Trousers are one of those key pieces every man has in their wardrobe, but they often get put into the workwear pile or only make an appearance when the dress code calls for smart, casual. We’re here to show you how you can get more wear out of your trousers and share style tips on how to create looks that are perfect for the cooler months, and perhaps even convince you to buy yourself a new pair. Here are the top four stylish trouser looks for men you’ll want to copy.
1. Elevate a street look
For a preppy-meets-street look, pair your trousers with casual separates and dress shoes. Layer a classic t-shirt under a slim-line bomber jacket in soft leather or lightweight material and add accessories that are both understated and cool, to pull your whole outfit together. Look to suspenders and a minimalist design dress watch to strengthen the preppy vibe and a pair of round thin metal-rimmed shades to make a sartorial street statement.
2. Create a high-low mix
Pull together a sophisticated, yet casual look with a great pair of relaxed tapered trousers paired with classic staples and high-end pieces. Create an outfit foundation consisting of a black cotton tee tucked into a pair of black trousers and layer a smart blazer in a subtle print. Add the bag of the moment – a great crossbody style, worn short – and for extra style points, complete your ensemble with a pair of smart looking sneakers.
3. Pair with athleisure items
Dress down a pair of trousers with stylish athleisure pieces that boast clean, simple designs. The key to getting this look right is having a slightly loose fitting trouser or a cargo style trouser to complement the more casual pieces, like a roomy jumper, comfy kicks and a sporty watch. For best results, opt for neutral colours to support the overall laid-back style of this trouser ensemble.
4. Build a tonal outfit
Nothing looks more effortlessly put together than a tonal outfit. To master this look, choose pieces that are in a slightly lighter or darker colour to your trousers to add depth to your ensemble. For interest, incorporate stylish separates in different textures or introduce a feature item in a subtle print for a monochrome look that’s anything but boring. Complete your look with sneakers in a contrasting colour.
