StyleBella: Wide-Leg Ponte Pant

I hope everyone had a nice Easter. We had a busy weekend running all over San Antonio and then spent Easter with my mom to celebrate my dad’s annual Easter BBQ. It’s something he always did and all the family came. Though he passed away a month before Easter a few years ago, he made my mom promise to have it that year and every year after. And she has. More than any other holiday, I think we miss him the most at Easter.

If you can’t tell from my other posts, I’m really excited about the Wide-Leg Ponte Pant. I rarely wear pants, opting for jeans, shorts or skirts. But I would wear these pants every day, instead of jeans. I have two sizes in the Navy and ordered the Black as well. Below are some options on how to style the Wide-Leg Ponte Pant in Navy but you can surely sub in the Black instead.

~ Tippi in Gingham, Vivid Canary (Cardigan, TopShop) ~
~ Wide-Leg Ponte Pant, Navy ~
~ Cleo Fabric Loafers, J Crew (pricey, on sale, espadrille) ~

I thought the yellow would be really nice to pop from the Navy pant and then the shoe just makes it a lot more fun. I don’t have the Tippi in Gingham but I do have a older lace shirt in yellow from Talbots that will sub in for this color Tippi. I love my Cleo Fabric Loafers I purchased a few years ago. I always get compliments when I wear them, especially since they are pretty noticeable.


~ Cropped Linen Top, Zara (similar, eyelet) ~
~ Wide-Leg Ponte Pant, Navy ~
~ Plaid Espadrille, J Crew (Flamingos, Coffee, Toms) ~

This is a little more casual with the airy linen top and espadrilles. I really wish the Plaid Espadrilles would have worked for me. I found a few other fun espadrille options though. Soludos has so many different styles to choose from and TOMS is in the espadrille game too. I like theirs because they have the elastic in the middle allowing the top to stretch a bit.


~ Silk Cap-Sleeve Top in Midnight Bloom, J Crew ~
~ Wide-Leg Ponte Pant, Navy ~
~ Sylvia Patent Wedges, Navy, J Crew Factory (Nine West) ~

This next option is good for the office or date night. I have the Sylvia Patent in Navy but you can chose any heel option you want. I also have several silk tops in my closet, with the Silk Indigo Floral Blouse being one of my favorites to wear.


~ Denim Jacket, J Crew ~
~ Striped Racerback Cami, J Crew Factory ~
~ Wide-Leg Ponte Pant, Navy ~
~ ZeroGrand Perforated Oxfords, Cole Haan (Comme de Garcons, Converse) ~

This is a sporty look adding some cool sneakers. If these pants looks good with Toms and espadrilles they’ll look good with sneakers. I have the Striped Racerback Cami on it’s way to me. I am hoping it will be a cool option for my trip.

I would be nice if J Crew would bring these in a khaki or chocolate color. I don’t think white or anything light would be good as the ponte might then start to become a bit see-through. Especially if they keep the same weight of the pant and not make it thicker.

How else would you style the Wide-Leg Ponte Pant?
