How to Style Trouser Jeans

Trouser jeans are the more polished wide-leg.

If you love “wearing the pants” (i.e. the in-charge feeling a wide leg jean gives you), then get even bossier with trouser jeans. The long line and clean front pleating of this style is a done deal for daytime, but also has a softer side, seamlessly transitioning to happy hour and the dog park.

Build out a suiting look (but cooler) by pairing trouser jeans with a graphic blazer and easy knit tank. The clean length is serious, so have some fun by adding a statement shoe with a strong accent and—BAM!—you’re good to take names all day long.

Play off the rigidity of this style with a super feminine top, like this ruched tank. Then, add a low-heel pump in a bright color that peeks out from under the hem. Try matching your lip shade to that poppy hue for an extra power punch.

Who says tailoring has to be all done up? This style can carry you into the weekend if coupled with a retro sneaker and easy cotton blouse. And here's a fit tip: You'll get more mileage out of these jeans if the length is versatile enough to wear with a low heel and a sneaker; take this into consideration when tailoring.
