I can finally place my skinny jeans, mini skirts, and harem pants in the back of my closet in order to make room for the new kid in town - wide leg trousers. Perfectly in line with spring's 1970s trend, they are both intriguing and tricky to wear. Also known as palazzo pants, they can sometimes appear to be a maxi skirt due to their voluminous shape and generous leg girth. In order to balance out the volume, they're best paired with high platforms or wedges, a form fitting or tucked in top, sleek hair, and a small handbag. Above are four of my best picks, all under $110.
