More often than not, when width is added to a women’s suit, it is not the recipe for the chicest of shapes. However, 70s styling is set to be big in the New Year, and when tailored properly to fit, a wide leg trouser suit can be both fashion forward and flattering, taking you from one season to the next with ease.
To add a little personality and ‘flare’ to your work wear, simply remember to abide by the following rules:
- If you decide to go wide, keep the top trim to look slim.
- Get the perfect fit on and around your hips.
- To appear more slight, enhance your height.
- Go easy on the details.
- If in doubt, rule lighter tones out.
