Last year it was bright, dopamine-inducing colours, and it seems 2023's antithesis to drab dressing is statement silver. Once reserved for the festive season, the rulebook has been ripped up thanks to the likes of Chanel, Gucci and Versace dominating the runways with the metallic hue.
More specifically, silver trousers are the super cool piece that’s been seen all over our Instagram fashion feeds. They might appear hard to style, but we’ve seen them paired to perfection with cosy knits and relaxed-fit shirts. And of course they look amazing with bralets and blazers for an evening out.
How to style silver trousers
Jessica Skye (@_jessicaskye) styles her Amy Lynn silver trousers with a cosy black knit from Arket and black strappy kitten heels from & Other Stories - the perfect evening ensemble this autumn. She advises to take your usual size or size down if you're between sizes.
Polly Sayer (@pollyvsayer) shows us how to style them off-duty, also wearing her ROTATE Birger Christensen silver trousers (currently sold out) with a black sweater, but completing the look with adidas Samba trainers and a longline wool coat.
If you prefer a brighter ensemble, Frankie Bridge makes a case for silver trousers and a red sweater. We've also seen them look incredible with knits in a hot pink hue.
Kim (@keybykim) proves they can also be worn as part of a tonal outfit, styling her Zara silver trousers with a matching metallic top. She accessorised with black heels and a Jacquemus handbag.
