The most comfortable garments for the daywear and the evening wear, the trousers, for the spring summer 2019 are colored with funny in many shades, prints and particular effects. From the cycling-style shorts, to the super close-fitting leggings 80s style or to the tailored pants that find again the flared and belle-bottoms lines, the trousers are the protagonists of the season.
Close-fitting or colonial, here how to wear the summer shorts
Among the most particular trends seen in the fashion shows of the spring summer 2019 regarding women’s short trousers, there’s surely the return of the cycling short, very fitted to the body and made both in stretch fabric, cotton or even linen. Off-White, Blumarine and Salvatore Ferragamo propose it in many shades that go from the neon colors to warm tones of orange, but the most particular thing is the way to wear it. To make it less sporty, the trendiest fashion designers combined the cycling short to tailored jackets, trench coats and oversize crochet cotton sweaters. The most classic short trousers are inspired by colonial look, like those of Alberta Ferretti and Alexa Chung, or by holiday’s mood, like for the models by Valentino, Moschino e Stella McCartney. It’s a revival of Fifties, with lines that arrive at half thigh and that can be matched with the ultra-flat sandals or with large heel so fashionable this summer.
The casual and sporty trousers choose a relaxed mood and comfy fabrics
Among the casual trousers and the tracksuit bottoms to wear during the day having a good appearance, but also enjoying the beautiful spring days in full relax, there are models in cotton, jersey and stretch fabrics. Among the casual trousers there are those with seamed pockets by Burberry, but also the comfortable Capri pants in full Fifties revival proposed by Salvatore Ferragamo, Y-Project and Max Mara. Utility-style with many pockets and neutral colors ranging from brown to military green and beige are those created by Fendi. Tracksuit bottoms for the sport are in soft jersey fabric, but this season have something extra with lace inlays like those proposed by Twinset or with contrasting bands on the sides like those by Gucci. The most comfy models are the low-crotch trousers designed by Rick Owens and Avant Toi, while the classic jogging pants are proposed by almost all the fashion houses, from Chanel to Alexander Wang. The leggings for Givenchy recall the Eighties with stirrup models to wear with the ankle boots or the Western-style boots, while the printed variants, seen at Roberto Cavalli and Versace are perfect both with trainers and high heels.
Bold prints and strong colors, here the newest ideas for women’s trousers
Among the prints most beloved by fashion designers, in this season we can surely find the animal patterns that recall the luxury of the Eighties. Saint Laurent, for example, uses a snake print for the shorts, while the leopard print is chosen by many designers, like Twinset, Roberto Cavalli and Moschino. Ethnic inspiration instead for Alberta Ferretti, who proposes models in suede or silk with prints recalling the Native Americans’ naïve art, and also for Philosophy by Lorenzo Serafini and Chloé, who both choose wide-leg lines for the oriental style and paisley prints. To give a touch of romanticism to our days we can opt for a floral print, interpreted in a refined and sensual way by Dolce & Gabbana and Blumarine, while M.S.G.M. chooses a almost photographic effect to represent rich floral bouquets. The plain colored trousers ban the dark shades of winter time to cheer up our wardrobe with bold and strong tones. Almost fruity those by P.A.R.O.S.H., while Giorgio Armani proposes very sophisticated opalescent nuances and Tod’s chooses strong colors like the electric blue. Isabel Marant instead looks to the Eighties, with neon colors for capris models with cuffs.
Bootcut, bell-bottoms or wide-leg, the tailored trousers choose refined fabrics and couture details
The taste for beautiful things returned to be felt in the international runways, with a strong recall to the elegant tradition of tailored and formal trousers. Are several the models proposed by the trendiest fashion designers:
- The wide-leg trousers for Stella McCartney and Givenchy are high-waist and are worn with a contrasting color belt
- Again high-waist for the more close-fitting pants of Edun Choi, Victoria Beckham e Philosophy by Lorenzo Serafini
- Return to the Seventies for the flared bell-bottoms trousers of Alexander McQueen and Moschino, but also for the almost optical effect of the prints by Valentino and Diane Von Furstenberg
- Balmain tights the trousers at the ankles with straps, leaving the trousers line soft and creating an interesting game of contrasts
- Victoria Beckham and Marni choose the asymmetrical line for models so wide to seem almost skirts
Special effects for the evening trousers
Who said that the trousers are suitable only for the daywear? The latest years’ trend of wearing trousers also for the evening outfits becomes stronger this spring with very precious models and special effects. Metallic glows of gold, silver and bronze seduce designers like Maison Margiela, which proposes extravagant models in Eighties style, but also Dolce & Gabbana and Emporio Armani, who opt for luxurious sequins embellishments to make the wide-leg trousers more precious, both in the cropped version than in the ankle-length version. For the most refined and elegant pants the flawless fabrics are the silk satin, like in the case of the wide-leg trousers by Salvatore Ferragamo, and the lace, like those by Blumarine that play with a refined see-through effect for the straight-leg trousers rigorously in black. For a night at disco, Balmain and Giorgio Armani propose ultra-bright effects with unusual material like vinyl, that could give a sassy touch to the most elegant tops perfect if worn under the tailored jacket.
