Street Style: The wide-legged trouser gets a nod of approval
Stash the stovepipes
Slim-fitted trousers have long reigned supreme in the paradigm of menswear, with style conscious gents eschewing the wider cuts from their wardrobes since the dawn of the new millenium, courtesy of Hedi Slimane. However, the seemingly archaic relaxed silhouette is currently making its rounds amongst the style savvy in the form of pleat-front trousers and denim — could the staying power of the stovepipe be waning? Apart from the street style veterans championing the cut, it also had its runway moments in the recent spring/summer 2016 collections; check out Berluti, Yohji Yamamoto and E. Tautz to name a few.
After spending years with your pins in pants of the slim variety, take cues from these gents and opt for voluminous trousers matched with a complementary semi form-fitting top.
