Women’s black trousers – the elegant classics
Black trousers for women are timeless classics. This is not surprising, as this dark colour has many positive qualities. Above all, black trousers are known to visually elongate the legs, creating an instantly slimming effect. So your figure can benefit from the appearance of long, slim legs. This figure-flattering garment also has practical advantages, however: women’s trousers in black show dirt less quickly in everyday wear. In addition, they are always opaque and easy to style with other separates. All this makes black trousers a wardrobe must-have for every elegant woman. You will therefore find a wide selection of trousers in sizes 34 to 56 in the GERRY WEBER online shop. Along with classic cuts, our collection always contains the latest trouser trends too. Take a look around now and discover your new favourite trousers in black online!
Which elegant black trousers for women are trending?
Black trousers aren’t all the same! The many different cuts provide lots of variety despite being in the same colour. Along with Bermuda shorts, paperbag trousers and cargo pants, the following three styles, in particular, are on trend right now:
Culottes: Culotte trousers are characterised by the A-line cut of the leg. This allows for great freedom of movement, while at the same time concealing wide calves. As they come in an elegant design, black culottes can be styled as part of chic business outfits for the office.
Palazzo pants: The word palazzo means palace in Italian and describes black trousers which are cut so extravagantly wide they could be taken for a maxi skirt. Like culottes, palazzo trousers flatter every leg with their casual cut.
Bootcut: bootcut jeans are one of the latest black trouser trends. These are close-fitting to straight on the thighs, only becoming wider below the knee. This makes black bootcut trousers perfect for women who want to enjoy a relaxed fit that still shows off their feminine figure, while accentuating their slim upper body.
If you don’t feel comfortable with these trouser trends, you can also create an elegant outfit with classics like a pair of skinny fit black jeans. A pair of dark GERRY WEBER trousers with a straight leg or in a slim fit will also provide a happy medium. The versatile cuts come in a wide variety of designs ranging from black high-waisted trousers to denim jeans with a low-rise waistband. The leg lengths of darker trousers also make an impression with their different designs. Especially popular in this respect are cropped trousers that show off the ankle. But extra-long cloth trousers in cotton are also exceptionally comfortable and real head-turners. Black leggings can also be styled with long tops for an equally comfortable and casual look. If you look around, you’ll notice: Black trousers are being used more than ever before as versatile key pieces for creating outfits!
One colour, different fabrics – the material selection for black trousers for women
Along with fashionable styles, high-quality fabrics also make black trousers an indispensable component of your wardrobe. There are no limits to the selection of materials for women’s dark trousers. GERRY WEBER offers trousers in comfortable cotton, for example. Culottes in the popular summer fabric, linen, also enrich our latest collection with their robust elegance. When it comes to trousers in classic cuts with waist pleats, high-quality viscose, polyester, elastane and an acetate lining are used. The viscose can either come in a simple matte finish or feature an elegant sheen. The material selection should therefore be influenced by the occasion for which you are buying your black trousers.
Women’s trousers in black for every occasion
Women’s black trousers are the right choice for the most varied of different occasions. For everyday wear, we recommend a pair of wide-leg pull-on trousers made of our sustainable EcoVero viscose. Containing a touch of elastane, these trousers offer exceptional freedom of movement and comfort for all your daily activities. However, teamed with a white blouse and blazer, elegant black trousers are also indispensable as part of a stylish office outfit. A pair of black trousers can also be worn to evening events or on formal occasions for an equally chic look. Elegant fabrics and subdued colours will elevate your outfit for every event. A pair of black faux leather tracksuit bottoms, for instance, would be perfect for an evening out with the girls, while culottes with a fine shimmer are perfect for a trip to the theatre. Our styling tip: Teamed with a matching short sleeve blouse, your black trousers will look like an elegant jumpsuit in the twinkling of an eye!
You can even spend a comfy Sunday morning at home in a pair of black trousers. Choose between comfortable cloth trousers like a pair of dark leggings or easy-chic lounge trousers. This chic version of a pair of tracksuit bottoms makes an impression with a combination of elegance, crease-resistant fabric and exceptional comfort. Best of all, contrary to expectations, it’s a pleasure to wear our black trousers even on hot days thanks to their lightweight fabrics and high percentage of added stretch.
Black trousers in summer
Dark colours not made for summer? We beg to differ! With our black GERRY WEBER trousers made of lightweight linen, this elegant colour can be worn in summer without bringing you out in a sweat! Black trousers with floaty legs are also wonderfully cooling on hot days. You can’t go wrong with this dark shade if you're working in the shade of the office, for instance! On a crisp morning, you can team women’s black office trousers with a loose blouse and comfortable shoes or a pale blazer. Of course, black trousers can also be teamed with a comfortable T-shirt for off-duty wear. The more striking the cut of your new trousers, the less you need to add to them to create a beautifully put-together summer look! Should you prefer to wear lighter colours on warm days, you are obviously welcome to wear a pair of white trousers.
The right way to wash and care for black trousers
To ensure your new women’s trousers retain their black shade and high-quality appearance as long as possible, you should take note of a few tips on caring for and washing dark clothing. First and foremost, the familiar rule applies that you should only wash black jeans with other black garments. To give the colour additional protection, you can turn your trousers inside-out before washing. We advise against using harsh detergents when washing black clothing and recommend that you use detergents designed for use with black and colourful garments instead. When selecting the wash program, you should focus on the type of fabric being washed. In most cases, it is advisable to use a low-temperature wash. For example, 30 degree temperatures are sufficient for regular soiling. Your black trousers can go in the tumble dryer without any problem, depending on the type of fabric. More delicate fabrics should be air-dried. But watch out! Do not hang dark trousers in direct sunlight as this robs the black of its lustre! If you observe these tips as well as all the instructions on the care label, your high-quality trousers from GERRY WEBER will be with you for a long time to come.
