We all know about the power of loud shirts. In fact, we’ve preached the power of a statement shirt many times. A power lesser-known but equally as important is that of loud trousers. Trousers are the middle-ground of your fits; they provide the foundational link between your footwear and your top half, so why are they so commonly overlooked? It’s not only unfair, it’s disappointing. So for the sake of summer fits the world over, we’ve taken a deep dive into the best loud trousers at MATCHESFASHION for the coming season.

From Needles, providing the strongest case for sweatpants in public, to punk-tinged highlights by Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, our selection covers the weird and wonderful breadth of loud trousers. While you may need to consider toning things down around these pairs — we’re talking white tees and understated sneakers — you won't be in danger of your fits lacking punch. Styling tips aside, let’s get to the loud trousers.
