HOW TO STYLE MEN’S WIDE-LEG TROUSERS
Once an emerging trend in trouser land, the wide leg is now a men’s style staple.
It’s official: wide-leg trousers are having a moment.
That’s right, it’s time to retire your skinny jeans once and for all (if you haven’t already) and go big or go home.
There’s a lot to love about the updated offering of this menswear classic.
Looser silhouettes offer more room to breathe as the temperature rises, plus an opportunity to play with proportions.
Try tucking in a button-down Oxford or Cuban-collar shirt and adding a thin leather belt and penny loafers for a timelessly elegant smart-casual look.
Or keep things effortless with a simple tee and leather trainers.
Wide leg trousers – more than other times – are coming back in a huge way; from the Cali boy with baggy pants and bowler shirt to the office gent with wide wool separates and a soft blazer,” says Melvin Tanaya, co-founder, and designer of Sydney label, Song For The Mute (SFTM).
How To Rock The Wide-Legged Trouser
- Keep the top half of your outfit tailored or a clean, neat fit. A blazer or cropped jacket is ideal, cutting the trouser hem on (or just below) to give you a streamlined waist, not swamping your torso.
- Go for a cropped pair with a statement hem to keep the look contemporary.
- Opt for low-profile dress shoes with a thick sole such as a pair of chunky derbies, or minimalist sneakers.
