Think comfort, coolness and chic styles
By Rachael Nichol
One good thing that’s come out of lockdown is our newfound appreciation of comfort.
Loungewear all day, every day, has been one of our favourites looks over the past year but good news, this slouchy style is here to stay – and we’re obsessed!
Skinny pants are out and baggy pants are in. Extra-wide and flowy silhouette pants have been strutted down all the Spring/Summer 2021 runways in collections by Chanel, Victoria Beckham, and Balenciaga.
From slouchy, distressed denim to loose, extra-long trousers, here’s how to get this catwalk style on the high street taking you from living room lounging to a cheeky night out.
And of course, we’ll be wearing these whilst singing Madness’s anthem Baggy Trousers… Oh, just us?
Channel your inner ‘90s teen angst with this baggy street style. Gone are the days of uncomfortable skinny jeans, now baggy jeans are having their moment. Style with a crop top or blouse with a pair of trainers or stilettos to get a modern-chic look whilst we fulfil all our comfort needs.
Breezy and bold
Summer gives us a perfect excuse to bring some colour into our wardrobes and what better way to do this than with these beautiful bold wide-legged trousers? Embrace this trend with bold colours and prints that’ll stand out. Pair with a simple contrasting cami top or blouse in that’ll be sure to make the vibrant colours pop.
You can’t go wrong with monochrome. This classic palette never goes out of fashion and suits any skin tone. These simplistic black and white trousers will literally go with everything. Pair up with a white shirt for work, style with a graphic tee for daywear and dress up with accessories and a pair of heels for cocktails with the girls.
Seen on the runways in their pretty pastel glory these wide-leg trousers are high on the fashion menu. These lovely lilac, perfect pink and youthful yellow pale shades will add some subtle colour into your Summer wardrobe.

There’s no going wrong with these timeless trousers that’ll take you from work to bar crawls. Pair with a white or black top and gold accessories to give you a minimalistic but chic look.
