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 vibrant fits the world over, we’ve taken a deep dive into the best loud trousers for the coming season.
From printed masterpieces by Acne Studios and Dries Van Noten to embroidery from BODE and Adish, 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 with the help of Mytheresa.

Acne Studios Floral Pants
With summer fading into the past, it's going to take a bit of effort to keep the brightness around. This pair of pastel floral pants from Acne Studios should do the trick, though.
Balenciaga BB Signature Pants
Loud pants aren't always the brightest ones in the room. Take this pair of Balenciaga pants, for example, which gets its bold character from a repeating BB signature print throughout.
Nanushka Jain Pants
Cut from a silk-twill blend, this pair of Nanushka pants features one of our favorite prints. Once again, this design proves that bright colors aren't necessary when the right detailing is in town.
BODE Embroidered Pants
In the arena of loud pants, few shout louder than BODE. Combining beautiful, bright archive materials with embroidery and beading, Emily Bode has devised the quickest route to our hearts and wardrobes.
Acne Studios Patchwork Cargo Pants
Proportions are another way to turn heads if colors aren't your thing. Acne Studios gives this classic pair of cargo pants a personality upgrade with huge flared legs.
Dries Van Noten Printed Pants
Dries Van Noten is never far from a mind-bending print. This season, one of the most beautiful pairs of pants we've seen is this silk-blend pair which has been block printed and finished with hand-painted borders in the classic Indian Kalamkari style.
Moncler Genius 2 MONCLER 1952 Sweatpants
As we move into fall and winter, technical pants move higher on our list of priorities. This pair from Moncler is a great example of why. Lightweight, no-fuss design couples with bold style for a winning combo.
Gucci GG Drawstring Pants
From technical to, well, the opposite. Gucci has never promised outdoors technicality (aside from when working with The North Face, that is.) What Gucci does promise is untouchable elegance, and that's what you're looking at.
Adish Embroidered Chinos
Actually, this pair of Adish chinos are understated in many ways. The classic workwear staple, though, is given a new angle by flashes of embroidery to the knees and cuffs.
Junya Watanabe Patch-Detail Pants
Much like the pair from Adish, these Junya Watanabe pants are so close to being understated. Only at the very last moment does Watanabe reveal bold patches to each cuff. This contrast between quiet and loud makes for a versatile pair that is sure to turn heads.
