Sometimes, all you need for a wardrobe overhaul is to get back to basics and trust in what you know. In this case, we’re talking about the old faithful wide-leg trousers – AKA the staple of the minimal Scandi silhouette and, let’s admit it, the comfiest choice in the chilly weather without going full-on trackie bottoms. See how these five #AsSeenOnMe snappers are wearing looser-fit trews their way…
INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
5 REASONS TO LOVE WIDE-LEG TROUSERS

Down to earth
The perfect all-year-round shade? Any earthy tones. They're light and fresh for summer but great for adding neutral brightness to your wardrobe come winter. Take a leaf out of ASOS Insider Shope’s book and go Scandi by pairing the crepe cropped trews with an oversized obi-tie white knit. Finish with clean white sneaks and a bright green clutch for a splash of colour.
Winter whites are definitely a thing, as proved by this blogger repping a Parisian-vibes all-light-everything outfit. For a chilled 70s feel, pair a monochrome print tee with raw-edge denim culottes and high-top Converse. Finish with a beige borg jacket and a woven bag for a bit of cosy texture.
Belt it out
Pinstripes and the longline shape of these trews make for some truly means-business bottoms, but the exposed hardware zip adds a cool element of detail. To keep it in Scandi blogger territory, pair with a white roll neck and fresh trainers, but add a dose of colour with a boxy orange denim jacket.
Walk the line
Stripes are never not a good idea when it comes to adding subtle print to an outfit, and monochrome lines make for an especially flattering stride. This blogger gains major AW17 points with a lemon-coloured slogan sweat, a hardware logo belt and chunky leather sliders.
