The Beaut Trouser Edit: There's Plenty of Pants

This season might be all flowery and pretty and pink, but the old trouser is not too happy about this. Trouser says its overlooked and has decided to make its presence felt once again.

Trouser is not just for office wear, it likes a social life as much as the next person so it has decided it needs to get out more. And so it has taken to the catwalk like a chameleon, and adopted its various forms. Show off.

But there's truth to it. The trouser is back, and it's got a new look. So here's the trouser guide to getting your look in check.

  • Culottes

Yeah, the primary school uniform is back and this time its quite chic. The easiest way to start is with a black pair and keep it simple.

To dress them up, wear a structured top with them, and keep the fabric in the culottes nice and flowing so they look like a midi-skirt. This will break you into the culotte wearing frame of mind more easily. 

  • High Waisted

Ah my tummy loves these, as they keep it tucked in and snug. I love the high waisted not just for this reason. They also make your legs look way longer if you opt for a wider leg. Well that was an easy decision. 

  • Wide Leg

Speaking of wide leg, this is the catwalk favourite. Swishing fabric was the look, and Zara currently have some amazing pairs in light fabrics for summer. Team up with your denim jacket and keep it casual, like I did at fashion week dahling. 

  • The Flare

I know, I know, we've talked about this before, but honestly it's like a flare fandom out there. Avoid the bell bottom look which are a bit too literal a translation of the seventies trend. The trousers need to start to widen above the knee so that they transition into a wide leg in a more flattering way

  • The Ankle Grazer

Ok, I love this one for work. Come summer, we can show a little ankle with our stilettos. The ankle grazer is not to be confused with the cropped trouser which stops along your shins. The ankle grazer, as it's longer, keeps length in your calves and is as nice with flats as it is a heel. 

So you see Trouser has decided that there is a style for every occasion. Have you a favourite pair that you cannot live without? Which trouser trend do you think is for your summer wardrobe?
