How to Rock the Trouser Trend This Fall

Cooler temperatures mean packing away the cut offs and pulling out the pants—but not just any pants: this fall it’s all about trousers. A great pair of trousers can take you through your entire day, easily transitioning from office hours to nights out, and they can even be ideal for weekend street wear too. With so many ways to rock the look, it’s no wonder we’re obsessed with the trouser trend for our favorite season and have even included an extra handy Womanista Approved list to prove it.


With Sneakers
Jump on board the sneaker trend – either white or pink, take your pick! – and mix a comfy pair with your favorite trousers for the perfect weekend getup.


Make a Statement
Playing it safe puts you at risk for being boring; opt for boldly striped, fashion forward pieces that make a statement while still remaining clean, crisp and classic.

Drape a Blazer
This is the definition of street chic: wide leg, floor length trousers with a fitted blazer draped over your shoulders—office attire never looked so good.


Blue Jean Baby
Give your favorite denim a refresh; update your collection with a pair of casually chic denim trousers that can be dressed up or dressed down to fit any occasion.


Layer the Look
Keep it warm, cozy and comfy by layering your favorite chunky sweater over your softest tee, a fool-proof way to style your trousers.


Keep it Classic
When in doubt, go the classic route; a crisply pleated black trouser with cuffed ankles and a high waist pairs well with practically anything—feel free to go crazy with the accessories to amp up the look.
