Victoria Beckham Just Copied Kate Middleton's "Risky" Winter Trouser Outfit

As we near the end of the year, celebrity outings are becoming more and more frequent. With awards ceremonies, press events and annual engagements cropping up throughout the weeks, we've had the exciting opportunity to catch an extra glimpse of some of our favourite style icons over the past month. As someone who spots trends for a living, I will admit that I was surprised to see this particular trend worn by three of my favourite famous women over the past few days. All known for their elegant, refined and manicured taste (amongst many other things), I was shocked to spot Victoria BeckhamCatherine, Princess of Wales and Anne Hathaway opt for white wide-leg trousers on drizzly December days.

Known to favour a white suit for event-wear, Victoria Beckham was spotted styling the fresh shade from head-to-toe late last week. Opting for mid-rise white wide leg trousers, Beckham style her look with a long-line white blazer, a white blouse and a slim gold belt.

Attending a carol service at Westminster Abbey, Kate Middleton ignored the wet weather forecast and styled white, floor-skimming wide-leg trousers with a white blouse and longline white coat. Protecting the bottom of her trousers from sneaky puddles and muddy grass, The Princess opted for tall stiletto heels, adding extra height whilst keeping her ankles dry.

Simultaneously, in New York City, Anne Hathaway was spotted mirroring The Princess's outfit, styling a white base layer with matching wide-leg trousers and a lavender cardigan as she left a recording of The Tonight Show. Making her way through the city's streets, Hathaway kept her white trousers looking fresh with chunky beige boots.

Whilst winter whites are a cold-weather no-brainer, when we're met with frequent showers that lead to slippery, muddy pathways, white wide-leg trousers aren't for the faint-hearted, nor can they be described as practical. But, with a little bit of confidence and a stain-erasing pen in your bag (team Who What Weak UK swear by Tide to Go Stain Pens, £10), there's no reason not to give them a go. 

So if you're feeling brave and ready to manifest a white Christmas through your outfit, read on to discover my edit of the best white wide-leg trousers to buy now.
