This season, we’re all about comfort. Wide-leg trousers are big on the fashion circuit, and everyone, including Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Lopez, has been spotted wearing them. It’s time to shed your ankle-skimming, tapered jeans to make room for this baggy silhouette. Seek inspiration from the runway – choose from Hermès’ version in earthy tones with a matching blazer or have fun with Mara Hoffman’s brightly-coloured, printed rendition. Alternatively, you can opt for Proenza Schouler’s cropped style or keep it classic with a simple white, high-waisted pair à la Gianfranco Ferré. Whichever you pick, we show you how to take this billowy style from day to night.
Break the fluidity of your pants with a structured, cropped top in a light, summery colour and a subtle print. Finish your look with sky-high wedges and an eye-catching cuff.
