Do you ever have those days when you don’t feel like primping? Well, you’re not alone! We, too, get lazy to piece together on-point OOTDs but that doesn’t mean we want to look anything less than polished. It’s a good thing there are wardrobe pieces that do the work for you. We’ve already presented you with little black dresses and rompers that are as chic as they are cozy, but today, we’re highlighting something familiar yet oft-overlooked: loose pants. Yup, whatever fabric they’re made of, the relaxed silhouette of loose trousers imbue a sophistication that doesn’t compromise comfort. Ahead, we’ve rounded up 10 cool celeb outfits for you to draw inspo from. Get started!
1. Try tonal dressing.
Tired of wearing your trousers with the usual tees and blazers? Takes cues from Kathryn Bernardo who, as usual, adds a little masculine touch to her brown pants by layering a waistcoat underneath her oversized blazer. We love how she mixed earth tones for a unique color palette that's easy on the eyes.
2. Throw on a third piece.
Breathe new life into your good old pair of boyfriend jeans by trying the “third piece rule” that most fashionistas swear by. This could be anything from a denim jacket, a boxy blazer, to a longline cardigan like Laureen Uy’s, which is perfect for laidback days of errands and chilling at home. It’ll definitely add more personality to your look!
3. Pair your pants with equally loose pieces.
Speaking of jeans, if you’re looking to try the Y2K trend, you can hop on the bandwagon by donning a baggy pair in either raw denim or light wash denim. The trick to making it look modern is to play with color and silhouette. Take cues from Camille Co who stuck to a washed-out palette and paired her jeans with a loose tee and oversized blazer. Very fresh!
4. Go for all-white.
Wearing an all-white outfit may you remind you of dainty dresses or polished pantsuits, but this also applies to streetwear looks—just look to Angelique Manto! The TV host, known for her b&w outfits, stepped out in loose white jeans and a baggy tee, made rugged with chunky white sneaks. A simple yet super cool look you can get away with regularly!
5. Suit up in casual power dressing.
If you love wearing coords as pambahay like Ida Anduyan, then here’s a tip you can take outdoors! For an outfit that’s both classy and comfy, wear culottes with a matching boxy blazer for a modern take on the power dressing of the '80s. Dress it down with your fave pair of sneakers and a chunky belt, and you’re all set!
6. You can never go wrong with classic B&W.
If your style is simple and classic, take cues from Nicole Andersson who put together a classic black and white outfit but with a modern twist. She opted for pleated flared trousers and nixed the typical button-down for that IG-famous sharp-shouldered sleeveless top—very street style! Her main accent was her pastel seafoam green bag, which softened up the look.
7. Add some logomania touches.
Leave it to Nadine Lustre to make anything look unfathomably cool. Here, she adds a personal touch to her baggy jeans by donning a bodysuit and splashing logomania pieces—all Louis Vuitton—for a subtle take on the early 2000’s trend. Think of it as the hubadera version of a street style look!
8. Dress it up with heels.
The beauty of loose trousers is that it looks great either dressed up or down. So, the next time you’re heading out with a full day ahead, wear sneakers but keep a pair of heels to change into when night time comes. We suggest something trendy like Claudia Barretto’s BV Lido heels from Bottega Veneta.
9. Take it easy in nude hues.
If you love easy breezy summer style, then you’ll love Pia Wurtzbach’s laidback outfit! Her look consisted of simple, pleated linen trousers and a corset-inspired top that elevated her look to the realm of fashown. She barely put any accessories but if you feel like doing so, we suggest throwing on minimalist gold jewelry like medallion necklaces and layered bracelets.
10. Cropped tops are always foolproof.
Bea Marin has always been a fan of '90s fashion, but we love how she’s constantly giving it a contemporary spin. Here, she gives the classic cropped top and baggy jeans combo a casual spin with a cozy cardigan—it reminds us of vintage Calvin Klein, but make it 2020! Oh, and sneakers are non-negotiable, of course.
