WHAT I WORE -> TOP, WIDE LEG PANTS, SANDALS, EARRINGS, BANGLES, STATEMENT RING, SILK SCARF: (c/o) Ann Taylor

Doesn’t matter if you’re going to work or struttin’ your stuff down Worth Ave., a pair of wide leg pants work for all occasions. Intimidated to try it? Don’t be. Think you’re too short? Newsflash: I’m 5’2. It’s a trend that works for every body type. But there’s a catch. Hint: It’s all about the shoe, honey.

I stand by the rule that you can pull off any silhouette, if it’s balanced. Wearing a heel with wide leg pants is a must. It elongates the leg, which is key, especially for petite ladies like yours truly. Try these sandals from Ann Taylor.

To show my waistline and minimize excess bulk + fabric, I half-tucked in my off-the-shoulder top. It’s chic and super easy to style. (Cue: Katherine Hepburn and Jackie O) You can wear this top with a blazer (during the day) and take it off (at night) for after-hour drinks. #winwin

A mix of gold bangles, a jewel-encrusted ring and statement earrings add glam!

And a silk scarf to finish the look. (You guys know how much I love scarves.)

Still unsure if you should buy a pair of wide leg pants? Don’t be. Just do it. I promise, they’ll become your new best friend! Shop today’s look from Ann Taylor below (they’re killing it lately!).
