It’s almost time to say goodbye to bare legs and start layering up instead. Is your wardrobe lacking in cool trousers to go with those cosy knits and boots? Then keep reading, because we’ve just named the five key trends when it comes to trousers this season – plus showing how to style them…
1. Cord trousers
A pair of cord trousers looks best worn with a matching blazer. A striped knit and ’70s-style accessories are the right finishing touches.
2. Cycling shorts
Only just got used to cycling shorts? We have a longer version you can still wear on warm autumn days if you want to give the trend a go, worn with a houndstooth blazer and mules.
3. Checked trousers
Do checks differently with a souvenir tee, suede boots, a matching hat and pearl-embroidered drawstring bag.
4. Cigarette pants
Cigarette pants are a classic, so keep the rest of the styling in line. We’re thinking argyle knits, block-heel pumps and a boxy handbag.
5. Wide-leg trousers
Play on the retro appeal of these velvet wide-leg trousers by styling them with other vintage-inspired pieces like an embroidered jumper, frill-hem blouses or croc-effect sandals.
