Trend of the Week: Trophy trousers

Forget the statement dress, ditch that IT bag; this season it’s all about the trophy trouser says Annmarie O’Connor.




INSPIRATION

Trousers have become the talking point for autumn/winter with conversational prints and outré fabrics demanding attention. From Balmain’s swashbuckling velvets to brash brocades at Stella McCartney, not forgetting Christopher Kane’s moiré silk offerings, more is definitely more!

STYLE NOTES

Pair straight legs with kitten heels and streamlined courts, saving round toe wedges and open toe platforms for wider-legged styles.

For desk-to-dinner chic team those trousers with a classic button-down shirt and blazer.

Weekend warriors can offset lavish jacquard and high-shine metallics with a relaxed knit and ballet flats.

Too much? Opt for fabrics like coated cotton or textured velvet in forest green or subtle sapphire.
