If there is one place we can comfortably say Celine, The Row and Sonia Rykiel have met it would definitely be this FW14 with the introduction of the wool trouser trend. For those of you that have struggled with how to pull of wool trousers, these designers have done you a major favour by making wool trousers the next big thing in our winter wardrobe.
The most important thing when aiming for wool trousers is to understand that there is a very thin line between looking chic and looking like you are wearing pyjama pants; how to avoid that? – never ever pair wool trousers with a casual top! When trying to pull off this look keep in mind that you are aiming for a full chic look – wool trousers and an elegant dressy top and blazer, or better yet a matching wool sweater is your way to go; perhaps a classic silk shirt? Since the pants are already baggy, I would aim for a top that is more on the fitted side but not too tight as to avoid looking too big from the bottom.
As for the shoes, I would either go for one of two extremes; a pair of brand new trainers possibly with some embellishment, or a pair of classic stilettos; we all know you can never go wrong with stilettos!
To devour more on this look check out Zara, Top Shop and Mango; they never fail to satisfy our fashion desires!
