If there’s one thing every wardrobe needs this fall, it’s a pair of wide-leg pants. Pants have proven time and time again that they are all you need to instantly make an outfit more sophisticated. When Jennifer Lawrence wore a navy blue pair with a simple black tank top and button down, she looked effortlessly chic, as did Katie Holmes when she wore a satin black style with a basic white top and leather coat. Their looks cleverly demonstrated how basic pieces can be transformed into a stylish girl with simple, structured bottoms.
So, of course, I set out to find affordable styles to add to my wardrobe ahead of fall, because who doesn’t want a pair of pants that can transform a simple t-shirt or fall sweater into a quietly chic look? And in doing so, I discovered that seven styles are already on sale on Amazon ahead of the retailer’s Big Deal Day (including a colorful pair inspired by Martha Stewart’s bold look), with prices starting at just $19.
The Drop Wyatt Loose Pleated Pants
Right now, The Drop’s Wyatt Oversized Pleated Pants, featuring a high elastic waistband and chic pleated detailing, are 63 percent off. This style is available in two classic colors: black and brown. Shoppers write that the pants “look good with anything.” One shopper thought they were “gorgeous”, explaining that the trousers were “flowy”, “dreamy” and “very flattering”. And for another person it is “very comfortable” and “elastic”.
MakeMeChic High Waist Wide Leg Pants
The MakeMeChic pants have a slightly more tailored look with a narrower (albeit wider) leg, but retain the same flattering high waist and pleated front as The Drop. These pants are available in 26 colors and sizes from XS to 4XL (sales percentage varies by style), and shoppers say they’re the “prettiest, most expensive-looking pants” they’ve ever purchased on Amazon. Another shopper, who called the pants “comfortable” and good quality, said he was also impressed by their versatility. “They’re great for a casual or brunch look, but can also be styled for the office.”
SySea High Waist Palazzo Pants
Paper bag pants are an always flattering style that many of us know and love (even Katie Holmes recently wore a skirt version), and this SySea pair is a shopper favorite. The pick has over 3,200 perfect ratings, with a number of shoppers raving about how “comfortable and flattering” the belted trousers are. “They’re fluffy, soft, fit great and so cute,” said one fan, noting that they get “so many compliments” every time they wear them. They can be worn with anything, another shopper said, explaining that they paired the pants with ankle boots and heels, and also kept them casual with sneakers and slides.
