Trousers are a year-round wardrobe staple and one that British fashion types certainly don’t have autonomy over. Still, after reviewing six months worth of the impressive street style imagery we’ve captured by way of London pavements, I can discern one thing: The capital’s most adept dressers know how to style their trousers.
Between puddle pants and cargoes, loose-fit denim and tailoring, London girls have embraced 2022’s penchant for trousers like no one else. It helps that they loan themselves to our climate, where, even in the peak of summer, there remains an omnipresent chill in the air, particularly after a certain point in the evening. Looking back at our photo archives, trouser outfits were just as predominant in the month of July as they were during our October session, showcasing the trouser’s perennial versatility all the more. So as we head into winter, where getting dressed feels more like a chore with each passing dark morning, I thought, why not reacquaint ourselves with some impressive London street style trouser outfits to inspire our wares for the coming months?
Below, I’ve chronicled the best of the best, shopping out each trouser style as I go. Handily, you should be able to re-create the majority of these outfits using items you already own, making them cost-effective to boot. So without further ado, scroll on to see the best trouser looks from Who What Wear’s London street style series this year.
