When thinking of the trouser one may have a few thoughts come to mind such as menswear, business, and workwear. Personally each time I think of the trouser I immediately think Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face wearing the iconic Cigarette Trouser.
Back in 1957 when Funny Face was released women rarely donned the trouser, making Hepburn’s character quite fashion forward for her time. Many to this day still think of trousers as menswear and fortunately for us in 2019 trousers are here to stay and menswear is a trend we all secretly love.
Personally, I feel trousers can be such a stand out transition piece. A clothing item so simple yet so complex it can take you from the office straight to a night out with a few simple steps. At the office modesty is important, think loafers and a nice blouse but the second you leave, walk right out of those loafers and into your favorite heels.
Fashion is ever changing, which is why the post important accessory to wear with your trousers is confidence. If Audrey Hepburn wasn’t confident there is no way she would have become such a fashion icon and remain one to this day.
So here is to redefining the trouser, realizing that menswear is great but in reality the trouser is sexy as long as you choose to pair it with confidence and cute shoes.
