Street Style Outfits Have Spoken—This Trend Is Already Winning for Autumn

·3-min read

My obsession with relaxed tailoring reached an all-time high after I spotted the outfit trend that's really taking off recently: wide-leg pants. While it's a trend that has been on the rise for some time now, you actually can't ignore the impact it has been making. The street style outfits from Copenhagen Fashion Week really cemented the trend, and I'm calling it out as a key buy for fall.

The wide-leg pants we're seeing have really relaxed silhouettes and long hemlines. Fashion insiders are pairing them with everything from crochet tanks and crop tops to matching blazers and bold accessories, so if you're looking for inspiration for how to wear them, there's no shortage of cool ideas. Here, see how the fashion set is wearing wide-leg pants and shop my edit of pieces to test-drive the fall 'fits for yourself.

While crochet might make you think of summer, this outfit proves that you can transition the knit tanks to fall by pairing them with wide-leg trousers.

Shop the look:

Mango Openwork Knit Cotton Top (£13)

& Other Stories Wide Pleated High Waist Trousers (£75)

Arket Flatform Thong Sandals (£125)

Upsized proportions make this vest-and-trouser pairing feel so on-trend and just plain cool. I want to replicate this look from head to toe.

Shop the look:

Zara Vest With Slits (£50)

Mother Wide-Leg Jeans (£358)

Dora Teymur Stainless Strappy Sandals (£340)

Saturated shades are going to be huge this autumn. There's simply no denying it. If you're wondering how to pull them off, go for a matching suit in relaxed proportions.

Shop the look:

Zara Linen Blend Printed Cuff Blazer (£50)

Zara Linen Blend Wide Leg Pants (£30)

& Other Stories Simple Chain Necklace (£23)

For something that reads as polished, start with brown suiting and add a subtle pop of colour with a bright button-down top. Oh, don't forget the tote bag.

Shop the look:

Who What Wear Collection Sade Button-Down Collared Shirt (£91)

Haight Vanessa Crepe Wide Leg Pants (£233)

Hereu Calella Leather-Trimmed Organic Cotton Tote ($321)

Another way to get in on the saturated-shade trend? Build out a neutral look, then add shoes and a bag in a vibrant shade like orange—a colour that's a personal favourite of mine right now.

Shop the look:

Reformation Earl Pant (£180)

Jacquemus Le Chiquito Leather Tote (£385)

Zara Low Heeled Crossed Leather Sandals (£28)

If you like to keep things simple, which is how I usually approach most of my outfits, I think it's key to pay attention to proportions. Wide-leg trousers are the piece that is really making this look feel fresh for autumn.

Shop the look:

Who What Wear Collection Kia Ribbed Bodysuit (£73)

Pixie Market Beige Cotton Wide Leg Chinos (£125)

Prada Point-Toe Ankle Boots (£790)

Reformation Trolley Coat (£175)

If you don't already own a ribbed bra top, now is the time to get one in your wardrobe. It's the perfect piece to wear with a pantsuit.

Shop the look:

ASOS Design Jersey Suit Shacket (£32)

ASOS Design Jersey Suit Wide Dad Track Pants (£16)

Skims Stretch Rib Bralette (£39)

Arket Buckled Leather Slides (£135)
