A good pair of trousers can be the stylish alternative to a skirt or jeans on a day away from work. But how can you give them an edge and avoid stepping out looking like you’re on your way to a meeting rather than a super-cool get-together? Here, with the aid of these stylish Instagrammers, we give you a helping hand.



ASOS' mag coordinator Debbie is killing this colourful trouser look, offsetting the brightness of the bottom half with a seriously cool off-the-shoulder white shirt.

You can find some similar here.

Jealous, much? This shot of Megan gives us envy from all sides, *especially *with that Santorini backdrop. These vertically-striped trousers look super airy, and she’s teamed them with a lowkey strappy top to keep it simple.

The trousers are from Goldie London, you can find a variation here.

Fashion blogger Alice Catherine's polka dot trousers are just so cute, and perfect paired with those Birkenstock-style sandals.

Zara have a similar pair here.

5. @way.elle

Is there actually anything much cooler than sticking a pair of clean white trainers on the bottom of a nice smart outfit? Nope, sorry. This is the quickest, coolest way to de-office your trousers.

We love these grey trousers with your fave white trainers to finish the look.

6. @ASOS_shope

This ‘grammer wins everything for this super cheerful look. The palm-printed trousers paired with the off-the-shoulder top scream summer holidays, and the white sandals keep everything super smart. SO cute.

Check out some cute palm print trousers here.

6. @hannahfgale

A good pair of black trousers will sort you out for all occasions, and this pairing with strappy wedges is everything.

Check out these flared black trousers from ASOS.

7. @fashioncanadians

Alright, it might not be quite cold enough to pull this off yet, but you just wait! These simple grey tailored trousers with shiny black brogues are so simple; add in that coat and you’re basically winning autumn.

These grey trousers from Zara are ideal.
