ELLE Staple: The Perfect Pair of Tailored Trousers for Holidays

Tailored to your aesthetic

Let’s face it, we’ve all had a moment pretending we’re Blake Lively in A Simple Favor when wearing a pair of tailored trousers. It comes with the territory of adorning typical work attire. But ask yourself one question; do these trousers have to be worn solely at the office? Our answer is a sure no! 

It’s the festive season and it’s summer so our ELLE staple today is a pair of Classic Wide Leg Trousers in a light cinnamon hue. Here's how to wear:

Tailored Wide Leg, R1 299, Witchery

A Walk On the Beach

Nothing beats a casual stroll on the beach during those late afternoons in December. Our best look? Try this tailored favourite with an oversized shirt, fedora, tortoise shell slides and a pair of matching geometric shades.

Cocktail Hour

Slip into something a little more sparkly for a cocktail date at your favourite spot. Pair these pants with a semi-sheer sequin-covered tank-top for that demure romanticism. Looking to break away from the traditional evening looks? Try a white mule, statement earrings and a pop of colour with this burgundy crossbody bag.

Out and About with Bae

Monochrome with hints of hue, the perfect casual look for a day out with your significant other. Whether it's grabbing a quick bite or shopping, try a T-shirt with these super trendy platform Converse sneakers, a structured tote (add that pop of colour for some authenticity) and pair of bold resin earrings.

A Trip to the Organic Market

Fun in the early morning sun calls for everything airy in colour and in texture. With a break away from the usual neutral colour palette, the powder blue tinge plays off the cinnamon shade perfectly. Pair the clothes with a pair of flat mules and a structured tote crossbody.

A Music Event

The festive season is about striking that balance between being the ultimate social butterfly and taking some time off to focus on yourself. This ensemble is purely aimed for the "social you" and is aimed at one of the best events: the live music gig.

Visiting a Tourist Attraction

Doing some site-seeing this holiday? Best be prepared, and that means wearing comfortable shoes and a breezy top. Look into investing in a backpack, this makes it easier to carry all of your touring necessities.
