These Are The Hero Trousers Every Working Woman Needs

These Are The Hero Trousers Every Working Woman Needs

Every so often you stumble on a piece of workwear that becomes your personal wardrobe hero – the item you consistently return to whenever you need to up your game for an interview or an important meeting that can transition effortlessly to after-hours. Even more rarely, your colleagues take notice and ask where it’s from and before you know it, you need a what’s app group to coordinate when who’s wearing it when.

When you find that genius piece that really works,  you really don’t mind sharing. Here at IMAGE HQ, it seems we’ve gone mad for a particular style of trousers that seems to suit virtually every shape, size (and age) and we’d like to let you in on it.

What makes these work for so many body types is a flattering high paper-bag waist, which emphasises the narrowest part of the torso. Front pleating adds to the optics, further accentuating the waistline. Simple. Here’s a selection of our favourite versions of these hero trousers. You’re very welcome.
