These Trousers Will See You Through This Week's Heat Wave

For those days when it feels way too hot to wear jeans, but you don't want to wear shorts, there's one pair of trousers that all of our favourite street style stars are leaning on this summer: striped linen or satin trousers. The key here is to opt for loose, wide-leg styles that will make you feel cool but composed, whether you're on the central line or by the beach. All you need to add is a shirt or T-shirt and sandals, and you have the perfect heat-wave look.
