If there are days when the thought of squeezing into your ultra-tight skinny jeans is just too much to bear, then the wide-leg pant makes for the perfect alternative. Since Chloe and Proenza Schouler sent wide-leg pants down the runway last year, the look has garnered popularity, exploding onto the street style scene. The silhouette exudes sophistication and class; it flatters most body types and comes with the added bonus of comfort and practicality. Pare it down with a casual tee or tank during the day or ramp it up with a delicate silk blouse for a night out.

A variation to this trend and one that has gained much momentum on the streets is the high-slit, wide-leg pant. If you are willing to dare, the sexier cousin of the wide-leg pant makes for a sassier option. For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, summer is fast approaching, it’s time to get out those pins and flirt with this trend. Jess Gong, the fashion savvy blogger behind the fashion, travel and lifestyle blog Aile and Dee, shows us how to work these trousers. I love how she has combined her high-slit, wide-leg pants with a sheer tank and strappy heels. The balance between sporty and chic is just right, there’s a casual elegance radiating from her look.
