Quintessential Australian Summers call for a wardrobe that embraces easy breezy dressing and there is a certain allure that is carried by pieces that go swish in the night and keep you cool in the heat of the day. For most of us, the holy grail of dressing in the heat has been found in light, fluid, floaty dresses and airy voluminous skirts, but if you are feeling “maxed out” by the constancy of the maxi, there may be another love on the horizon.
The wide leg pant.
Championed on the streets during SS15 fashion weeks and a favourite amongst designers, wider legs are reminiscent of the 70’s inspired design that was impossible to ignore as a recurring theme of the Ready-to-wear collections.
With a strong nod to the movement of free spirited style, designers captured the vibe and created undeniably chic modern pieces that could be effortlessly transported from the runway to our everyday, and albeit a rare combination, in comfort and style. Now that’s a duo we all want to be a part of when the temperature hits 40 degrees in the shade!
The right pair can be a great alternative to a dress for a special occasion, and the perfect transitional piece taking you from the office to Friday night drinks with a quick change of accessories. To create balance, consider your proportions. Lower waisted pants are perfected with this seasons crop and for the more classically inspired, you can’t go wrong with a button down or silk blouse. For an updated off duty look, why not try a pair in denim and style back with a simple white tee?
It’s time to take a walk on the wide side xo
