Make Like Mollie King In AW’s Biggest Trouser Trend

We’re loving Mollie King‘s laid-back evening look from last night. The Saturdays singer headed out in London in a simple white tee and classic courts, but her statement culottes had us crushing.

The ’70s-inspired trend has been going strong since summer, and it shows no sign of abating for autumn.

As well as being a street style staple at the moment, in the celeb world, everyone from Rita Ora to Victoria Beckham have put their spin on the trend.

And right now, culottes are sweeping the high street, and they’re a seriously hard-working wardrobe staple.

Try dressing them down for day with a fine knit and brogues or go glam by evening and pair them with chunky heels and an A-line top.

For the office, channel VB by wearing with a high-neck tank top layered over a shirt – and don’t forget your heels.

If you’re worried about the breezy fit making you look swamped, just remember to make your waist the focal point – stick to structured tops, tuck in a fine knit or belt them to accentuate your proportions.

When it comes to shoes, stick to ankle-flashing styles or leg-lengthening heels to ensure your pins look long and lean.

In terms of picking the perfect pair, go for a sleek satin like Mollie for smarter vibes or try a leather for a tougher feel.

Or if you want to make a statement then a printed pair are the way to go – we love Topshop’s Bambi print version. Shop our top pick below.
