How to Wear…Wide-Leg Trousers

image1xxl-1Wide legs are the way to go this season. And they’re surprisingly easy to wear…

Take one pair of trousers courtesy of Asos’ Premium collection (a cost-effective way to dip a toe into the trend). Wear with fitted sweater or a blouse – the latter should be tucked in, not free-flowing. A JCrew Tippi would suit our purposes perfectly. Alternatively, opt for something sleek and striped – when is a stripe not a good look? I love this pintuck blouse which I styled for our W&W wear…Topshop post, or try this chiffon pussy-bow number. Add heels – always heels, especially if you’re on the short side. I like the idea of a flash of contrasting colour peeping out from below your hemline. Note: your trousers should nearly kiss the floor, do not allow them to flap inelegantly around your ankles.

I have a pair of sailor-style wide-leg trousers I bought from Asos two years ago, which I am planning to haul out again (once I return to work. For, let us be honest, this is not a look designed for childcare. Unless you have a lot of help and can waft around in an angelic manner, dropping kisses on little heads and not actually mucking in.)
