PERFECT FOR YOU: How to wear hot-off-the-catwalk wide leg trousers

Posted on: April 24, 2015

150417-1item2ways-trouser-RTIt’s an all out ‘statement trouser’ season thanks to the retro 70’s trend that swept the designer catwalks. Shapes are wide leg, textures silky and floaty and prints wild, hot and bright. There is no holding back. The best description I have heard of this trouser trend is when the Man Repeller blog called them: bandana pants. And that in effect is exactly what they are – think a printed silky scarf turned into trousers. These styles immediately sing out summer and glamorous beach holidays or poolside posing as well as giving outfits an instant trend update. It’s a wardrobe must-have that will very easily take you from beach to bar, city lunch to dinner. Because your trousers will be the centrepiece you can keep to separates and accessories in neutral tones. On the other hand there are some fabulous matching print top and trouser combinations which make a bold but ultra-chic statement. Balance out the voluminous wide leg with a cinched in at the waist top or go for a floaty layered effect with fluid looser fit blouses. Now where’s that yacht?!….Natalie x
