As with every season, this spring ushers in the inevitable forecasting of the next biggest and brightest trends to try. Not every trend is created equal, however, nor do they always necessarily translate off the runway and into real, everyday life. While you can attempt to work and mold these catwalk collections into wearable pieces in your wardrobe, only a few will actually fit and flatter your figure for fashion that functions. But all is not lost! It’s worth highlighting a handful of easy chic looks that will work no matter your size or shape. Find your perfect fit using these favorable fashions from Fashion Week.

Move over skinnies, there’s a new shape in town and it’s the wide-leg trouser. Whether dramatic, loose and palazzo like Marni or slightly slouchy like Hermes, the combination of volume and waist-cinching works wonders for a long, tall figure.
