THREE TRANSITIONAL ALTERNATIVES TO JEANS

Jeans. What would we do without them? Dressed up with heels or dressed down with loafers, smart skinnies or relaxed boyfriend fit, we never met a jean we didn’t love. That being said, as the weather warms up and we start to look towards spring, we’re slowly weaning ourselves off of heavier jeans and onto more spring appropriate alternatives. It’s a scary thought, we get it, so here are some suggestions to get you on your way.

CARGO TROUSERS

We blame the noughties revival, because never since the days of All Saints have utilitarian cargo trousers been quite as popular are they are this season. Fortunately, the baggy, side-pocketed styles favoured by the noughties girl band have remained in the same era as their hits, traded instead for more streamlined versions. Try yours with a white shirt, black crew neck jumper or Breton tee, opting for box-fresh trainers for off-duty afternoons or strappy heels come evening.

WIDE LEGS

There’s something about a wide leg that just screams summer. Light, breezy and capable of making a style statement with very little effort, Sarah Pacini’s wide-leg linen trousers are a lesson in minimalism. Don’t forget to play on your proportions, keeping your top half streamlined and simple, adding a wedge to lengthen those legs.

CULOTTES

There’s something about culottes that strikes fear into the hearts of many, but give them a go and you may just find yourself surprised. Not only are they one of the comfiest items of clothing you’ll ever have in your wardrobe, culottes are one of the most versatile too.
