A friend once told me that I’m much more of a cold-weather dresser than that of a hot one. I prefer to layer, build up textures and to tie it all together with some wool-content items for good measure. My long-time go-to item of clothing has and will always be a wide-fit pair of trousers with a pleat detail and belt loops. I feel like you just can’t go wrong with the right pair and they can be styled with knitwear, fitted tops, chunky tops, slouchy tops, big coats, small coats, trainers, loafers…I could go on.
The beauty of this tailored style of trousers is that they go hand in hand with non-tailored items so well. Don’t get me wrong, a waistcoat and blazer also helps nail the look, but I thrive on styling mine with a fitted jersey top or t-shirt and a bomber jacket or similarly loose-fitting piece.
