
And besides, the body always looks better in motion (real life) than on film.

An interesting bib necklace and embroidered shoes added interest to this plainer look.
A classic bag finished things off nicely.

Liyana from Affordorable

Liyana is probably THE coolest blogger that I follow.
She has that 'something' that oozes style, and she is not afraid to be different.
I love her quirks!


She obviously wears a hijab, but ALL of her looks are easily copied for anyone... whether you wear one, or not.
Her full-coverage (modest) dressing is also perfect if you live in a colder climate (like me!) and need to hide a thermal layer... or two.

I love everything about this look.
The boxy boyish blazer.
The quirky clutch.
The double monk shoes....swoon.

Please check out her blog if you love quirky/cool/casual outfits.

Anna from Anna's Island Style



Anna is so very 'Anna' here!
Oodles of femininity.
Plenty of colour.
Loads of interesting textures, and accessories.

These must be THE widest wide trousers ever!
I do love a palazzo pant.
Perfect styling.

Ann from Kremb de la Kremb


Ann's wide trousers are a more manageable (and practical) width... perfect for city living.
{No trailing hemlines}
I love how she has styled them simply with on-trend checks, and that cool waist bag.
Plenty of sexiness and sass too.... wide trousers Annie-fied!

  1. What a fantastic lineup of different looks here. And you said it well - how film can't always capture the feel-good effect of an outfit in motion. I love the looseness of your dress/pants and can imagine this outfit swishing wonderfully.

  2. I looooove wide leg trousers, but I agree, they are really tough to photograph well. I find that with nearly anything that has good movement. I'd love a big bold print pair like Anna's! xx

    1. Yeah....I agree about wanting to swoosh around in Anna's floral trousers!
      Especially on a breezy day :oP

  3. I just love wide legged trousers - I own quite a few pairs. I have been considering wearing them with dresses but I haven't been brave enough to try it yet. But I will now that I've seen it works!! You look gorgeous. Love the dress btw.
    Have a great week Samantha!

    1. Give it a go Suzy... It's definitely a comfortable way to wear them.
      I think it helps that these are similar colours, but anything goes doesn't it? :o)

  4. The wide legged trouser never looked so good as we gals have show here. I love how, once again, we've all done our own thing and hopefully given our readers oodles of new style tips and ideas. I've never considered wearing a dress over them, but I surely will now!

  5. Is it odd that I'm now starting to wonder how tall you are exactly? To me, you have the kind of stature that carries any kind of clothes beautifully. My elder sister looks like she has about the same frame as you do (she's pretty tall for an Asian and she models) and I've always been in awe of how good she looks in anything she's in!

    The dress-over-pants is like so "in" now if I'm not mistaken, but I like how you've kept it so easygoing and casual that "trendy" wasn't the first thing that pop into my head! By the way, LOVE the footwear choice, I am so into floral things now! I just adore the pop of colours of the florals against the black of the flats. I went into Topshop recently and although I didn't find ant floral flats, I DID find floral boots! Not sure when I'll be wearing them though.

    I think I almost got teary-eyed reading what you said about me, Samantha. I honestly don't think of myself as cool at all but the fact that YOU think I'm cool and all those other things... Goodness, I am supremely flattered, supremely! Thank you so much, Samantha - just know that I look up to you in this blogging game <3 xo

    1. You've very welcome Liyana!
      It's all true.... you are super-cool and inspiring.
      Some people just have "it".... and often don't even realise.
      That's maybe what makes you cool?
      Anyways....enough of this gushiness, before I totally embarrass myself! LOL

      I'm 5' 5" (and a bit).... otherwise known as 5 feet 6 inches (hehehehe).... or 168cm.
      I guessed you were about the same.
      Am I right??
      It's SO hard to tell in photos isn't it?

    2. And can I just add this: I am absolutely delighted you pointed out that regardless of someone wearing a hijab or not, they could still look to my outfits for inspiration, because I always feel like that is also what I have to offer to non-hijabi readers! Thank you for that, Samantha xxxooo

    3. I love a scarf myself Liyana (they're handy to keep out the chill as well as shelter me from those rare Scottish rays) and would LOVE a rummage through your collection!
