No matter the season, no wardrobe is complete without the latest tailored, textured or trend-focused trousers.

Whether you're dressing up for the office or opting for an off-duty day look, you're sure to find your perfect fit in our roundup of the best, brightest and boldest trousers in Fenwick stores now...

The quirky culotte

 

Whether you opt for a colour full of character, a peculiar pattern or play it safe with a classic black pair, the culotte is the perfect transitional item to add to any capsule wardrobe.

These pure silk culottes from Tibi have a high waist, wide leg and pleating - perfect as a statement piece or paired with a bold necklace and heels.

 

Tibi, £525; Available at Fenwick Bond Street

The colourful cigarette

 

While fashion forecasts show that kale green is set to be the big colour for Autumn/Winter 2016, we're already seeing it pop into stores through the likes of this classic tailored cigarette shape from Paul Smith.

Drawn in at the ankle, these smart-yet-casual wool trousers are perfect paired with a white shirt for a crisp and clean look or a t-shirt for a put-together yet relaxed approach.

 

Paul Smith, £220; Available at Fenwick Kingston

The wide-leg crop

 

Give the popular 70s wide-leg trend a contemporary spin with a cute and classy cropped black trouser, the ideal partner for a smashing pair of heels.

Go for a label that focuses on shape, such as Eileen Fisher, for a design that will never go out of style.

 

Eileen Fisher, £150; Available at Fenwick Canterbury

The high-waisted jean

 

If the latest denim hitting stores is anything to go by, waist-cinching is still very much in style. We're lusting after these relaxed high-rise skinny jeans from cult London-based brand MiH, made in a soft grey faded denim that looks oh-so-comfortable (yet oh-so-flattering).

 

MiH, £225; Available at Fenwick of Bond Street and Tunbridge Wells

The cropped chino

 

Looking for the most professional way to wow with your work wardrobe? Look no further than a spring-friendly clean and crisp chino trouser.

For a modern approach to an old classic, we're opting for the chic and sleek cropped chinos from influential label of the moment Joseph.

 

Joseph, £185; Available at Fenwick Kingston

The skinny jean

 

It's the fashion trend that refuses to die, but we're perfectly okay with it.

With an emphasis on fit, you can be sure this Super Skinny style from J Brand, made of a luxe sateen, will become a favourite for any day of the week. By opting for a dark, super-fitted and stretchy skinny jean, you can make your jeans work with heels, ballet pumps or trainers. 

 

J Brand, £190; Available at Fenwick Brent Cross

The light wash jean

 

Bring a summer look into winter (and wear it through to spring) with rocker-style light wash skinny jeans. Go for a mid-rise, grey-hued, bleached and stretchy pair and style them up with a leather bomber or a blazer for a look that can take you from desk to dancefloor with minimal effort. 

We love the smiley pocket button on this bohemian pair from Maison Scotch - it's sure to keep spirits high until the dreary weather brightens up...

 

Maison Scotch, £105; Available at Fenwick Brent Cross

 

The grey jean

 

Stone grey is the next big thing for SS16 and, with easy to wear skinny jeans in the mix, is sure to continue into Autumn/Winter.

For a super-casual, comfortable and off-duty denim staple, opt for a mid-rise pair, such as our favourite fit from Frame.
