The wardrobe switch is in full swing, and our summer favourites are making their way to the forefront of our wardrobes once again. With weeks of endless sunny days in mind (here’s hoping), of course, linen dresses, short suits and strappy tops are a firm favourite. But if you’re not one to opt for rising hemlines at the first glimpse of sunshine, or you just prefer trousers in general, we have news for you. Wide-leg trousers will be your best friend all summer, and beyond. The loose-fit, often tailored, style is renowned for looking effortless with minimal effort needed. And when temperatures rise, minimal effort is exactly what we all rely on.
For daytime, wide-leg trousers look particularly good with a vest top, chunky sandals and a sleek fuss-free bag. For after-dark activities, they look equally as stylish belted with a silky shirt or cami and heeled mules. If you opt for a neutral pair, they’ll basically go with anything you own. And when it comes to fabrics, head in the direction of linen, cotton or floaty styles that’ll be light, breezy and get you through the upcoming heat waves. Need further guidance on how to style them? We’ll let some of our favourite fashion influencers take it from here, and keep scrolling to see the 23 pairs we rate.
