Let’s be honest, gaucho pants are quite fabulous, but if you’re not careful they can definitely give off a disheveled look that can make you appear larger, especially if you are “hippy” like me.  I had to find a way to overcome this barrier because I love this style of pants so much!  They are so chic and sophisticated, and most of all comfortable.  So today I am going to share 5 tips on how to wear the gaucho style.  

 

Style TIPS  

 

1) A monochrome look will streamline the body for a sleeker appearance.  Rocking one color always makes you appear more toned and thinner overall.  

 

2) Try wearing a strappy heel or classic pumps to take this look from day to night.  Heels always give your body a natural lift.

 

3) Make sure that your gauchos are the correct length for your height.  They should fall right above your ankles.   

 

4) Avoid wearing oversized tops with this style.  You will appear unproportioned and larger.  Opt for a fitted style of shirt, and if you don’t like close fitting tops, you can always add a vest like I did.  

 

5) Have fun with color and prints!

 

Let me know how you style your wide leg or gaucho pants!

  • I hv never been able to wear gauchos but you’ve for sure inspired me to give them another try!

  • I love the look!!! I really love the tassel clutch. I’m smaller on the bottom and larger at the top I don’t think I could pull off the look but I may try on a few pairs and see what happens 🙂

  • I adore this look. Btw how tall are you kim?
