Getting a few pairs of designer trousers can immediately uplift your wardrobe. Whether you are looking for a classic suit-cut, or slightly more tapered to show off your figure whilst keeping your finger on the fashion pulse, it's important to find the right cut for you. Textiles can also play a crucial role: choose between tweed, cotton, linen, wool and sheer fabrics to smarten up an outfit. Coloured stitching can add a touch of originality to a dark suit; tweed, with its many facets, can add a touch of old-school glamour to your work wardrobe. Dark trousers enable you to make a statement with your top or shirt, whereas coloured bottoms can add a touch of retro chic to your outfit.
Men: When to wear designer trousers
Although trousers were usually confined to the world of work, you need not choose classic styles if you are looking for something a little different. Many designers, such as Emilio Pucci and Alexander McQueen, now offer trousers to suit every budget and occasion. To wear to work, you can go for the classic cuts of Polo Ralph Lauren or spruce up your suit with some tailored and textured pieces. Grey tweed looks particularly good when teamed up with dark shirts, a great look for work and going out on a smart date. Chinos are a staple item for any man's wardrobe, comfortable and versatile, they lend themselves equally well to a formal occasion as a friendly meet-up.
Choose lighter fabrics by day to compliment your shirts and T-shirts. Beige and camel tones are still popular, though the more adventurous can opt for vibrant reds, greens and blues to go with a preppy shirt. Sheerer fabrics work well out in the daytime, although lighter tones are, once again, key. Light greys and browns work brilliantly with mint coloured tailored shirts for work. For a casual look, why not try combining a pair of chinos with a statement T-shirt.
Designer trousers work well for formal events, with velvet and shimmering cottons offering a touch of elegance to an outfit. Wear darker tones if you feel you want to make the most of your top or shirt, whilst looking sharp. Vivid coloured trousers will make sure you are on-trend, even once the sun's gone down. If formal wear is a must, suit trousers work best. However, if you are off out with friends and close ones, try out linen fabrics and cotton weave trousers to go for a more casual look.
Trendy: Coloured trousers work well with checked shirts and buttoned tops - wear with loafers or plain trainers to show them off at their best. Tapered trousers make the most of slight figures and work well with pointed-shoes, to look stylish without looking like a try-hard. A classic cut will look good with a fashionable belt. You can also turn up the bottoms to keep your look fresh. Choose from a range of textiles and textures to mark your sense of style and originality with this gentleman's classic.
