If you’re looking for a great pair of pants that work well in the summer and don’t make you too hot, these wide-leg pants from Spanx are a great choice. Here’s how to wear these cropped wide-leg pants in the summer.
In the last few years, I’ve become obsessed with cropped, wide-leg pants. They’re a great style that looks good on so many women, and they’re a good alternative to shorts or capris (please don’t wear capris that hit right below your knee) in the summer.
I’ve shared about my all time favorite cropped wide leg pants from Anthropologie (and these similar more affordable ones), but these SPANX CROPPED WIDE LEG PANTS are also so fantastic. The waistband is really soft and comfortable, with a built in panel to hold everything in without being uncomfortable or squeezing, and they come in regular, petite, and tall, and are available in XS-3X.
I wear the XS – regular length. If you’re in between sizes, I’d recommend sizing UP.
Here are some examples of how to wear my favorite Spanx pants in the summer!
1. Dress them up.
These are fantastic pants for dressing up a bit for the office or if you’re a teacher and looking for a good outfit on a hot school day. They’re so incredibly comfortable with the soft waistband, and they look amazing with a short sleeve blouse or a button up and a pair of summer heels. Of course you could wear flats and heels with them too!
2. Back to basics
I think these pants are so cute with anything, but with a plain white tee they’re perfect and super casual for a hot summer day. Add a baseball hat and sandals and you’re ready to go for a summer weekend!
3. Add a little print
This is one of my favorite ways to wear these pants. A striped tee like this is classic and classy and just a little better than basic. You could do sneakers or flats with this outfit, but I chose some simple sandals for summer to stay as cool as possible.
4. A graphic tee is a cute, casual option!
Graphic tees sometimes feel a little too juvenile for me, but with these pants, I think it totally works because the pants are a little more elevated. This would be a great teacher outfit with a school shirt! Just add some cute flats or sneakers.
But for summer, this graphic tee with some chic sandals is a great summer outfit.
I hope this helps you style these fantastic pants for the summer!
