How To Wear Gaucho Pants
Posted: Apr 17 2016
They are a tricky style for anyone to wear. They have a mid calf length with a abruptly wide leg opening that can be intimidating to even the boldest of style enthusiasts. But, once mastered the gaucho pant can be not only a great asset to your wardrobe but also a wonderfully comfortable addition to your summer and even transition wear. We have listed below a few options to help you learn what to pair with your gauchos both top and bottom.
Casual Weekend Style
The easiest way to start your journey into the world of gaucho pants is to go the casual route. Easy weekend wear goes great with the wide leg pant for a farmers market morning, an afternoon walking down the shopping district, and an evening on a patio for dinner with a stone fired pizza. For our weekend wear we styled our gauchos with our Ceramist Pebble Dyed Tunic from Atelier Delphine. The tunic is tucked into the adjustable waistband of the pants to give a more defined shape as to not look frumpy. The neutral colours add a pop without being overly invasive as the silhouette is the statement here. Both are natural based fibres, which compliment each other and keep up the casual style and work well with a relaxed weekend look. With an oversized top and bottom its best to keep a shoe that has a heavier weight to it so the lines are consistent. A thick-soled shoe with a platform will keep a great balance and cohesive style. Mixing something in a natural fabric that’s oversized helps to keep this a casual, weekend look.
If you are someone that likes to make a statement and keep cool in the summer heat then you might already have gaucho pants in your closet. For a more dressed up and contemporary look we have paired our gaucho pants with our Crop Top. The black double strap crop makes for a great contrast and using the adjustable waistband you can show as much or as little skin as possible. Throwing a chunky necklace or bold earrings helps to add more without overwhelming the look. This look is great if you are spending the summer at any out door concerts, nighttime loft parties or street festivals. You will be comfortable and cool while looking chic and in order. The best way to further accentuate this style is to put on a shoe with complimentary feel. Either a sneaker or a sandal would go well with this look to keep it in a updated casual silhouette.
If you work in a creative office you can add gauchos into your everyday work wear. The difference in between the previous looks and this look is that the additions need to be contrast fabrics and sleek silhouettes. We paired the gauchos with our raw silk Carrie Parry t-shirt. The silk adds a more luxurious and professional approach to the gauchos. It still has a blouson style silhouette to keep a balanced silhouette but the soft white keeps it toned down and more streamlined for an office environment. A short sleeve keeps it a creative casual top that mimics the gauchos but the silk fabric, high neckline keep it professional. Adding a statement necklace or simple bracelet keeps it in the minimal styling and even adding a sleek bag or oversized clutch adds for a higher-level outfit. A loafer with a thicker sole would work well with this outfit and keep it office appropriate.
Gaucho pants can be a tricky and intimidating addition in your wardrobe but they can also be a significant asset, as they work well for casual weekend wear, nighttime parties or office wear. Knowing how to balance your silhouette, keeping proportions in check is all you need to know for keeping this style consistent and comfortable. Taking a fashion risk is always a fun way to elevate ad change things up and even if you mess it up the first time, you can always try again.
