If you prefer to take your style cues from the boys this season, you’ll be delighted at all the new options stepping onto the scene. Looking for a wide-leg, high waisted trouser that is ideally suited for St. Tropez style? Or perhaps a sharp, satin cigarette pant with requisite tuxedo side stripe for a city ceremony? How about a femme-fatal version cut all in lace? Check, check and check. Or, if you’ve got the fashion cred, perhaps a jumpsuit is the look for you.
Whichever style you choose, don’t forget that tailoring is key for a formal trouser. If there are pockets, they should lay flat and not stand away at the hips. The waistband should fit easily just below the waist. The leg should skim the thigh--not strangle it--and the length should cover your shoe it you opt for a high heel, or lightly break if you’re going brogue.
