The Surprising Trouser Trend Every Fashion Person Is Wearing This Season

There's one glistening common thread running though the streets of London, Paris and New York right now, and its iridescent shine is leaving a trail of turned-heads in its path.

That's right, the silver trouser trend is amping up, convincing those of us who swore we'd never give in run to the checkout button with a glimmering garment in our shopping bag.

Elevating a simple white tee, or navy wool jumper, a silver trouser is easier to style than you might imagine. Elevating your wardrobe basics, the charm of the silver trouser is at its strongest when styled with your simple, casual capsule items, such as white trainers, a graphic tee, or a worn baseball cap.

Of course, there's plenty of room for dressing up this statement pant too, and styling them with a backless top and kitten heels is a fabulous way to start. 

Spotted up and down the high street, as well as from our favourite designer brands, silver trousers have been fashioned in jeans, leather, and coated fabrics, meaning that price points vary greatly and there's a silver trouser out there to suit any budget.
