It’s been a very busy summer and therefore crickets on the blog, but I’m back with some tips on how to style trousers – an old classic that is trending again. Before you cringe at the “trending” part, keep in mind that some trends are very classic and can withstand the test of time. Stick with me for these trouser styling tips.
In a world that’s increasingly conscious of its environmental impact, the fashion industry is undergoing a much-needed transformation. Yay! More and more people are turning to ethical and sustainable clothing brands that prioritize quality, longevity, and responsible production. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to style trousers for various occasions, ensuring you look chic while supporting a more sustainable future.
How To Style Trousers
Let’s begin with the details of the trousers I’m wearing – Everlane Way-High Drape Pant, made out of sustainable tencel & cotton. My biggest tip for these trousers is to consider sizing down, as they tend to run on the larger side. I went with the 30″ length (I’m 5’7″), which I find flattering with a variety of shoes (heels & flats alike). Now, let’s dive into how to style these classic khaki trousers – timeless style can indeed coexist with sustainable fashion.
CASUAL LOOK: KHAKI TROUSERS WITH OLIVE AND DENIM
For a relaxed, everyday look, opt khaki trousers paired with a neutral top and a denim jacket (code ASHLEIGH25 to save 15%). This combination strikes the perfect balance between comfort and style. The key here is to choose a fitted top with an open neckline. The trousers and jacket are oversized, so balance that with a fitted top. The oversized denim jacket adds a touch of casual flair and versatility to your look.
Accessorize this outfit with a great leather bag and gold jewelry for a modern take on classic pieces that will last for years. When investing in a leather bag, consider choosing one from a brand that values quality craftsmanship, pays living wages, and sources their materials responsibly. Use code ASHLEIGH15 to save 15% from ABLE.
DATE NIGHT OUTFIT: TROUSERS WITH CHIC CAMI & BLACK LEATHER
For a romantic date night, pair khaki trousers with black. Since the trousers are made from a sustainable tencel and cotton blend, they are comfortable and flattering. A chic black cami is a wardrobe stable you already have – it makes for a sleek and stylish base to this outfit.
To complete your date night look, add a black leather jacket (code ASHLEIGH15) as the centerpiece. A high quality leather jacket is so classic you will be able to wear it for 20+ years. How do I know? I got mine when I was 16. haha. Finish off the look with pointed toe boots & gold jewelry for an extra touch of elegance.
OFFICE APPROPRIATE: TROUSERS & CABLE KNIT SWEATER
Can we talk about this sweater for a moment? It’s the essence of sweater luxury in the perfect shade of red for Fall. I can’t get enough. Ethically made from organic cotton, this twisted knot sweater is breathable and easy to wear. I’m gushing about it and I’m not sorry.
Ok, so when you want to style trousers for work this is how you do it. Pair the red sweater with trousers, a classic tote and boots. Choose neutral tones for the bag & belt, such as black or navy, to complement the bold red sweater. Accessorize with classic gold jewelry to add a touch of sophistication to your work ensemble. This is an outfit formula to shamelessly repeat every week.
