Dreaming of donning trousers, in the Freudian perspective, may signify an assertion of authority or a manifestation of the phallic symbol, indicating a desire for power or control.

Thinking a bit more creatively... It could also represent the ego's attempt to establish boundaries and structure. Observing another in trousers, conversely, might suggest a projection of these attributes onto another, or a perceived threat to one's autonomy. The unconscious mind often uses such symbols to communicate complex emotions and desires. However, the individual's subjective experience and the dream's overall context are crucial for a nuanced interpretation.
