Forget the 1990s. The 70s are the decade that are having a major fashion moment. It’s time to dig out your floppy hat and style your hair in a feathered hairdo like Farrah Fawcett. You also can’t forget about the wide-leg pants. It’s time to put away your skinny jeans and put on a pair of trousers that aren’t molded to your calves. You can take inspiration from the always flawless Amal Clooney and try a printed pair of pants or you can go for a relaxed Coachella vibe with flowy trousers.
Here are 14 pairs of wide-leg pants to swap your skinnies for:
Forget pretty pastel dresses and Easter eggs, you need a pair of pastel pants in your closet for spring. Just be careful not to spill anything on them.
If hippie florals aren’t your thing, these striped pants are a good alternative. Plus, they incorporate the popular menswear trend into your outfit.
If you refuse to wear anything other than jeans, here is a wide-leg option for you. They’re much wider than your skinnies but don’t look like you’re going to a 70s-themed party…unless you pair them with a fringed poncho.
You have been wearing tight pants for awhile, so a very wide leg could be too drastic a change for you. These slim bootcut pants are a good way to try out the trend without committing to crazy 70s flares.
There’s nothing juvenile about these soft pink tailored trousers. The dusty color makes them almost as easy to wear as a neutral.

A lot of people will wear printed tops as opposed to printed pants. Switch up your basic black pair of bottoms for a neutral check. These navy and ecru trousers could be worn with almost anything in your closet.
It may look like the model is wearing a skirt but those are actually trousers. If you want something comfy but stylish to wear to festivals, these pants are the thing.
You can’t go wrong with a classic sailor-inspired pair of wide-leg pants. If you want to pair them with a striped Breton top, go for it. If not, they’ll look good with any other slim-fitting shirt.
If you want really wide trousers, you can’t get much wider than palazzo pants. These crisp white ones have an elasticated waistband so they’ll feel as comfortable as you fave pair of PJ pants.
Embrace your inner bohemian with these feather print trousers. Boho lover Vanessa Hudgens would definitely approve of these.
These versatile red pants can work for every occasion. Pair them with a navy blazer for work and then dress them up with a sexy top and heels to go out.
You can describe you skinny pants as many things but one adjective you would probably never use to describe them is “comfortable.” These quirky zigzag pants won’t restrict the blood flow in your legs.
These are a great work-appropriate option. They have a subtle print that is as versatile as any plain black pair. They’re flowy but they don’t look like you’re drowning in excess fabric.
Who wouldn’t love a pair of bottoms that has “soft” in the title? You will never want to change into your sweatpants as soon as you get home if you already have these on.
