I bought a pair of AT wide leg chino trousers on super-duper clearance. How could I pass them by? Especially in a 12 tall? In store? Unheard of!

I usually do a long-over-lean style - this is diffeeent enough that I could use some advice on making this wide leg style work for me.

I am an accounting consultant, so my style goals are Confident, Smart, Approachable.

Photos 1, 2, 3 are my Casual Business wear uniforms - cardigan or tunic, scarf, slim pants, boots or clogs. Photo 4 is my first attempt at styling the trousers: white shirt, scarf tied to resemble a gentleman's necktie, long cardi, clogs.

My waist has been MIA since, oh, 2010, so the illusion of waist definition is usually what I aim for.

My closet is a collection of basics and I use accessories to give them flavor.

What do you think? Is there hope for this style to work for me? What am I missing? There’s just something a little off that I can’t quite pull my finger on...
