It’s hard to believe it now, but back in the 1920s pioneering women fought hard for the right to wear trousers. These days trousers are so much a part of our everyday wardrobe that we couldn’t imagine life without them. For trousers to look good, they have to be both fashionable and well-fitting, and at Navabi we’ve got heaps of fantastic styles for you to choose from.
When they’re tailored to our leg shape, trousers have the ability to enhance our natural features to make us feel comfortable and confident. There’s a fit for everyone, with tight trousers to show off shapely legs, and flowing Marlene trousers for effortless style. Jeans are in a league of their own as the ultimate timeless fashion icon, and then there’s chinos, baggy trousers, cargo pants and even jumpsuits to choose from.
We know how important material, cut and fit are to a good pair of trousers, and that’s why we’ve consciously chosen brands like Kj, who we know get it right every time. With Navabi, finding the right pair of trousers needn’t be a challenge.
They’re so much a part of our everyday lives that the question of how to wear trousers is the source of endless debate and creativity. A well-fitting pair of trousers is one of the most frequently worn items in our wardrobes, and the best thing about them is that you can constantly reinvent the same pair of trousers by wearing them with different tops, shoes and accessories to create a new look each time.
There’s no single answer to how trousers should fit, as there are so many different styles and they all fit slightly differently. Slim fit trousers are more figure-hugging, which makes them great for highlighting your curves - they look fantastic with a tailored blazer and crisp white shirt. A sharp tailored trouser suit is a must-have for the office, giving you a confident look that shows you mean business. Pair your trouser suit with killer heels for a feminine take on this traditionally masculine outfit.
Leggings are a tighter fit still, hugging your contours from waist to ankles, but their stretchy material means they’re still comfy and easy to move in. Wide leg trousers may have more material around the legs, but you’ll still want them to fit snuggly around your waist and bottom. Plus size harem pants and culottes have a much looser fit, and are usually crafted from flowing fabrics that make them incredibly comfortable to move in.
Then there’s the question of how long to wear your trousers. There are long trousers to suit every body shape, but cropped trousers and capris suit some women better than others, as they appear to shorten your legs. If you’re planning to wear some trendy capris, pair them with a shorter top and cropped jacket to lengthen the legs, and wear a belt. A tapered style will maintain the shape of your calves, while a pair of high heels will counter the shortening effect.
We’re often asked what trousers to wear with ankle boots, and the answer is that straight cut trousers are the perfect match. You don’t even need to worry about how trousers should sit on shoes, as the right trouser length will naturally sit well over your shoes without trailing on the ground or stopping short of your footwear. When you order, bear in mind how trousers are measured: around the waist and down the inside leg.
