Wide-leg, peg-leg, side-split, culotte, dropped-hem, high-waisted: we have an abundance of choice when it comes to picking the perfect trousers. Here is a selection of our favourites to get you started.


Living on the island of Ireland, the weather can, unfortunately, play a detrimental part in our wardrobe decisions. We often have to commit to an outfit that is practical and convenient for both sunshine, wind, rain, hail, and cold spells; making the final choice a not-so-obvious one. ?Tailored trousers in light and comfortable materials for spring and summer are the perfect option for chilly walks to work, sunny lunchtime outings to the park, and an after-work glass of wine on the terrace.

The right trouser suit will make you feel like a better version of you – and you’ll ?know it the second you put?them on. They should make you seem taller, more slender or shapely, and confident: you’re fail-safe wardrobe option when you need a bit more reassurance. What’s more, trousers are a gorgeous alternative for special occasions like Weddings, communions and confirmations, and birthdays, and with so many shapes and types to choose from, you’re bound to fund the pair that makes you feel on top of the world.

Next time you find yourself in a weather-induced wardrobe?predicament, all you have to do is reach for tailored pants, channel your inner Oliver Palermo or Victoria Beckham, and put your best foot forward. For the perfect ss18 look, team your tailored trousers with a simple t-shirt or cashmere sweater for cooler evenings. Take a browse in our gallery above at some of our seasonal favourites.
