The art of dressing like a minimalist starts with elevating your basics. And a pair of relaxed but also refined trousers are one of the most important foundation pieces in a minimalist wardrobe.
A fine-looking pair of tailored trousers makes anything you wear look good, whether you couple them with a simple top like a poplin blouse or t-shirt, a chain necklace, a chunky knit, or a pair of open-toe sandals. For the colder months, though, it’s nice to have some slacks in heavier-weight, cozy fabrics. Our edit of pleated cashmeres, wools, flannels, herringbone tweeds, and heavy crepes are both sensible and stylish and sure to do the trick to keep you warm this fall.
You certainly couldn’t go wrong with any option from The Row—the brand has mastered the pleated trouser. However, if you’re looking for a more approachable investment, Vince, Low Classic, Lou Lou Studio and Filippa K all offer minimalist pant silhouettes that are rather effortless.
Start from the bottom up. Find a relaxed straight or a wide, but not too wide, pair of trousers to be the hero of all of your fall ensembles. Shop our edit of perfectly pleated minimalist pants and well-tailored trousers—all in an unsurprisingly neutral color palette, of course.
