I’m usually not a fan of wide-leg trousers on myself. However, last year I purchased this pair in chocolate brown from Arket and gave the style a go. I’m glad I did because this particular pair of trousers is not overly wide, so it is easy to wear if you are not used to wide-leg trousers. Furthermore, the high-waist gives the illusion of longer legs, and combined with the loose-cut legs accentuated by the front pleats, there’s a subtle air of relaxed sophistication.
In terms of fit, I’m wearing size 34. I’m on the short side at 164cm tall; consequently, I found these trousers look more flattering on me when worn with heels. However, they would look great with sneakers for a more casual weekend/off-duty outfit if you are taller.
