Wide leg pants are literally the most comfortable pants out there ever invented. They are super trendy and pretty much everyone appreciates and loves a good wide leg pant. As a style conscious Muslim woman, it is usually a struggle trying to stay trendy while also being completely covered, because most of the clothes that are really in fashion are not exactly the most covered type of clothing. Which means as a Muslim, wearing anything fashionable means you have to layer your outfits and you really have to be good at it too.
However, when it comes to wide leg pants, that’s not really the case, it’s the best thing that ever happen to a Muslim girl. Wide leg pants are very loose, so when you wear them, they don’t hug your body like most other pants do, which means it doesn’t show your body form. Alongside that, it is also really trendy and in fashion, talk about a match made in heaven.
Here are a few different ways you could style your wide leg pants as a Muslim woman. This is something that can help you, whether you are a professional, or you are just starting out in this modest fashion thing. It will help you spike up some ideas on how you could style them with items from your wardrobe.
1. Plain Top
A plain top is definitely one of the most easiest ways to style wide leg pants. You can tuck it in completely or tuck it in halfway to give your outfit that edgy look. You can also not tuck in at all, and that would give you a more casual look. Depending on what look you are going for, you can wear your top however you like. Get your wide leg pants here.
2. Plain top + Kimono/Jacket
Most of the plain tops are actually body hug tops, which means it might be a little tight and would end up making your body shape more visible than you would want it to be. Therefore, wearing a kimono or a jacket over your outfit will come in handy. Usually wide leg pants are perfect for hot weather, so I would suggest you throw on a kimono because they are typically lightweight. A good option as well is a sleeveless kimono over your outfit, to help you cover up your body without the extra fabric around the arm, depending on how hot it is, and if the inner top is long sleeve or not.

3. Button down Shirt
Wearing a button down shirt over wide leg pants is so fashionable. It’s a little bit of a formal look, which means this is an outfit you can totally wear to work or school or a meeting. It gives you that girl boss vibe and because wide leg pants are mostly high waist, it makes you appear taller and elegant. You can tuck in the shirt to give you a well formal look. Another way you can wear a button down shirt over wide leg pants is to not tuck it in, but if you are choosing to not tuck it in, make sure the shirt is knee-length or almost knee-length. You also need to make sure that the pant doesn’t have any extra details, like ruffles or fringe, because with a long loose top, it would just make the entire outfit look tacky.
4. Loose knee-length top
A long loose knee-length top is a great way to style wide leg pants. It gives you that maximum coverage. The trick here is to make sure that the wide leg pant isn’t too flared and doesn’t have a lot of extra details on it. The top can be patterned or plain, it doesn’t really matter it will still go well. You can purchase your wide leg pants here.
