The Coolest New Trousers and How to Wear Them Without Delay

You’re totally forgiven for scratching your head over which trouser or denim shape to commit to in 2016. There’s no one dedicated silhouette that defines the S/S 16 collections, but the mood is decidedly experimental. The collections partly champion directional tailoring, only to be closely followed by normcore’s beloved straight-leg look. Then there are some racy transparent PVC trews (thank you J.W.Anderson) that contend with Chanel’s wet-look baby pink flares (yes, really).

The style circuit is overwhelmed in choice when it comes to bottoms with joie de vivre and jeans shapes cut every which way and how. However, fashion’s elite has unified on the resolution that spray-on skinnies are to be left alone for a year or so… Well, until we change our minds next week, of course!

To demystify the trouser game, we’ve clocked the key styles and how to wear them in the moment. Scroll down for a master class on 2016’s must-have trousers.
