The ’80s definitely aren’t dead, and neither are their favorite sartorial look. Trousers aren’t always a go-to item in everyone’s closet—they can be really specific to style and often are associated with business casual. With recent street style re-emergence of the trouser cut, I think it’s fair to say the style needs to be re-evaluated if you can’t seem to get on board.
Trousers are associated with movie style icons like Diane Keaton’s 1977 take on the look in “Annie Hall” or Meg Ryan’s “Sally Albright” in When Harry Met Sally. Both of their looks play up the fact that trousers are typically seen as professional, and sometimes more masculine, clothing items. As much as they are associated with these constructs, trousers are incredibly versatile and they are definitely a change from denim in the colder months.
