There is no piece of clothing I love as much as black wide-leg trousers; in particular, my pair from COS. They are the epitome of timeless style, relevant for every season, perfect for every outing and deserving of a place in every capsule wardrobe. Needless to say, I am pretty obsessed with them.
Tailoring is something I’m gripped by year in, year out. And black wide-leg trousers are something everyone will always need. They cross the borders of occasion, from corporate work events to even, dare I say, date-night attire. The styling possibilities are endless, making them a worthy investment piece. Although tailored trousers were once deemed a traditionally masculine silhouette, the cut of wide-leg trousers is undeniably elegant, elongating the leg and adding dimension to the waist.
You can find this staple piece in the capsule line-ups of most brands. The Olsen twins dominated the luxury market with The Row’s infinite iterations of the shape. But I would suggest that the COS trousers give tailoring sovereignty at a more affordable price point. In my opinion, black wide-leg trousers are the pinnacle of chicness that’s accessible to all. This COS pair features a fabric composition of 100% pure traceable wool, while its internal makeup of a concealed, hook and bar closure on the waistline makes it versatile for both low-slung and high-waist looks. Both functional and flattering, it is everything a girl could want.
