Net-a-Porter Trousers For Women
Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran design every single one of Lemaire's pieces in the heart of Paris, so it's no wonder the pared-back elegance of the city is reflected in their collections. This refined pair of wool-twill pants is cut in a cropped, wide silhouette, and impeccably finished - from the elasticated back waistband to the lining which goes all the way to the knee. Looking for a cool, modern way to dress for work? Wear this style with a blazer and mules.
Mansur Gavriel's 'Milano' pants show how beautifully designers Rachel and Floriana's 'less-is-more' approach translates from cult bags to ready-to-wear - they are part of the brand's debut clothing collection. Knitted from cream merino wool and designed without fastenings, this pair is designed to sit high on your waist and falls to a flattering wide-leg silhouette. Wear yours with matching sweater.
The best black pants are those you can see yourself wearing for everything from work and dinner dates and gallery openings, and Altuzarra's slim-leg style is just one such pair. Cut from crepe, they are slightly cropped and decorated with buttons at the cuffs - a shape and design detail that looks especially chic with mules or backless loafers.
J Brand's 'Maria' pants are crafted from plush velvet in a skinny silhouette with a classic five-pocket construction. Cut to sit high on your waist, this lustrous pair is blended with touches of stretch to ensure a close, flexible fit. Wear yours with everything from sneakers to ankle boots.
Pallas always stays true to its signature tuxedo, cleverly reworking it each season into something fresh and exciting - just like this jumpsuit. Made in Paris from black grain de poudre and satin, it has an asymmetric waistcoat-style top and neatly pressed wide-leg pants. The tapered shoulders and cutout back show just a hint of skin.
Paloma Blue founders Ariana Stein and Charlotte Lewis met in Ibiza and bonded over a mutual love of the bohemian lifestyle. Cut from lustrous silk crepe de chine, this 'Eclipse' jumpsuit is printed with stars and has waist-cinching ties. The wide-leg silhouette works just as well with slides as it does chunky platforms.
For Pre-Fall '17, Giambattista Valli explores the world of tailoring, in particular the pant suit - something the designer has perfected over the past few seasons. Part of the lineup, this silk-crepe pair is cut in a flared silhouette and decorated with the label's signature florals in pretty lilac hues. Wear them by day with the matching blouse.
Tibi's silk pants have a subtle sheen that works equally well with matte or lustrous satin tops. Printed with navy leopard spots, this ivory pair sits high on the waist and has a straight leg. Echo the brand's styling and go head-to-toe with the matching blouse.
Cut with an elasticated waist from stretchy suede, The Row's 'Athby' pants feel so comfortable and easy to wear. The cropped bootcut leg is one of our favorite shapes this season. Channel Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's relaxed style with an oversized sweater and slides.
At the weekend, there are two types of pants everyone reaches for again and again - classic jeans and cargo styles. Splendid's 'Hunter' pair belong to the latter category, and is detailed with all the pockets you'd expect. They're cut in a skinny silhouette from a very soft and comfortable army-green stretch modal-blend twill, and finished with zipped cuffs.
Marques' Almeida's red and black pants will look so cool with contrasting stripes - try monochrome to mirror the Fall '17 runway. This lustrous cotton-blend satin pair sits high on the waist and is cropped to exaggerate the flared shape.
Denim industry veterans Emily Current and Meritt Elliott used their expert knowledge of proportion and fit to design The Great's 'Skinny Armies' pants. This mid-rise pair is made from slightly stretchy brushed-twill and has two large patch pockets - a nod to military styles. We love how 'Sea of Shoes' blogger Jane Aldridge teamed hers with an oversized sweater and boots.
Embrace the ease of menswear-inspired dressing with Lanvin's straight-leg pants. They're made from vibrant red wool-twill and trimmed with black satin at the high-rise waist to emphasize the smallest part of your frame. Complete the suit by pairing it with the matching jacket, adding the label's pussy-bow blouse underneath.
J.Crew's black crepe 'Jackpot' jumpsuit is such an easy piece to dress up or down - think pumps and jewelry for the evening, and a white tee and sneakers during the day. It's slightly cropped and has a relaxed wide-leg shape. Complement the single bow-detailed strap with a statement earring on the other side.
GANNI's Pre-Fall '17 collection is inspired by Slim Aarons' iconic '50s and '60s photographs of the chic jetset lifestyle - the glamorous days when people would still get dressed up for flights. These cropped pants are made from corded lace and lined with chiffon shorts. Cut to sit high at the waist, they fall to a scalloped eyelash hem complete with grosgrain bows.
Theory reworks the classic cargo pant, relaxing and streamlining their typically structured silhouette. Cut from silk crepe de chine, this 'Hamtana' style will work with anything, but we especially like them teamed with a tucked-in blouse and slides.
Fendi's pants are woven with an intricate chevron pattern - the black and white stitching gives the illusion of traditional checked motifs from a distance. Made from wool-blend jacquard, this pair has claret chiffon trims along its high-rise waist and buckled cuffs that can be undone for a relaxed, straight-leg silhouette. Echo the Fall '17 runway and wear yours with a tucked-in blouse and red accessories.
Dolce & Gabbana's pants are cut from featherweight silk-satin that feels beautifully soft and cool against the skin. Borrowing elements from both pajama and smoking styles, this glossy pair has a comfortable elasticated waistband and crisp white piping along the sides. Try yours with a logo tee, or channel the runway with the matching shirt.
You may think Self-Portrait is all about ethereal dresses, but the Fall '17 collection shows Han Chong's fresh and feminine approach works just as well for separates. These 'Lexi' pants are cut from Prince of Wales checked fabric and paneled for a slimming effect. They have exposed zips and a waist-cinching belt punctured with grommets. Cue the runway and complement the ruffled pockets with this sweater.
Acne Studios' Pre-Fall '17 collection is inspired by Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie's '70s tailoring - Creative Director Jonny Johansson even recruited the singer to model the brand's lookbook. Made from tactile corduroy, this high-rise pair is cut for a slim fit through the knees before opening to a flared hem. Wear yours with a half-tucked sweater and white mules.
