Lockdown easing has presented us with multiple opportunities for fun, but that’s not to say it’s guaranteed. In poor weather conditions, outdoor dining is somewhat of an ordeal. And the joy of sauntering to the pub isn’t quite the same when you have to book a table for the privilege. But, regardless of whether or not you will actually enjoy yourself, at least it’s an excuse to dress for fun. On that note, here are some of our favourite printed trousers. If you’re still sulking in a pair of these, there’s no hope for you.
We adore Pleats Please Issey Miyake no matter what form it comes in, but there’s something especially delightful about these printed trousers. We’d wear them with – you guessed it – more Pleats Please Issey Miyake.
Well, we did purport that printed trousers were all about ‘fun’, and what’s funner than polka dots? Besides, the trousers themselves are by MM6 Maison Margiela. And the monochrome ensures that these are elegant polka dots, so you won’t feel too juvenile in them either.
We knew we could count on Collina Strada to give us a proper print.
Printed trousers don’t necessarily have to be ostentatious – this pair by Totême aren’t, are they? We’d even go so far as to say they straddle the ‘printed’ and ‘plain’ border.
If these Dries Van Noten trousers aren’t grabbing enough for you, there’s also a matching shirt that you can sport for additional attention-seeking.
It is quite unsurprising that Burberry should make an exceptional checked trouser.
If the aforementioned MM6 Maison Margiela polka dot trousers won’t sway you into appreciating monochrome, maybe something slightly closer to nature will: Stine Goya zebra-print trousers, to be precise. We also have a soft spot for their elasticated waistband.
House of Sunny is a sustainable clothing brand that we take issue with. The issue is that we want to buy everything they make, which isn’t exactly good for our finances. These trousers will be wonderful for our wardrobes, though, so it’s a fine balance.
Apparently ‘festival season’ is neither a place nor a time, but a pair of these Norma Kamali trousers.
No one gathers an edit of printed trousers (in the midst of spring, no less) without including floral trousers. Plus we’ll use any excuse to celebrate Rejina Pyo.
