Take the pair from Derek Lam’s winning 10 Crosby St. line (above) with genius color-blocked side panels in the always forgiving shade of black. While their retro-inspired lattice print adds a dose of playfulness, black accents also lend them a serious tone and make them all the more versatile. The trick here is to look for solid color-blocks on the side of each leg.
These pants from True Royal boast a contrasting waist-line that lends them a trompe l’oeil belt look while a contrasting back and front is certain to keep your silhouette looking surprisingly thinner from side angles.
The curved contrasting panels on these trousers from Ohne Titel add a sculptural edge while tricking the eye, which is something we could all use once in a while.
