How do you decide whether to wear trousers or skirts to a particular event or season can be very difficult, something that is appropriate for everyday might not be for work and vice versa. Hopefully, this post will help give you some clarity about what you can wear and when.
I will be breaking this down into sections of what kinds of trousers can be worn at different times of year and for different events so you can make your mind up about whether you’d prefer to wear trousers or skirts.
Summer – there are many different styles of summer trousers from culottes to cuffed joggers or even just a comfy pair of mom jeans, it is important to think about breathable and comfy clothes when it comes to the sticky heat of summer.
Winter – wearing a pair of jeans would be the best fit for this time of year. Whether it is skinny, flared, straight, or any other kind they will go with jumpers and long-sleeved tops for this time of year. You could even wear a pair of leggings if you find these more comfortable than a pair of jeans.
Evening – you want to have smarter casual look for an evening out, so going for a pair of skinny jeans, culottes, or perhaps some capri pants if you were going to a more upmarket establishment would be fashionable and fabulous. Wearing a great pair of trousers will make you the classiest person in any room!
Work – your work attire does not need to be drab and boring, but it can really show off your personality and professionalism. A pair of Capri pants, or long straight leg trousers would really present a professional and classy look, which will let everyone know that you mean business.
The amazing thing about skirts is that they can be fun and flirty as well as classy and professional, it’s all a matter of what to wear and when.
Summer – this is the time of year where you can be fun with your clothes and feel elegant and beautiful. Wearing a midi or maxi skirt, a playful tiered skirt, or perhaps a sophisticated A-line mini skirt might spruce up your look, so you are ready to catch those summer rays.
Winter – any skirt you wear in winter should be paired with a thick or thin pair of tights, depending on the temperature on that day. A gorgeous pencil, box pleat, or wrap skirt would look perfect in winter with a polo jumper tucked in. You will look super sophisticated as well as being warm from the cold season.
Evening – there are endless number of styles that you could wear in the evening if you wanted to look flirty or classy. These range from trumpet, godet, sarong skirts as a flirty look or sarong, wrap, tulip, midi skirts for a classier and more sophisticated look. You might even want to wear a slit or cowl skirt, which adds a combination of the classy and flirty both together for a perhaps fun night out with the girls!
Work – you want to have an appropriate skirt for work, one that is long enough and not too tight so you don’t dress inappropriately for work. I would recommend a pencil or wrap skirt which would provide the length but also go well with a cardigan or blazer for a smart professional look. The key is long skirts that still make you feel confident and smart in the workplace.
Whether you wear trousers or skirts it’s super important to recognize that it is whatever makes you feel the most comfortable in your skin. If you feel overexposed wearing a skirt, then wear some trousers if you want to show off some leg then wear a skirt! There is no shame in expressing yourself differently to other people, but I hope this post has given you ideas for all year round looks!
