All I Want to Wear Are Trousers, and I Love These 20 High-Street Options

Tailored trousers have come a long way from their reputation as the obligatory officewear piece or, dare I say it, their longstanding affinity with schoolwear *shudders*. We’ve all been there, forcibly scouring the high street as pre-teens for less-than-inspiring bootcut slacks. Now, however, they’re hailed as a hero piece—a wardrobe essential we’ve welcomed into our adult uniform with open arms. The circular nature of fashion has resulted in tailored trousers gaining some traction over the last couple of years. Through pop culture icons such as Diane Keaton in everything from Annie Hall to Baby Boom, Melanie Griffith in Working Girl and, of course, Princess Di circa the 1990s, it’s clear to see the power of a woman in a strong tailored look through the eyes of fashion history.

30 Dresses I’ve Found That Are Perfect for Working From Home

When people ask me what I did over the course of lockdown, I can proudly say that I’ve perfected the cinnamon bun (it’s all in the proving), learnt how to use a sewing machine, and I have also managed to create the ideal working from home wardrobe.

There is, of course, one big box that any home office frock must tick: it has to have a bit of give. While I don’t imagine any of us are reaching for the Hervé Leger, some fabrics and silhouettes can be a little restrictive and uncomfortable so when I go for a dress to wear all day at my desk, I need it to be comfortable. That being said, it als...
