Classic black trousers are a timeless style staple that belong in everyone’s wardrobe. But which shape is best?

While it might seem like a straight forward decision, investing in a pair of black trousers can be a bit more troublesome than simply picking out your size. With a vast array of shapes and cuts available, deciding which style is for you can require a bit more thought.

 The 7/8th length has become popular over the last couple of years and is a firm favourite amongst fashion followers who love the elongating effects of flashing your ankles. This tailored style is a great way to add a modern twist on classic smart looks and can be teamed with heels and a button up shirt for an instant office-wear hit.

They also work great for more laid back looks. For effortless chic and classic Française style try teaming with a Breton stripe T-shirt and cute ballet flats.

Perfect as part of a suit, try mixing and matching and team with a contrasting colour on top to balance out the flare.
