Fashion: The right trousers  | Daily Mail Online

They’re our wardrobe’s go-anywhere staple, but finding a style that flatters can be tricky. Here’s how… 

THE WIDE LEG 

The key to pulling off this look? Keep your top half fitted to avoid the trousers swamping you and ensure the cut of the waist – whether low-slung or high – flatters your body shape.

 Trousers, £59.99, zara.com

Cardigan, £62, baukjen.com

Earrings, £60, shop-daphine.com

Necklace, £159, missoma.com

Sandals, £185, filippa-k.com

 

THE TAPERED LEG

Narrow in all the right places, this is the go-to style for looking taller and curvier. To make the silhouette really sing, team with a pretty blouse or a fine knit tucked in.

THE LONGER-LENGTH SHORTS

More wearable than you might think, pick out a length that suits you – keep shorts just above or below the knee and culottes more midi – then add a simple T-shirt and trainers.

THE STRAIGHT LEG

This cut looks great with both oversized or fitted shirts and jackets. If going for a cropped straight leg, to keep the proportions flattering avoid pairing with a top that falls too low.

THE STRETCHY WAIST

Super comfy, an elasticated waist is a hero detail for many a chic pair of trousers, from smart joggers to silky pyjama-style bottoms. Just add a sleek blazer or shirt to elevate the look.

THE ANKLE-GRAZER

A flash of ankle is a chic trouser detail and looks great with a suit jacket or waistcoat. To up the polish, pair with a classic court or barely there heeled sandals. For a more casual feel, try an untucked blouse and trainers.
