Trend Report: Wide-Leg Trousers

The fashion gods saw us all strutting about town in peg-straight trousers and jeans and knew it was time to refresh our silhouettes in the form of a new trend. Wide-leg trousers are officially in. The skinny style is a classic, so there’s no need to do a drastic wardrobe detox and banish all slimline trousers forevermore. Au contraire—take the advent of the oversize wide-leg look as a style vacation from spray-on jeans of seasons past. 

Reels of street style photos have quickly taught us that you don’t have to a be Victoria’s Secret model to pull off billowy, flowing trousers. Cut-off, flared shapes can be flattering for all heights. The secret is clearly in the choice of shoes and the length of the jacket/coat/top you team with it. Debunk the styling tricks and learn how to pull off long, cropped, pleated or cuffed triangle trousers forevermore. Amen.
