Step Into Spring/Summer Wearing Wide-leg Trousers

Step Into Spring/Summer Wearing Wide-leg Trousers

Wide-leg trousers are my spring/summer failsafe. I’m pale-skinned (translucent you might say) and the only type of tanning lotion I can be bothered to apply is Garnier’s Summer Body moisturising lotion?with tan. It gives me a hint of a glow with minimum effort, which is exactly how I like my beauty routine (tanning mitts, latex gloves and tan-stained pyjamas all seems like an awful lot of mess and hard work – and every weekend?). But still I will never expose my legs in summer, unless I’m going for a swim. I haven’t worn a pair of shorts since I was about?ten, and the only summer dresses in my wardrobe are maxis (and thank goodness for them), though this season I’ll be opting for a Chloe-esque ankle grazer too. So my sartorial survival guide for this time of year is built mainly around palazzo pants, loose-leg linen trousers and culottes.

Although it’s not yet summer (by a long shot), once the days begin to lengthen and there’s a suggestion of warmth in’the sun, I like to loosen up my tailoring a little and ditch the skinny jeans.?These mustard wide-leg trousers from Jaeger are perfect. The high-waisted fit is sophisticated and smart, while the pockets add a cool laid-back feel.

Tie waist, wide-leg trousers, €145 at Jaeger

These Whistles trousers offer a wonderfully modern take on tailoring. The soft blush side stripe gives them a cool athleisure vibe, but the wide leg and cropped cut makes them office appropriate too. These are one of my favourite pairs on the high street now.

Wide side stripe cropped trousers, €70 (reduced from €140) at Whistles
Nautical always looks chic coming into spring/summer, and I love how these striped Zara trousers have been styled with a denim shirt to give them more of an urban rather than a French Riviera vibe. These are a classic and will work year in year out.
Striped trousers, €29.95 at Zara
