Straight leg pants are essentails of any well curated closet. A vintage T-shirt, low slung straight pants and a pair of Tod’s loafers make a charming ensemble. For an elegant evening attire, opt for a pair of straight leg black tuxedo pants, a silk satin slip top and a pair of high heels. Straight pants are wardrobe pieces we can always count on from day to night.
A world of good style
The British designer Stella McCartney has revolutionized effortless style for busy women. We love the twist on slim-fit work pants that Stella McCartney has. The bold prints and simple shapes of the pants make Mondays all the more bearable, when combined with a blazer and white shirt. For after-work hours, change to killer heels and a designer leather jacket. Etro offers straight leg pants with silk jacquards and Italian tailoring. Utilize that charm and team with a cream jacket and a pair of Church’s loafers.
In America the responsibility of laid-back elegance has landed squarely on the shoulders of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen from The Row. Famous for a subdued color palette of honey caramels and monochromatics made exclusively from luxury textiles, it’s these ‘basics’ like a pair of The Row cotton slim-fit pants that can make your wardrobe distinguishable. Keeping within the genre, from France we would naturally pick Chloé. Chloé followers are walking talking testaments to quality and cut. Try the white straight pants with a longer double-breasted jacket, or black slim-fit wool pants with a lightweight trench coat, a refreshingly classic way to take on the changing seasons.
It's in the details
Just like in menswear, details within tailoring are what changes between seasons. Sharp front creases have stayed consistent with the shortening of hems, creating clean lines and exposed ankles perfect for delicate heels. Boyfriend pants have gained in popularity. Mid-rise, roomier around the thigh with a longer crutch, they make for a new silhouette that is fun to play with and a good mix-up to slim-leg pants. Just as ankles are in vogue, so are lengths that pool on the ground. Try this style with tennis shoes and delicate silk shirts from Equipment.
Slim-fit cargo pants find their way into collections here and there from one season to the next. We suggest having fun with the masculine, utilitarian detailing of slim-fit cargo pants by contrasting them with frills or other ultra feminine touches. High-waisted slim pants are predominantly in silk and wool crepes that sit on narrow waistbands, sometimes with little side-cuff splits. Also, slim-fit black pants are a good staple to have in the closet. They can be very dressed up, even as an alternative to eveningwear, or casual with a white t-shirt and sneakers. Colored, patterned, embellished and elaborate silk jacquard weaves, these are for women who would rather wear pants than dresses. Each season will have a new print or genre to get excited about. Just like the details in a crime fiction, a small change can give the plot away. Build up on the classics that fit you perfectly first and then get adventurous with how you decide to wear them.
