Forget everything you thought you knew about comfort-first fashion: these easy flared trousers are everything. 

If there’s one styling tip we’re bringing with us from lockdown into real time, it’s the art of comfort.

But not comfort in the form of decaying tracksuits and raggedy T-shirts; no, this form of comfort weaves together looking good with feeling good. And the result? Stylish wares that don’t compromise on comfort.

The latest in the realm of new-found stylish comfort are knitted trousers, which are making the case for eschewing your tracksuit bottoms in favour of their luxe cosiness.

The best part of fashion’s love-in with knitted trousers, which are as comfortable but decidedly more elevated than joggers, is that they can carry you perfectly from one place to the other without you so much as having to worry about the finalities of where you’re going. All these knitted numbers need to go are a pair of chunky trainers, or stomper boots if you prefer, and an equally chunky knitted jumper. Et voila! One comfort-first ensemble ready to go.
