What to wear with slouchy pants


Brilliant question from a client:

How do I wear slouchy pants the right way? What tops should I wear with? Tucked in or out?

Slouchy pants have a relaxed, billowy style that tapers near the ankle. They are often pleated in front, but don’t have to be. A harem is a type of slouchy pant, but there are other kinds as well that don’t resemble adult diapers.

I love this style of pant, and find it to be a great alternative to skinnies. However, you have to know what to pair it with or you’ll run the risk of resembling a shapeless sack. Not fun for anyone.

Since slouchy pants are fuller in the hips and thighs and smaller at the waist, you’ll want to team with a top that doesn’t hide that smallest part (the waist). Either wear your tops tucked in to the pants or opt for tops with a higher hem. High-low hemmed tops are also a good option as they show off the front waist of the pants but still offer some butt coverage.

You can also top off with a blazer, which offers a modern take on the suit. Just make sure the blazer falls at or just below the waist.

As for shoes, opt for something sexier in order to balance the not necessarily sexy feel of baggy pants. Classic pumps are good for the office as long as they show off some skin on the top of the foot. And for a night out, slip on edgier strappy heels!
