On the topic of man-repelling and boyfriend jeans, one other item we love stealing from the boys is a dandy old pair of tailored trousers. Yves Saint Laurent popularized the menswear-inspired look when he created the Le Smoking suit and since then, more and more women have been sporting men’s pants or having pairs tailored just for them.
Taking a breather from too casual jeans, we’re giving you four different ways on how you can sport manly trousers pegged after looks we’ve spotted on the streets. Scroll down and let’s begin.
EARN YOUR STRIPES
Now if you don’t feel like layering, here’s an alternative to try out while still keeping the easy and put-together vibe of the first look.
Printed bottoms are an easy way to add character to an outfit. Keep it light with a classic checker print paired with a beanie and sneakers that give off a boyish charm.
Nothing looks as effortlessly well-dressed than an all-white ensemble with the right proportions. Go for light wool trousers and a crisp cotton button-down paired with flat sandals for a look that’s fuss-free.
