The Trousers Edit: Shop Key Modest Trousers

Probably the king of staple pieces, a wardrobe is incomplete without a selection of modest trousers. We wear them day after day, to work and to social events or to travel and to relax. And to create stylish looks, and to rescue ourselves when we don’t know what to wear. In contrast to all the blouses and dresses we may own, the trouser remains a fashion hero.

Recommended to be purchased in an assortment of neutral colours that can play partner to everything else you own, these modest trousers meet every fashion criteria to the perfection. Read on for inspiration and styling tips!

Camel Palazzo Pants

Camel Palazzo Pants

Inspired by the avant-garde fashions of the 1930s, the Palazzo is essentially pants that feature extra wide legs. Flowy and breathable, they are an excellent option for a summer wardrobe. They usually flare out starting at the waist, unlike bell-bottoms that flare out from below the thigh. Interesting historical facts suggest that women deceived trouser bans in high-end restaurants by wearing, why of course, a palazzo (because from afar, it looks very much like a skirt)!

In contrast, the palazzo has become a versatile garment in the modern era. Used both for casual and formal occasions, they reiterate easy chic and effortless style.

Similar, these Camel Palazzo Pants can be dressed up or down as you fancy. In fact, they can become your year-round staple that fits modestly. Pair it with a high-low blouse and a scarf of choice. Or you can style them with a dressier blouse for some instant evening chic. The neutral camel shade goes well with everything from maroons to blacks to creams, and the length ensures that you can confidently wear them with high heels.

Did you know that it was Audrey Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich who made the palazzo relevant once again? That too, in the swinging sixties when fashion was saturated with garish shifts? Heralded as some of fashion’s greatest icons, their classic style still remains aspirational even after so many decades. But then palazzo pants are indeed as much about function, as about form. For the modest fashionista, they make special sense as they ensure the security of pants. They provide a sense of ease and comfort flawlessly.

We here at INAYAH especially love these billowy power pants for their elegance. As we love all things timeless.

Therefore, these Black Pleat Front Palazzos are next on our list, what with their super chic fall and stylised waistline. In a rich night hue, these modest trousers pair beautifully with elegant blouses and stylish shirt dresses alike. Drop down pleats from below the waist add to the wide-legged pants, while a basic hem ending down your ankles ensure a roomy fit for ample flare. Try them with everything from boots to leather sneakers.

Nude Rayon Blend 2 in 1 Trousers

Another one of those skirt-meets-pants smartness, the original invention was from the late fifties, claimed to be invented by a catalogue company. In its ‘skort’ rendition, a pair of shorts was overlapped with a wrap or a box-pleated overlay to resemble a skirt. Hence, the word skort. Over the years as fashion and street style evolved, the lengths have embraced a variety of inches, all the way down to below the ankles. Perfect for the modest dresser!

Sarong-style wraps attached to pants allow for multiple ways of styling a pair of modest trousers.

Case in point, these Nude Rayon Blend 2 in 1 Trousers. A tapering pair of pants underneath features a wrap around incorporated on to the waist that can be tied up in a chic knot. It is crafted in a beautiful nude shade that allows for plenty of accessorising opportunities. Nudes can work well extremely with colours from a similar family. And we offer a matching blouse that creates a jumpsuit-like look. When in the mood, just wear them separate!
