Trend | Statement Trousers

Trend report – Loud Legs…

This season it’s all about the printed pant. Whether skinny, tapered, billowing or pyjama, the catwalk has spoken and this season, it’ll be your legs doing the talking. When making such a statement, team your trousers with a simple white tee, or a silk blouse for a smarter look, and finish off with either flats or heels, both work just as well.

Print was all over the catwalks, but those putting their best er, leg forward were the likes of D&G whose scarf prints have inspired more than just trousers this spring/summer. Models at Isabel Marant came in light blue shades, tapered legs clad in delicate paisley (which, by the way, is another trend this season, so root out your 90s’ gypsy tops, or perhaps not.) More blue hues were shown at Peter Pilotto, his scuba designs adding an aquatic scaly statement to pins. And a touch of shimmer was provided by Prabal Gurung with iridescent florals but it was Theyskens’ Theory who went all out with stunning metallics.

Not only does the statement trouser inject some much needed colour and/or excitement into your look, but leave you fabulously on trend when you haven’t had the time or energy to shave and fake tan, which for me and my ultra-violet skin tone can mean but one thing,  hoo-bloody-ray.
