Your Most Stylish Friends Will Soon Be Wearing These Cool Gaucho Pants

You’ve probably mastered styling your skinny jeans, but there’s another (somewhat trickier) pant style we’ve been seeing fashion girls wear. We’re talking about gaucho pants. These trousers might not sound “cool” at first, but we promise you’ll want to wear them. They check all the boxes for the season’s trends—cropped, wide-leg, high-waisted—and are surprisingly versatile and flattering. On top of that, they can also be worn year-round, depending on how you style them.

To figure out the best ways to wear them, we looked to street style stars and learned a few key tips. Olivia Palermo wore hers with a statement top with voluminous sleeves—half tucked into her pants— and the two pieces struck the perfect balance of proportions. Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert adopted the same styling trick, adding a balloon-sleeve top to her look but also layering a wide belt to define her waist. Their simple styling ideas prove the pants are easier to wear than you might think. Want to see how other street style stars are styling the tricky pants?
