‘The wider, the better’ is the new saying doing the rounds in the fashion circuit; and we bet all you stylish ones knew that already. A pair of skinny trousers is dying a slow death, and wide-legged trousers are the fad to get hooked on to. Ultra-voluminous pants are the perfect alternative to this bodycon mania most of us are sick of now. What’s best? It helps you stay comfortable in this crazy heat.
While the tailored classic boasts a silhouette that is sure to turn heads, it can be quite tricky to style. Billowy trousers are, more often that not, never paired with voluminous tops as you can end up looking like a sack. We suggest sticking to what the fashion Bible states sacrosanct—if you’ve got volume at the bottom, slim it down at the bodice by teaming the pant with a crop tops, corset, bralet, or even a fitted shirt.
Whether high-waist or low-slung, this trend is ideal for office (with a button-down shirt) or for date night (with a silk camisole). Pair the Forever New black pants we’ve recommended with a tucked-in shirt when you’re off to a meeting. Going out in the evening for drinks with friends? Switch to the Zara polka-dotted trouser with a solid-coloured top that has minimal embroidery. You can also sport the blue checkered The Label Life pants with a white crop-top and sneakers to go for brunch. Layer this with a tasselled shrug and add a head accessory with the Lulu & Sky trousers to attain a boho look. Just don’t be daunted by the enormity of the style, we say go ahead and experiment.
