My favorite item of clothing for the past two months has been plus size wide leg pants. I’ve always been a skinny jeans type girl. Even when I wore plus size work pants, they were fitted to the ankle and had a skinny silhouette.
However, recently I discovered my love for wide pants. I guess I felt like wide pants weren’t made for my short, curvy figure, for a lot of reasons. The number one reason I stayed away from loose pants was because I dressed for “flattery”. This means that if it didn’t make my body contoured, I wasn’t wearing it. So you could say that wearing plus size pants like these was absolutely out of the question. Second, because I’m petite and plus size and 5’2 tall, I felt like all wide pants would look extremely baggy and long on me. But as I start to invest in higher quality pants from places like Eloquii or Universal Standard, I frequently visit a tailor to hem my pants to fit me perfectly. It was a game changer for me. Not only can I now wear loose pants, they don’t drag and they look great on my figure!
The plus size large pants that I wear …
Even though I’ve been home most of the time for a year and a half, I’ve stocked my wardrobe with loose pants that I love. I feel like I can wear these pants anywhere from the office to dinner and then to brunch with my friends. I often like to pair wide pants with a fitted crop top or a tucked-in bodysuit. For this outfit, I’m wearing Eloquii plus size wide leg pants and Eloquii plus size bustier. I haven’t made these pants for myself yet but they are on the list for my next trip. When I tell you that I bought wide pants like crazy, I am not kidding. These pants are different from most other styles I have in my closet because they are linen. They are therefore perfect for summer and the hottest days because they are very airy and light.
I imagine myself wearing this outfit on a tropical vacation while lounging at a resort, but it could also be a cute look for a day of shopping. What do you think of wide pants?

SIZE INFORMATION: I am wearing a size 18 in the wide pants and cropped top, which is my usual size, and both pieces fit perfectly. The pants are a bit long on me, especially after ironing them, but I’m also 5’2. These pants are light and not stretchy, but they are quite loose. The top is structured at the front with an elastic at the back and is ultimately very comfortable.
