Yep, they’re back. For real this time, and not just on the catwalks. Just about every high-street shop has them in abundance. From ribbed wool to jersey and super-wide, there’s a huge choice. Our favourite is this jean-trouser hybrid from Weekday.
The tailored trouser
This season, the tailored trouser is slightly cropped – just enough to show a bit of ankle, a sock or the top of your boots. Flattering with heels, too.
The high waist trouser
The bossiest trouser cut around. Easier to pull off than you might think. They also good with a matching top (of which Zara have plenty). Wear with trainers for maximum laid-back power-woman vibes, a la Céline.
The fancy jogger
Fancy in that you won’t ever wear it to to the gym, not because they’re expensive. It’s not a coincidence that the persistence of an elasticated waistband among even the snootiest members of the fashion elite coincided with the seemingly permanent trend for flat shoes. It’s not normcore, it’s exhaustion-core. Life’s stressful enough without having to worry about buttons (and bunions).
The bright trouser
The weather might be dull and grey, but your trousers don’t have to be. These trousers, in the shade of 2015’s indisputable overlords, Minion yellow, will make anyone happy.
