Style Roundup: 6 Classic & Casual Ways to Style Your Trousers

Skirts are great, and dresses are fun, but when you find an awesome pair of trousers you can use for both work and play, you wouldn't want to wear anything else.

Trousers have been around since time immemorial - probably our favorite closet staple by far, simply because of how it can effortlessly elevate any look. While it can give a professional tune to what you're wearing, that doesn't mean it should be locked up in exile until your next corporate meeting. These ladies show us exactly that - here are six classic and casual ways to style our current closet fave:

Keeping it classic and cool, Jeanne complements her neutral colored trousers with a loose collared shirt. What we love most: the pastel yellow shirt gives this outfit a pop of color, without breaking away from a clean, minimalist (and not to mention, comfy!) look. Like Jeanne, bring life and personality to this classic pairing by wearing your solids with your favorite prints.

We're absolutely in love with the boss babe vibes we're getting from Ruth's ensemble! These loose-fit lavender trousers and blazer may look like a set, but turn out to be separate awesome thrift finds. The blazer + trousers combo already scream powerful corporate girl, but buying (or at least making them look like) a matching set add that cuteness factor.

We are vibing this hot and unbothered look Paowi is serving us - she is looking like an ultimate cool girl from head to toe. Accessorizing, especially if you're one to stick to solids and neutrals, is key to adding character to your overall look. What was a simple turtleneck-and-trousers pairing is now our weekday brunch mood, thanks to those tinted sunnies and statement belt buckle. It's these simple accents that tie this entire outfit together.

Trousers for work are a given, but they're definitely still a contender when you're out to play. Karen pairs her plaid trousers with a cami and some nice looking kicks. What's great about this look is that it's effortless, and can easily make its way into your everyday ensembles. Be sure to get ankle-cut trousers or to cuff the hems, when sporting sneakers, a.k.a. your highlight and definite statement piece in this kind of outfit.

Paula looks as sweet as a summer's day with this clean, casual look; her bright yellow leather jacket being a definite eye-catcher (those fur-lined mules come a close second!). Like Paula, never be afraid to play with bold color choices. This look is definitely another good example of mixing classic pieces with bold statement wear. We'd honestly cop each piece separately and as a whole!

Cypress adds sizzle and spice to those corporate trousers by pairing it with a sweetheart-cut tube and a statement belt. This look is a definite go-to for outings that are casual, but call for that extra oomph. Fitted tops are great for flare, high-waisted, or loose-cut trousers, and this look is clearly a 10/10.

Trousers come in all these different prints and cuts. With all the ways to style them, your closet should definitely make room for more than one. Make this closet staple your weapon of choice for your everyday power strut.
