As we near the end of the year, celebrity outings are becoming more and more frequent. With awards ceremonies, press events, and annual engagements cropping up throughout the weeks, we’ve had the exciting opportunity to catch an extra glimpse of some of our favourite style icons over the past month.
As someone who spots trends for a living, I will admit that I was surprised to see this particular one styled by two of my favourite trend setters over the weekend. Both known for their elegant, refined and manicured taste (amongst many other things), I was shocked to see both Princess Catherine, aka Kate Middleton, and Anne Hathaway opt for white wide-leg trousers on drizzly December days.
Attending a carol service at Westminster Abbey, The Princess of Wales ignored the wet weather forecast and styled floor skimming white wide leg trousers with a white blouse and long-line white coat. Protecting the bottom of her trousers from sneaky puddles and muddy grass, The Princess opted for tall stiletto heels, adding extra height whilst keeping her ankles dry.
Simultaneously in New York City, Anne Hathaway was spotted mirroring The Princess’s outfit, styling a white base layer with white wide leg trousers and a lavender cardigan as she left a recording of The Tonight Show. Making her way through the city’s streets, Hathaway kept her white trousers looking fresh with a chunky beige boot and some luck on her side.
Whilst winter whites are a cold-weather no-brainer, when we’re met with frequent showers which lead slippery, muddy pathways, a white wide-leg trouser won’t be for the faint-hearted, nor can it be described as practical. But, with a little bit of confidence, and a few Tide stain-erasing pens to hand, there are plenty of style-related reasons to give it a go. If you’re feeling spurred on by this fashion power-pair, read on to discover our edit of the best white wide-leg trousers to buy now.
