Whether you’re crazy about culottes or just enjoy a good pair of slacks, here are some pants that mean business…

While it’s still winter, trouser up like a boss with a wide range of trans-seasonal tones and edgy cuts, which will add a new dimension to your styling set.

The options are as far and wide as your trouser leg, when it comes to culottes. Find your niche with neutral wool fabrics featuring front pleats, classic checks or graphic prints in lightweight linens. These statement pieces come in a variety of cropped lengths to suit any temperature and occasion, so you can show off a little leg or graze the ankle with a conservatively cuffed hemline.

For a more streamlined silhouette step out in a pair of suit-style slacks with a tapered leg. An investment pair of tailored trousers in monochromatic hues will make for a versatile foundation to take you from work to weekend.

If you want the best of both worlds, walk the line in wide-leg cuts, emphasised with horizontal
stripes. Opt for pants with a high waist and team them with a cropped knit or a tucked in collared shirt.

Whatever your preference, take your slacks selection in your stride and complete the look with a pair of sleek stilettos or modern mules.

For the men…

For a smart take on trousers, try a structured approach with a front feature pleat and textured fabrics. Add polish with a blazer, button down, pocketchief and loafers.

Whatever the terrain, keep it dapper in fancy pants fit for a three-piece suit, with M.J. Bale’s authentic all-weather tailored garments.
