How to Wear – White Trousers

Looking through Pinterest I was inspired by the many pictures of outfits with white trousers. I love the wide leg options and the classic “Summer in the Hamptons” look, bottom right.

Although we aren’t out of the woods yet as far as the weather is concerned, now is still the time to buy. Otherwise you risk only being able to find the ones you want in a size 6! Some of those I wanted to include were already on low stock – we are nothing if not optimistic in this country, one bit of sunshine and we let ourselves believe summer is here.

From wide leg to capri and jeans to tailored choose a pair that’s right for you. If you have slim legs but have a tummy or wider hips choose a slim leg or capri style and wear with a longer length kaftan or gypsy style top – both  are right for this summer. For those of you who are slim with neat hips go for a pair of white jeans and a fitted top or jacket. To lengthen the leg wear them long with heels if they are straight or wedges or block heels with flares. Crops look good casually with slides or thong style sandals or wear strappy heels for the evening.

Although stark white is hard for most of us to wear close to face, we can all wear it in a pair of trousers. Mix white with white on hot summer days and accessorise with silver or gold. It looks great with pastels and brights too, so choose from the colours that suit you. (Click here to receive your free download of my wearing colour booklet if you aren’t sure)
