Ok Ladies! I’m here to help. I’ve had quite a few people ask me how I would style my new, black, wide leg, Free Label pants. (Find them here.) I modelled these beauties for their Fall campaign, fell in love, and had to buy them for myself. For the photoshoot these pants were paired with cropped style tops. The question I kept getting was “How would you and can you style the pants without a crop top?” Yes you can! Here are three easy peasy looks I styled that make these pants wearable for your every day.
One thing to note, is that I do plan on hemming the pants. For reference, I am 5’7 and I find them just a bit too long for every day.
This first outfit is one I wore last weekend for a casual dinner out with friends. I wore a shoe with a bit of a heel to help with the length. A classic tucked in striped tee, a cute hair clip, and a simple cross body bag make for an easy , laid back look. The elastic waistband meant I could eat all the Lebanese food I wanted! And I did.

This second look is a little more fashion forward but still very wearable. This gorgeous yellow colour is still going strong for Fall/Winter (and even if it wasn’t, I’d still wear it.) A great floral print looks good any time of year. Since I went with a punchy colour and a print, I kept my bag and boots simple and matchy matchy to anchor the outfit.

My third look is so simple and effortless, but totally the kind of outfit that would be my go-to in the Fall because it’s comfortable and still looks put together. This oversized sweater with the wide leg pant works because I did one thing…I tucked it in. By tucking in just the front of the sweater, it elevates the look and keeps it from looking frumpy.
