How to wear wide trousers.
Wide trousers have been around for decades. The masculine look. Their popularity waxes and wanes. Recently they have taken a back seat as we have embraced the slimline and skinny styles. However they have been slowly gaining ground over the last few seasons and are centre stage for autumn/winter 2015.
For me they have never totally lost their charm and I still have 3 pairs in my wardrobe from Armani Collezioni that I have owned for about 10 years. I occasionally pack them away but can’t bring myself to get rid of them. They still fit well and they will be re-worked again this year.

Personally I think wide trousers look best teamed with simple structured shapes. You will have to be careful with the overall proportion which will need to be adapted to your height and figure shape. If you are petite you can still achieve the look provided you do not go too wide.
Wide trousers teamed with short cream jacket. I found a nice one at MandS.

A classic look with a crisp white shirt. In my opinion one of the best ways to wear wide trousers is with a white shirt. A good selection can be found at Landsend.
I love this casual laid back look.
