The #1 Trick to Pulling off Wide Leg Trousers

In the debate of skinny versus wide-leg pants, we’d have to guess that Victoria Beckham doesn’t choose a side. Instead, the designer and street style star, like many experimental fashion icons we know, likes to play around with both. And undoubtedly, when Beckham wants to go bold, she commits 110 per cent. Case in point: the wide-leg pants she's been seen wearing on more than one occasion. 

We've figured out the reason her looks never appear overwhelming. It has to do with the length of her trousers. Because the hem of her pants falls to the floor, the entire ensemble lengthens her 5'4" frame. Paired with a heel and ultimately, it's a completely flattering look from head to toe.
