Instead of Jeans, Fashion People Are Turning Their Attention to This Classy Trouser Trend


In my time as a fashion editor I’ve come to rely on a few styling tricks that help to ease the winter to spring transition. Up there with swapping my raincoat for a relaxed quilted jacket and exchanging my boots for colourful trainers, each season I reintroduce the cream trouser trend back into my rotation as an easy way to instantly brighten up some of my wardrobe staples.

Whilst similar to the white trousers that often come to the fore in summer, I find the cream trouser trend slightly more relaxed and far more versatile. Although bright white shades work perfectly with other statement tones such as cobalt blue, fuchsia pink and letterbox red, a cream trouser wears well with the in-between shades that dominate most wardrobes.

Offering a fresh alternative to denim, the lighter weight trousers move beautifully as you walk, creating a breezy and relaxed silhouette. Wearing well with the deep navy, dark grey, and rich burgundy colours that are pillars in my wardrobe, the cream trouser trend helps to add lightness and dimension to a darker palette. When summer time comes around, I love to use cream trousers to anchor my looks, styling them with light peach, butter yellow and earthy colours—there really isn’t anything they won’t go with.

Luckily for me, high street and designer brands have caught on to the enduring appeal of the cream trouser trend. Often designed in wide-leg cuts, the trouser has seeped into so many of my favourite stores. Read on to discover the cream trousers we’re shopping for spring right now.
