Although it’s denim season all day long for us Angelenos, spring is the ideal time to scoop up new styles. And if jeans aren’t part of your uniform already, this latest trend will convince you otherwise. We’re finding more and more polished, tailored silhouettes that look like proper trousers rendered in sleek dark washes. Whether you prefer a traditional tapered cut with pleats or a structured wide-leg design that’s extra roomy, the latest offerings pair well with weekend or work attire. Style with a tee and sneakers for off-duty adventures or with a feminine blouse, trench coat and pumps for the office. Ahead, take a peek at these versatile options.
