Big Spring Trend: White Wide-Leg Pants

This spring's bevy of white wide-leg trousers are slouchy, voluminous, and, dare we say, infinitely cooler than the Limited Too palazzo pants we begged for in middle school. Seen on the Spring 2014 runways of Thakoon, Wes Gordon, Peter Som and more, the look has become a staple of street-style stars in recent months. And no wonder: the oversized silhouette and pure color palette makes the garment endearingly boyish and polished at once. 

Balanced with a fitted crop top—à la Lady Gaga—the floor-skimming look is bold and fresh.

Or, go for spring's white-on-white trend by wearing the pants with a matching tee and boxy jacket. But whatever you do, steer clear of spring puddles.
