Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I haven’t worn a pair of wide leg pants in quite some time, but I’m glad that I tried them again! I definitely felt like they looked best with heels, as opposed to flats, or they would have completely covered my feet. If you haven’t tried wide leg pants in a bit, it’s definitely worth giving them another go. As with most fashion, this style was “in,” then “out,” and then back “in.” …why not just wear what you love?

2) I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, you can definitely thrift a suit! It’s not the easiest task, but most thrift stores have a lot of suits and blazers. I try on various sizes in suits, since you never really know the sizing. My best advice is to look through all of the suits and blazers in all sizes, and definitely try on anything that looks as though it may fit. 

Anyone else loving the wide leg trend? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
