OK, I will proudly admit that I am one of those women who strongly despises wearing pants. That being said, as much as I avoid wearing bottoms, wide leg pants are the trousers I reach for when pants are absolutely required. Lucky for me, wide leg pants are the new it-pants of the moment. This means move aside, skinny jeans!
The thing is, wide leg pants are perfect for the warmer months. Your legs are able to breathe and you will not be sweating while strolling the streets of your city (can you imagine not sweating while waiting for a train in the subway? Heavenly). If, like me, you are a human who dislikes butt sweat, wide leg pants are an even grander option, and infinitely airier than everyday dresses.
What's more? Wide leg pants can be dressed up or down, which gives you even more variety. From palazzo pants to culottes, there is a wide leg pant for every occasion you attend. I mean, I love dresses, but sadly you cannot wear them to all occasions. Plus, so many fashion brands are on board with this fabulous trend and have created a variety of wide leg pants in different prints and sizes.
Here are just nine wide leg trousers that are so comfy they will make you reconsider hating pants.
These paisley print pants are too good to be true. Relaxed fit, high waisted, and cropped at the ankle, these bottoms are great for the people out there who like to embrace the '70s.

When most of us think of pinstripes, we instantly think of business trousers (or baseball). Who knew that you could rock pinstripes while simply strolling the street?

6. Tie Dyed
Did you ever make your own custom tie dye shirt when you were younger? If not, no worries because these pants will make up for all of the missed tie dye moments of your childhood. These bottoms are great for fun daytime events and will carry you through the summer.

8. Ocean Blue
I don't know about you but no color is more beautiful to me than ocean blue. This is why these beautiful pants made my heart skip a beat when I first laid eyes on them. Besides the luscious ocean blue color, these pants are beyond flowy. Wearing them is like wearing pajamas in public. I guess I need to buy a pair in every color.
