Trending Trousers 101: Five Pairs To Love For Spring

Trending Trousers 101: Five Pairs To Love For Spring

From corduroy culottes to wide-leg styles, these are the trending trousers you need to try for spring 2018.

Wide-leg trousers

Wide Leg Trousers by Boutique, €117 at Topshop

The wide leg trouser gets a modern update with this chic grey pair from Topshop. The pleat detailing and cut of this pair is super-sophisticated with a high waist and slightly over-long leg. Perfect for work or cocktail hour. We’re styling them with a printed blouse for the office and beyond.

Smart athleisure trousers

Tie Side Stripe Sweat Pants, €115 at Whistles

Give athleisure a modern update with these cool, wide-leg, cropped-cut and relaxed sweatpants from Whistles. These wardrobe essentials are finished with a cool contrast-colour stripe along the side of the leg. The stylish tie-side detail at the waist balances smart with sporty.

Stirrup trousers

Straight-cut crepe stirrup trousers, €104.29 at Maje

 Can you remember your first per of stirrup leggings or trousers? This nineties wardrobe staple has made a contemporary and sophisticated comeback. We love these fitted stirrups trousers from Maje, complete with belt loops and Italian pockets on the sides and back pocket. Given ss18 is so much about comfort and versatility, they’re a great choice for the new season. Pair yours with a smart pair of court shoes or chic trainers.

Corduroy trousers

Wide corduroy trousers, €79 at & Other Stories

Easy and elegant, these billowy high rise corduroy trousers are easy to wear and functional. Culottes tend to suit most shapes and sizes, and the shorter leg length gives the illusion of long, slender legs (which is never a bad thing!). These corduroy culottes from & Other Stories feature an adjustable D-ring belt to further define the waist.

The patterned pant

Floral print trousers, €39.95 at Mango

Make an impact with a pair of pants that pack a punch. When it comes to prints and colours for ss18, there is no wrong answer. Think bold stripes, big florals and strong colours. Printed pants can be quite distracting so we suggest keeping your top-half more refined and simple. This will also help your trousers to really pop.
