School trousers needn’t be dull. This flat-fronted slim-cut pair for older boys proves that uniform can be on-trend as well as practical, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
It’s a new year, and for those kids who have shot up over the holidays, now’s the time to invest in some new schoolwear. Happily, gone are the days when children dreaded new uniform purchases: these days it’s a fashion statement in its own right – with enough practicality to keep us parents smiling too. These skinny school trousers for boys aged nine and up, with a permanent crease (to save on ironing) and an adjustable waist, cleverly manage to combine form and function. As with all our schoolwear, they conform to school rules, and this particular style features Stormwear+, an innovative fabric that repels both water and stains.
