Karlie Kloss Rewrites the Wide-Leg Trouser Rules

Most off-duty models take every chance to be as casual as possible, but never Karlie Kloss. Even in her most relaxed get-ups there's something tangibly polished, whether perfect it's the blow-out or seamless colour matching. Both could be said of this tonal grey ensemble she was spotted wearing in London this week. It's laid-back but inherently smart, too. The shades of grey are reminiscent of Gigi and Kendall's school of monochromatic styling but there's something about the super-wide strides and clompy shoes that make this outfit feel a smidgen more approachable for mortals everywhere—as well as proving that you don't have to wear super-stacked heels to make baggy trousers look chic.
