How To Style Puddle Pants

Universally flattering, timelessly elegant and incredibly easy to dress up or down - the puddle pant is enjoying a moment in the spotlight. Loved by the likes of everybody from Kate Middleton to Zoe Kravitz, this style can be adopted in many ways, from jeans to androgynous low-rise styles and classic mid-rise tailored cuts. 


No matter how you prefer to adopt the trend, these pants will elongate the leg and make you look effortlessly polished. It can feel challenging to get the proportions right but we’re here to simplify the process by laying out 5 foolproof shoe styles that you can’t go wrong with when wearing puddle pants.   

White Sneakers - Layyah White Patent

The now ubiquitous white sneaker is so easy to style with everything and especially so with puddle pants. Opt for something with a platform, such as these Layyah White sneakers, to add a few sneaky inches to your frame and allow the pants to drape more effortlessly. 

Pointed-Toe Heels - Ag-22134

The look of a sleek pointed toe peeking out from under a puddle pant is the epitome of elevated style. Perfect for the office, a nice dinner and weddings alike - you can’t go wrong with this chic but simple formula. The textured look of the Ag-22134’s toe will add a summery touch to the look that still feels work appropriate.

Loafers - Pennyloafer Black Patent

Loafers and puddle pants go together like hummus and pita. Give this typically preppy pairing a fresh twist this season by adding undone touches to your look. Opt for a half-tucked white oversized button-down, loose-fitting pants and a messy bun.   

Chunky Boots - Truth Off White

For a trendy take on puddle pants, dive back into our Autumn/Winter 22 range for a pair of chunky boots. EOS’s Truth Off White boots are perfect for cooler spring and summer days and will add a tougher edge to the refined look of the trousers.    

Sandals - Tank Natural

Jennifer Lawrence paired puddle jeans with moulded footbed sandals and we’ve been obsessed with the look ever since. The look of a chunky sandal such as the Tank Natural peeking out from under the wide leg of puddle jeans oozes sophisticated ease and effortless style.
