Your next pair of trousers will be more eye-catching than ever.

Whether it's sporty side stripes or plenty of pockets, this coming autumn slacks are getting seriously interesting.

Perhaps it's all down to the boom in Nineties sportswear, but it seems the increasing popularity of double-stripe tracksuit trousers over the past couple of years has given men a taste for far more adventurous trousers. At the London Fashion Week Men's shows this season, designers have started to switch the focus of their outfits from the top half to the bottom, adding far more interest and detail below the belt line, mostly through adding colourful side stripes to trousers.

Having bubbled up from sportswear and tipped over into more formal tailoring thanks to Alessandro Michele (who added them to his distinctive cropped trousers at Gucci), these stripes are now becoming wider and more noticeable across the board here in the UK. Take a look at Lou Dalton, who added one inch-thick navy blue stripes to her soft'n'slouchy grey melange wool slacks, or Oliver Spencer, who slipped bright white streaks down the side of his tailored joggers. There were also dual-shade stripes at Band of Outsiders, popping pinstripes with a tie waist at Alex Mullinsand checked stripes on the front of tracksuit trousers at Astrid Andersen.
