Who wears the trousers?

There’s a new trend storming off the catwalks and taking over street style; it’s chic, totally unique and über simple to incorporate into your current wardrobe. Say hello to dresses and skirts over trousers.

What? Together? We hear you cry. Yes, exactly. Once a popular look of the nineties, this sartorial combination is back with a bang. It’s even been spotted on Sarah Jessica Parker – need we say more?

But let’s rewind. To give credit where credit’s due, we should first all hail the fashion risk taken by Emma Watson at this year’s Golden Globes. Anyone else remember her backless red dress/black cigarette pants duo? We do. And so it seems does the fashion pack, for it’s following in droves.

Looking at the more mainstream trends, we can see this is a natural style evolution – for the fashion brave at least. With so many long, seventies-inspired silhouettes currently popping up in mainstream collections, layering our dresses or skirts with trousers is an easy way to adopt this new longer look and feel. Got a favourite loose-fitting shirt dress? Team with flared or loose fitting trousers to update it for the new season. Love your flared knee-length skirt or leather mini? Lengthen each look with skinny jeans or leather trousers.

Given that this look is all about going that extra mile with your hemlines, it makes sense that the possibilities are endless. Take a peek at our round up of street style pics, below, for a little inspiration of how to adapt your own wardrobe favourites.
