Three ways to wear: wide-leg trousers
Want to give this season’s must-have wide-leg trousers a go? Check out three ways to wear them here.
According to the online dictionary, to waft means “to move gently and smoothly through the air”. Summer is always peak wafting time (it’s hard to waft in a winter parka) and this season you can take wafting to a new level thanks to the new must-have wide-leg trouser.
If you want a break from shimmying into skinny jeans and jeggings, you’ll love their easy and flattering silhouette, but here are a few ways to keep their billowy proportions in check.
Indigo wide-leg trousers are a fresh, unexpected alternative to everyday jeans. This pair from Tu are tailored with a flat front to smooth over your tummy and a silhouette that skims over your hips and legs, for a breezy, flattering effect. Slip on a one-button jacket to nip you in at the waist and a pair of box-fresh trainers to nail this sweetly tomboyish look.
Culottes are the season’s trickiest trouser shape, but here’s an easy way to pull off the look. Start with Tu’s cleverly tailored pair in crisp white (bonus: the cute brass-trimmed button detail at the waist). Non-spindly heels are required in this outfit scenario; the chunkiness of these navy wedges will show off shapely calves and “anchor” the trousers’ short flared hemline. And for the hat-trick, try adding a cute fine-knit sweater.
Every designer from Prada to Jonathan Saunders sent a stripe or two striding down their spring runways but the real reason you’ll really love these strides? Legs that go on for miles… or that just look like they do, thanks to their leg-lengthening vertical lines. Balance out their floaty shape with a neat, fitted top that you can tuck in and add some gleam with metallic sandals.
Here’s to a summer full of fashionable wafting! How will you be hitting your style this summer?
