I never thought the day would come that I would refer to neutral colored trousers as a trend, but here we are. The pants I would normally save for office attire are actually, kind of, chic…? I don’t know when it happened by summer trousers are here to stay and making a statement!

Lately, I’ve been seeing these pants paired with fitted crop tops and sandals. I love how my one shoulder top pairs with the baggier pant style. And the barely-there sandals peaking out from under the pant leg look adorable.

I went for a more elevated, Parisian vibe with black and gold accessories. Just imagine a French girl walking down the streets of Paris in this casual cool combination that is so typical of the city. And of course anything that is reminiscent of Paris is a win in my book!

But now that I’ve talked about my look for this post, I want to share why I’m loving this trend. So, if you’re not convinced yet, let me sell you on the idea.

3 Reasons You Should Try Summer Trousers

  1. They’re insanely comfortable. Loose and roomy paired with a light fabric? It actually feels like wearing pajama pants. If you’re ready to upgrade your quarantine sweatpants for something a tad more chic, this is it!
  2. They’re universally flattering. The thing about wide leg trousers is that they look good on everyone! The baggy fit paired with more elevated details will always look pulled together. Bonus: you can have them tailored to fit you perfectly.
  3. There are so many styling options! Because of the neutral color, basically anything goes with summer trousers. I kept it simple with black details, but anything from color to prints will work! My suggestion though is to pay attention to proportions. Because the pants are baggier, I would go with a more fitted top for balance.

Have I sold you on summer trousers yet? I think this trend is so chic, plus it can easily be worn to work! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

When I think of summer clothing, my mind immediately jumps to denim cutoffs, dresses, skirts, etc. I usually leave pants off of the list. However, pants are the perfect summer piece to elevate a look, while still maintaining that breezy vacation vibe.

My first tip for wearing pants in the summer is to check out the fabric. You don’t want to go for a heavy denim, but rather a light linen like my pants above, or maybe even a silky option, like this pair.

Another rule to follow is opt for a wide leg pant. Not only is it less restrictive (therefore less hot), but it again fits in with the breezy summer vibe we’re going for. I went with a culotte version (it keeps from swallowing my frame), but full length is also an option.

Thanks for reading, and be sure to give me a follow on bloglovin’ and instagram!

P.S. If you really love the pants I’m wearing, although they sold out at H&M, I did a google search for them and they are available on eBay!
