I'm Done With Skinnies, So I'm Fixating On These 4 Pant Trends For 2021

I don't mean to sounds like a hater here but skinny pants have started to feel outdated to me for a while now. I get that they're a classic and all but for me personally, I think it's finally time I lay them to rest. Let's face it, no matter how you feel about the silhouette, there's no denying that looser pant shapes are the reigning look in the fashion world right now—one look at the latest runway collections points to this. Based on all the new pant trends I'm seeing bubble up right now, I don't plan on regretting this decision any time soon. In fact, the below four styles that our very own namesake Who What Wear line is stocking are only adding more fuel to the fire.

From the long and languid trousers seen all over the spring runways to trending leather pants and Instagram-worthy prints, below I’m sharing the stylish and of-the-moment pant trends fashion girls are all over this season that I’m eager and excited to try. Peruse all of them below and soon enough you'll be saying skinnies, who?

1. Long and Languid

Loose tailoring was spotted all over the spring 2021 runways, so we expect to keep seeing a lot of these long, languid trousers in the coming year.

The comfy wide-leg silhouette might even rival your favorite sweatpants.

2. Sleek (Faux) Leather

Faux leather pants just seem to add a cool and elevated feel to every outfit and they make a great base for all your basic tops and tees.

3. Utility-Inspired

Subtle but interesting details like wide pockets and a nipped-in waist make these sturdy trousers a staple worthy of a closet upgrade.

Pair them with classics like button-down shirts and ankle boots for a casual-yet-chic look.

4. Funky Prints

These pants are only for people who like getting compliments (otherwise, keep scrolling). Bold prints are popping off right now and it's the funkier the better when it comes to these fun-loving pants that are sure to spice up your 2021 outfits.

If you're not into the print-on-print look, take some inspiration from this simple ensemble pairing our printed trousers with a cropped tee and leather jacket.
