4 Ways To Wear Drawstring Trousers


A few years ago, a tailored drawstring trouser was an oxymoron. Today, this hybrid style has proven itself to be a valuable alternative to jeans or trackies. Endlessly versatile and easy to wear, they’re especially good in navy. Here are four ways to try the trend.

Look 1

The key to this look is layering. A denim shirt ensures the outfit doesn’t look too casual. Wear it unbuttoned to show the grey tee underneath and sling over a bomber jacket in a textured fabric like wool. Finish with all-white leather high-tops.

Look 2

Not just for off-duty, drawstring trousers can be incorporated into a smarter outfit. Keep the rest of the look simple by choosing a plain tee and white sneakers, and wear with an unstructured blazer. Smart accessories will elevate the look even further.

Look 3

Drawstring trousers are perfect with weekend wardrobe heroes such as a workman’s jacket, grey cotton tee and trainers. Add some texture to your outfit with a thick, knitted beanie hat.

Look 4

A roll-neck knit keeps these relaxed trousers from looking too sloppy. A finer fabric like cashmere will look cool, while opting for something chunkier will look more contemporary. Layer up with a heavy tailored overcoat to complete your outfit.
