The right pair of trousers for eternal style
Shopping for ladies' trousers can be deeply frustrating! A good pair of trousers should fit like a glove – but it's very hard to find the right ones. Straight leg trousers suit most women and are usually a safe choice; try chinos or pleat-front trousers for simple everyday style. Make sure that they are the right length for you, though. Generally, petite sizes are for women 160 centimetres or shorter, while tall ranges usually start at 179 cm. The hem should usually be just above the floor, so it doesn't drag when you're walking. Remember, that means a different length depending on whether you're wearing heels or flats.
Choosing trousers for the office
Women's work trousers should be smart and business-like, so you'll usually want to choose a neutral colour. Black is always a safe choice, but you can differ a little by going for dark grey or navy blue. For something a bit different, why not try camel or tan? They will really pop if you're wearing a dark top! If you're on the curvy side, you might want to go for trousers with a slight boot cut. The gently flared legs balance out your hips, minimising them for a more proportional look. Not bothered about that? Try a wide-legged pair for something a bit different. These should gently skim your hips then fall totally straight all the way down. For the office, you don't want to go too wide – but a slightly wide-legged style is an excellent way to enjoy comfort and style in your business wardrobe, particularly if you wear them with a slender heel. Pair your trousers with a matching blouse or tunic – or go the more casual way and combine them with a simple T-shirt and blazer!
Stylish trousers for the weekend
When not in the office, you can let your ladies' trousers really shine! Now it's time to break out your leggings, shorts and culottes. Here, you can also be very fashionable by wearing leather trousers that'll instantly elevate your outfit to seem more edgy! If you're brave enough to try colour, choose a pair of harem trousers in a bright, bold shade. Remember to balance the look by wearing a neutral on top, though. Pink, red or bright green trousers look great with a simple white T-shirt. When you want to be really casual, go for a fun pair of harem trousers. These are super relaxed, but will draw plenty of attention! Almost anyone looks good in this fun style, which is also one of the easiest to wear. Sweatpants are also good for dressing down; just make sure to keep your gym trousers and your fashion sweatpants separate.
