If you read my recent post about my 10 Summer capsule wardrobe core items, you will know that a pair of light (white, ivory or cream) trousers is a must have for me.
I have 3 pairs on rotation which serve different purposes; a smart casual straight leg pair for more informal events, a wide leg pair which are good for smarter events and a pair of silk culottes which are more special occasion wear. With these and a variety of tops and sandals or shoes I pretty much have all occasions covered. I simply add tops and accessories when I see them that I know will work with my trousers and give me variety.
Here are some of my outfits and below, as most of my pieces are from previous seasons, some other suggestions that are available now.
The straight leg trousers:
Top East (old) // Bag // Sandals (old) //
The wide leg trousers:

This simple formula that I follow, makes getting dressed for an evening or lunch out simple, whether it’s to a friend’s house or a more formal restaurant or cocktail party.
