Wave buh-bye to your skinnies. Their cooler, comfier counterpart is throwing big shapes for SS17 and has had a seal of approval from street style’s greatest trend mother Rihanna. Don’t believe us? Check these five looks, proving wide-leg is the way to stroll…
EVERYONE IS WEARING
Proof wide-leg trousers are so in right now
By Maybelle Morgan, 16 March 2017
Yep, it’s a certified trend when queen of cool Rihanna herself steps out in the XXWL (extra extra wide-leg) version. The skater jean is big news for SS17, so make like RiRi with a matching denim jacket, cropped high-neck top and boxfresh sneaks.
Not just for the weekend, the wide-leg thing is so right for your 9-5 work gig, but keep it smart in grey pinstripes and tailored turn-ups. Choose a cropped jumper and finish with old-school masculine accessories: think Dr Martens and a retro doctors bag.
Stripes just got a nautical-meets-PJs update with these fresh toe-skimming trousers. Stay weather-appropes with a high-neck velvet sweat, then add chunky platform boots and a leather studded cross-body bag for a grunge element.
Florals for spring? Actually groundbreaking when incorporated into SS17’s fave trouser silhouette and cropped to cool perfection. Carry on the statement by wearing with the co-ord top and layering over an orange knit and puffer.
Yes, we don’t want to get out of bed either, but compromise by draping your legs in the dreamiest floor-sweeping velvet. Amp up the glam with bold strappy heels, a trophy cross-body and some mirrored sunglasses.
