This Is the Most Flattering Trouser Style to Own Right Now

Paperbag trousers will be a key silhouette in 2019 because they're comfortable, chic and seriously flattering. The super-high-waisted pants sit just above your belly button and usually come with an attached belt that pulls in the waist. The leg and hip are a more relaxed, wider shape, which makes them up there on the comfort scale. There are so many different styles and fabrics to suit any budget, from Rodarte's wool checked paperbag trousers to Arket's wool linen version. The key to getting the styling right is to ensure you wear a top you can tuck in, whether it's a simple white T-shirt that's loosely tucked or a fine cashmere knit.
