These Expensive-Looking Pants Are Dominating the Fashion Crowd Right Now

If you’ve been intently scrolling through the sumptuous street style imagery from every fashion week on your way to work, then you may have noticed one particularly elegant trend popping up on repeat. Wide-leg trousers have been fashion girls’ pants of choice this season thanks in part to their significant presence on the S/S 20 runways. A plethora of designers from Victoria Beckham to Louis Vuitton featured longer-length, tailored yet relaxed-fitting wide-leg pants, most often styled with blazers and overcoats as part of a suit. They came in a variety of colors from versatile beige to navy pinstripes and peppy pink.

Wide-leg tailored trousers ooze sophistication and polish, giving your outfit an expensive-looking touch. And there are plenty of chic options for all budgets on the market right now guaranteed to elevate even the most casual sneakers and white tee. Style them with a matching or contrasting blazer and wide-collar shirt for one seriously luxe-looking desk-to-drinks look. Scroll below to see how fashion girls are wearing their wide-leg trousers right now, and shop our favorite picks.
