Everlane is one of my tried and true, go-to brands, always. I love their easy tees and tanks, and I’m a big fan of their shoes too (I have these and these!). I also love the culture of the brand – you can read more about them here.

While I have a few pairs of Everlane jeans, I’ve never tried any of the other pant styles. I’ve been eyeing the wide leg chinos for a while and finally got my hands on a pair a few weeks ago! They’re a bit out of my comfort zone, but once I put them on, I was in love!

How to Style Everlane Wide Leg Chinos

Today I wanted to share a few tips on styling the wide leg chinos since they’re quite the departure from standard skinny jeans.

I love the rise of the Everlane chinos – they’re super high wasted. I prefer high waisted pants. These in particular suck everything in and hit right at the smallest part of my waist. I wanted to highlight the high-waist rise, so I paired the pants with my never fail button-up shirt. I left a few buttons unbutton and knotted the ends so that the shirt hit right at the waistband of the chinos.

The key to styling wide leg chinos is to balance out the oversized look of them with something more fitted and/or tailored up top. You can see how I styled them by tucking in a fitted tank here!

For shoes, I opted for flats here since I wanted a more casual vibe. I’m not that tall, 5’4″ for reference. Yes, wearing a bit of a wedge or heel would help elongate my legs a bit. But I wanted to show you that the wide leg chinos can be paired with flats without completely making you look stubby.

I chose these Madewell lace up sandals since they have a “barely there” look. This way, there’s more skin showing and my shoes don’t cut me off right where the chinos hit at my ankles.

I love the wide leg as it makes the pants super breathable for springtime! Lastly, I threw on a blush pink headband and grabbed a structured bag to finish off the look!
