Twenty twenty-two is without doubt the year of the trouser. Tailored, slouchy, cargo, denim, low-rise… You name it; people want to wear it. But one shape, in particular, is pulling ahead as the most popular trouser trend, and it’s unsurprising, really. Wide-leg trousers are the wardrobe staple everyone from celebrities to our favourite influencers is wearing right now, and when you consider they’re comfy, chic and a really easy way to make an outfit look polished all year round, it totally makes sense.
They’ve quickly become one of our most-wanted categories on Who What Wear, probably because of how versatile they are. Trainers, heels, sandals, loafers—they all go with wide-legs. And since they’re inherently smart, you can pair them with any of the above and they work for the office, running errands, fancy dinners, casual drinks and even weddings if you can find a matching jacket. It’s no wonder, then, that all our friends—fashion or not—are asking us where to find the best ones.
