Not sure which boots are right for your favourite trousers? We can help.



Words: T. MacInnis

You can have loads of pieces in your wardrobe that fit well and you love to wear, but that’s only half the battle. The other (and arguably harder) half is figuring out how to put it all together. From mixing colours and prints to finding the right proportions, pairing things isn’t always straightforward.

This can be the case with finding the right boots for your trousers. Whether you’re wearing suit trousers, chinos or joggers, trousers can make or break your boot choice. And, the colour or texture of each can also be at odds, or work really well. Read on to find out which boots typically work with which trousers.


Chelsea boot with flannel trousers

The great thing about a Chelsea boot is its versatility. A classic piece of smart casual footwear, it can see you through work days and evening events alike, and always adds a considered touch to an outfit. Crafted from a luxuriously soft suede, our granite Chelsea boots are lightweight and perfect for all-day wear. For the cooler season, combine with a pair of tonal flannel trousers; with their narrow tops, the boots can easily tuck under the slim legs and show off the elasticated detailing, while the chestnut colour palette is super seasonal.



Alternatively, swap the chestnut flannel for a grey and finish with a cream peacoat – the suede texture of the Chelsea boot contrasts the brushed wool, while the coat rounds off the smart casual aesthetic.


Brown hiking boots with cord trousers

Hiking boots aren’t just for weekend walks – our leather boots are smart enough to pair with tailored trousers or chinos alike. Crafted from rich brown leather with a burnished finish, they’re fur lined to keep you extra cosy this winter. To contrast, pair with blonde corduroy trousers – the medium wale cord will give your outfit some dimension and the drawstring waist adds a level of stretch and comfort. Combine with a winter white roll neck and layer with the matching cord jacket for a tonal look that feels on-trend for 2023.


Brown hiking boots with suits

Who said you can’t wear hiking boots with suiting? If you want to tone down a smart look, add a pair of boots to a tailored trouser like our slim fit denim. The silhouette of the boot adds a utilitarian feel to the suit and the brown warms up the overall look in way that black or white can’t. Again, just make sure the hem of your trousers sits comfortable over the top of the boot.
