Trousers for girls that are both chic and playful? Yes please! Paperbag waist pants are having a moment in the spotlight and the Ada does not disappoint. They feature a high waist with elasticated back and pleated waist, and also have a tie belt that you could make in a contrasting print. A cord could also be a nice option!

The result is super comfy but still edgy, especially if you roll the trouser legs up casually at the ankle.

Fabric advice

You should go for a relatively ‘stiff’ fabric for the Ada, but one that still feels comfy to wear. If you go for a fabric with a drape that's too fluid, the pleats (i.e. the paper bag effect) won’t be quite as impressive. Cotton twill, maybe with a little stretch, is the perfect choice. However, linen can work too. The trousers look lovely in a solid fabric because it helps accentuate the details. However, stripe or check fabric could also create a cool, playful effect.
