Here’s the thing about wide-leg pants

Bomber, Forever 21; Shirt, H&M; Long-sleeved tee you can't see, Envy; Pants, Express; Belt, my husband's; Knee-high boots, Shoe Carnival

It’s hard for me to wear wide-leg pants for a couple of reasons, namely

1. I’m 5′ 3” and I don’t think they are at all flattering
2. I’m a bike commuter and these shits get caught in my chain like crazy

I’m willing to give this pair a few chances, namely because I found them while thrifting and they are warm. The warmth is a huge plus. Finding the balance between overdressing and underdressing was a huge challenge today because it’s the coldest weather I’ve seen since I started biking to work again. I decided to layer two light shirts under my leather bomber with these heavy pants, knee-high boots and some heavy socks. I was perfectly warm during the whole commute and perfectly comfortable at the office, where the heat hasn’t been turned on yet.

    Another fabulous outfit! Some ankle biters from Clunks will keep those wide-leg pants wrapped in tightly and out of your chain, all for about $2.50/apiece. That jacket rocks!!

      Thanks! I ended up using one of the ponytail holders that is perpetually around my wrist to tame my pants.
