Wide leg pants are on trend for Spring but they have been trending in my closet for a couple of years now when I found vintage plaid pants at Savers during a Black Friday sale. I don't wear a lot of obviously 70s clothes but the high waist just spoke to me.
When I tried the pants on they did everything I wanted them to do. Lengthened my leg, accentuated my waist and made my butt look bigger than it is. Hey hey hey. They also have the added benefit of not having a super long length and they're washable. Oh 70s pants, you did that.
This is my first time daring to pair the pants with anything other than black. As I was pulling clothes out of the clean laundry pile in search of something to wear, I spotted my elbow patch sweater from cheap and trendy store. I could have stuck with jeans but putting on the plaid pants was a lot more fun.
The bright pastel colors felt very springy and perfectly matched the balmy weather and blue skies of today. The touches of grey on the elbow patches and my boots match the dirty snow and muddy puddles everywhere. Definitely not what I was going for but it happens.
