Today I am joining my pal Jennifer for our Monthly Style Over 50 Edit. Wide Leg Pants Do you Love Them or Loathe Them? Last year’s post Wide Leg Pants for Women Over 50 was one of my all-time most popular posts. That means one of two things you are intrigued by them or hate them. Let’s chat about how to wear wide-leg pants over 50 with confidence.
Why do I like wide-leg pants? They are comfortable and cool and you can dress them up or down. I can’t wear knee-length dresses (well never should have) or shorts, as I explained in this post Why are we so Secretive about Having Plastic Surgery Done? I don’t dress up often anymore (well never), and I am moving to a much warmer climate, so I
am looking for cooler more comfortable options.
Here I am going to share a few casual comfortable effortless wide-leg pant looks.
WIDE LEG PANTS DO YOU LOVE THEM OR LOATHE THEM?
Here I am wearing Bryn Walker’s linen crops (from a previous year). Mango has a reasonable similar pair here that I have been meaning to order. I love these pants. I am wearing it with one of my favorite Michael Stars tees, my Artemis Design Co slippers, a straw bag from Etsy, an old scarf and purple spiny oyster jewelry from my collection. I love the chartreuse/purple combination. FYI sorry about the hair it was windy as heck.

Here I am wearing all chambray, pants (no longer available but similar linked below), a favorite J Crew chambray shirt, a jute belt, earrings, and bracelet from Amazon, and that great Helen Kaminski hat.

In this look I am wearing wide-leg jeans from Banana (a couple of years ago, but I linked an identical pair that isn’t frayed), my favorite shine Michael Stars tee, a Kantha scarf, native American bracelets and earrings, and my Artemis design co slippers.
GET THE WIDE LEG JEAN LOOK
I love these crinkle gauze pants, they are as cool and comfortable as PJs. I am wearing them with my favorite Michael Stars shine tee, reef flip flops and a purse made by my talented friend Oralba. Oralba is from Columbia. I met her via my friend Cheryl at the Hub on Canal in New Smyrna Beach. She makes the best handmade shoes and purses. I love this bag it is reversible and so comfy to wear. You can find Oralba’s shop here. Stop by and visit her at The Hub on Canal if you are local.

Here are a few wide-leg pant looks from previous posts in case you missed them.
I love these Palazzo pants from Anthro and this Chambray shirt from Ralph Lauren. You can find the details on this outfit in this post in my post the Ultimate Spring Fashion Guide for Women over 50.
I wore this outfit (last year from Anthro) to the rehearsal dinner in Hawaii. The pants are from Farm Rio. You can find them on Ebay here. Farm Rio has similar pants here.
