While some cold weather disciples believe that the end of winter is the end of "real" dressing, clinging on to the chance to wear heavy wool overcoats and layered down jackets, others welcome the arrival of warmer spring days and the opportunity for a less functional take on style.

Although outerwear is the first port of call when the seasons switch, you can’t forget about pants. This is when trousers, whether denim, corduroy, or cargo, feel most comfortable.

Why? Well, pants no longer need long-john back-up when we get to spring. Nor is the weather anywhere near hot enough to bring those shorts out just yet. So, with trousers firmly on the agenda, we hit up SSENSE to find the best pants for spring from labels like Needles, Jacquemus, South2 West8, and more.

Keep scrolling to shop our favorite pants for spring.
