Formerly found securing track pants almost exclusively, the drawstring fastening is now tying some of this season’s most wanted trousers. It’s a cool development, not least because it makes those pairs much more flexible. You can wear them tight or loose, on the waist or lower slung, and there’s plenty of flair to be added knotting or bowing the strings.
Exceptional androgynous silhouettes are Haider Ackermann’s forte, as evidenced by these dressy joggers in the colour du jour. The boyish cut, in the most girlish shade of all, is just slouchy enough and evening worthy thanks to the lustrous satin.
Sporty rather than romantic running down the legs of Phillip Lim’s statement joggers, don’t these ruffles take this style to a decorative new level and inject a little femininity? They also add to the leg-lengthening effect of the vertical stripes.
Of all the hippyish pyjama style pants around, Talitha’s vivid prints and Indian spirit set these ones comfortably apart. And they’re super versatile too as blue goes with neutrals and brights alike. Let them sing by keeping accompaniments simple.
You’ll never be overdressed in this wear-anywhere Alexander Wang pair. The delicate lace trim, along with the drawstring, are the sophisticated touches that bring this otherwise classic style bang up to date. Swap your LBD for these.
