We talk about elevated basics a lot here at WWW. After all, it’s these special pieces that are often the heroes of our wardrobes with that ability to balance out trend-driven pieces. One item that basically every fashion editor on our team owns? Loose trousers.
With a focus on more relaxed silhouettes and tailoring over the last few seasons, loose pants have become an integral part of the wardrobes of many to be dressed up or down. In fact, you may already have a pair or two in your arsenal. Well, if you don’t own a pair yet or want to refresh your assortment, below you’ll uncover the best loose pants for women on offer at the moment.
Keep scrolling to check out on-trend pants from retailers like Nordstrom, Shopbop, and H&M. You’ll also find visual inspiration from some of our fashion editors showcasing how to wear loose pants.
Style Tip: Embrace the layered look this fall with a relaxed button-down shirt tucked into loose pants and a leather trench on top.
Style Tip: A bold scarf adds the perfect finishing touch to a turtleneck-and-trousers combo.
Style Tip: If it's slightly warmer where you are, consider a vest as an alt to a top with your favorite loose pants.
Style Tip: A leather jacket will make any outfit feel all the cooler.
Hey, there. Bobby here. I've been working as a fashion writer in the industry for over a decade, contributing to various websites and brands such as Refinery29, Men's Health, and of course, Who What Wear. I've spent many years at Who What Wear, currently acting as the senior market editor where I source the coolest and chicest items at our favorite stores to help you, dear readers, build your version of the perfect wardrobe. While I lived in NYC and L.A. for a while, I actually now live in Boston. Sure, I've changed locations, but my fashion perspective remains the same, as I tend to reach for those classic basics with a twist (think slouchy moto jackets, trendy joggers, and the like). When I'm not writing or talking about fashion, you can often find me catching up on my favorite Bravo shows (Vanderpump Rules and The Real Houswives of New York City are my favorites) or sipping my signature cocktail—a vodka martini with a splash of cranberry and a twist.
