Blame it on cold winter days, or unwaxed legs, but you can’t really wear dresses and skirts every single day no matter how much of a girly girl you are. Trousers are a definite wardrobe staple for men as well as women and can be worn for almost any occasion. The right pair of pants are comfy, practical and incredibly chic. We give you 9 kinds of trousers every girl should have in her closet at any given time. Whether you dress them up or down - you’re guaranteed some effortless fabulousness.
9 Kinds Of Trousers You Should Have In Your Closet
1. The Everyday Denims
You probably love the acid wash fad and may have 30 pairs of jeans, but this is the pair that you always seem to reach for and can be worn with anything, anywhere. Not too high-waisted nor too low, a simple pair of dark denims with a uniform wash that fits you like a glove is an absolute essential and will come to your rescue in the day or night, when you don’t know what to wear.

2. Cropped Trousers
A well-fitting pair of cropped pants can give you a super-model effect and help you fake longer legs. Just make sure that they aren’t very baggy and flatter you. They can be worn with silk tops for the night or a simple white tee for some casual chic. These pants look fantastic when paired with heels, ballet flats and sandals.

3. Structured Leggings
A structured pair of leggings or jean leggings (jeggings) bring a more polished touch to a regular pair of casual leggings and are as comfy. Plus, you don’t need to wear them with only long tops since they don’t bring attention to your crotch and butt like a regular pair of leggings. Get them in bright colours, prints, with faux leather details or a classic black – you can have numerous pairs. They look great, can be worn anywhere and are so comfy you will want to wear them everyday.

4. Boyfriend Jeans
Whether you want to add an androgynous edge to your look or are just aiming at some easy style, a fun pair of boyfriend jeans is a must-have. They’re on-trend, oh-so-comfy and can be paired with simple tees and jackets as well as dressy tops. You can also fold them up to your ankle and wear them with heels for a sexy touch. Just make sure not to pair them with tops that are distressed or ripped as well to risk looking shabby.

The bottom line is that they are super flattering, can make your legs look longer than ever and can do wonders for your confidence. As long as they fit well- snug on top but pool over at the bottom, you can definitely score some major style points.
