Paperbag trousers are great pant style options to wear that are versatile as well as flattering. High-waisted, gathered and belted, its style is instantly recognisable. With different cuts available, you can pick from a cropped finish, tapered or even loose fit to compliment your style and shape. Their high-waist cinched-in detail can hide a multitude of sins and they look great dressed up or down.
In summertime, a linen paperbag trouser makes a great option, while in winter a more tailored piece is easy to style. Like this featured look that pairs a simple black roll-neck top with light blue paperbag trousers. The trousers stand out beautifully against the all black outfit, creating a timeless outfit idea. But you can also style it fabulously by switching out the blazer with a classic denim jacket.
For a more complimentary finish, paperbag trousers are great to wear with fitted tops. Great options include crop tops, camisoles, light knits and the classic roll-neck tops.
Roll-neck tops are great versatile pieces in the colder months and can transition even the most summery pieces, as seen in how to wear a cut-out dress in winter. But that doesn’t mean they’re only limited to wear in winter, because they’re also fabulous transitional tops to style in spring and autumn too. The best transitional roll-neck tops are lighter in fabric than your thick knit options and don’t have as much loose fabric around the neck, like the one featured in how to brighten up your winter wardrobe. This works as a great complement to paperbag trousers as it avoids a top heavy look.
A summer daytime alternative to this look is to style the paperbag trousers with a white cotton t-shirt tucked in and cute sandals. While for a summer evening, switch them out for a black silk camisole, blazer and strappy heels.
