Totally risking the fury of many fashion enthusiasts here but I gotta say this–I don’t understand jeans. Actually, I kinda hate them. In fact, I haven’t worn a pair in almost half a decade now. Seriously, I kid you not. Irrespective of the silhouette or fit, I find the entire idea of denim just too uncomfortable and confining. This explains why while I might have outwardly cried foul during the entire athleisure phase of 2020, I was actually quite okay (read, super comfortable) with it all. Snug tights and relaxed Pjs–what’s not to like?
Thankfully, the fashion community is finally listening to me and seriously considering relaxed trousers as a fashion staple this season. The 70s inspired, flared and relaxed trousers trend is here to stay with its modern iterations taking over the scene. Consequently, the trending pants right now are big, bold, bright, and sometimes white.
Well, just in case you are skeptical about my claims (given my bias against the jeans), you might want to know that our B-town fashionistas have fully embraced the trend.
You are seriously missing out on the 2021 fashion scene if flared/ relaxed trousers aren’t your top-of-the-pile picks right now. Hear us ya girls– your denim drawer is asking for an overhaul and here is some fashion inspiration to get you started on the process:
Gotta start with Kiara Advani for she is fiercely championing the trend currently. From straight ruched picks to full-blown satin palazzo fits, the actress is living in her comfortable best right now. The tip that we are picking for wearing the relaxed-fit trousers from Kiara would be to go bold and beautiful. From jewel hues to satin fabrics, the world is your oyster here. However, remember to go easy and solid with your waist up separates when you opt for a pop of vibrant colours waist down.
In case you might not be too much into overly relaxed trousers, Shilpa Shetty here gives us some tailored fit inspiration. We love how her off-white trousers are fresh, sharp, and yet so relaxed. Also, this silhouette has to be your go-to pick whenever you make it back to work this year.
If you haven’t caught the drift yet–the metallic trend from the 80s is making a swift comeback this year. We are guessing it is the outcome of the pandemic, “a roaring Twenties” kind of a situation here. Well, whatever the reason be, don’t be too shocked and remember to gasp in absolute awe when you see the fashion girls sauntering around in metallic trousers. Shanaya here gives us a feeler and we are kinda digging the tapered, billowy fit of her pants. HBY?
Now, your take on this look would have to do a lot with how much discomfort you are willing to endure in the name of fashion. The thing is that faux leather is quite a trend right now (blame Kim K) and well, relaxed trousers in the material are a different ball game altogether. That said, this trend is definitely not for the weak-hearted and in case you want to give it a try, do take inspiration from Deepika Padukone’s forest green pants.
Understated is not how Nora Fatehi does her affairs and pictures from her latest relaxed-fit trouser outfits are proof enough. Well, in case you want to go all out and aren’t shy of playing with colours, prints, and patterns, we suggest that you go the co-ord way this season.
So fam which one of these relaxed-fit trouser styles are you investing in?
