The Simple Trouser Trend That We Saw Everywhere at London Fashion Week

It's a tale as old as time: Vogue magazine editor wears an item of clothing to fashion week; said item of clothing instantly goes out of stock online. This season, it was a pair of achingly cool tailored trousers from none other than high-street fave Uniqlo. No wonder they flew off the shelves so quickly. Sadly, the exact item in question is yet to be restocked, but I can confirm that this trouser trend extended its reach far beyond the one editor, and there were countless fashion folks who championed the slouchy style on the streets of London.

The above look from Camille Charrière is the perfect encapsulation of this new breed of tailored trousers: low-slung, wide-legged and just the slightest pooling of fabric on the floor. It has definite Annie Hall undertones. While most people chose flat shoes or very low heels to emphasise the nonchalant silhouette, it was styled in a number of different ways with simple white tees, oversized shirts, waistcoats and structured blazers.

Following the long-held reign of the super-high waist, this silhouette feels particularly fresh and undoubtedly noughties. Aside from Uniqlo, COS is currently your best bet on the high street (I have my eye on a wide-legged houndstooth pair), while on the upper end of the market, it's the likes of Victoria Beckham and ACNE that are leading the way. I also recommend you check out vintage options, particularly within menswear collections, which are packed full of high-quality yet affordable styles. Scroll down to see how the fashion pack are wearing theirs, and shop our favourite slouchy tailored trousers.

Bring colour to the slouchy-trouser trend with a pop of pink.

Sarah Harris knows the power of a simple pairing, and you don't get more classic than a white shirt and black trousers.

Slouchy trousers pair particularly well with a waistcoat, as seen on Brittany Bathgate.

I love the pairing of beige and forest green in this polished tailored getup.
