5 Trousers That Are as Easy to Wear as Dresses This Summer

Skirts and dresses get a lot of airtime during summertime. Trousers, on the other hand, seem to go into a hibernation of sorts, only to reemerge when September rolls around. We're of the opinion, however, that it's just as easy to create a standout summer look with a pair of strides. So we're here to point you in the right direction.

As even the prettiest of frocks can become monotonous to wear. Many of our favourite influencers like to switch up their summer ensembles with trousers, and it seems there are five key styles they keep wearing on repeat. Naturally, when temperatures begin to soar, the last things you need are heavy-duty fabrics and tight-fitting trouser legs. Instead, look for linen or cotton pieces, particularly in wide-leg cuts.

Similarly, darker shades like black should be avoided where possible as they tend to retain the heat. Pastels and neutrals, however, will help to keep you cool. Without further ado, keep scrolling to see and shop the summer trousers 2019 has to offer.

Style Notes: No trouser style screams summer quite like a striped pair. The perfect dose of preppy, look for pairs with pastel or bright tones. Then wear with a simple top to keep the focus on your statement strides.

Style Notes: Jean addicts needn't go cold turkey during the summer months; simply choose alternative hues to keep the look fresh. White and ecru tones are always a winner, but terra-cotta is proving to be the fash-pack shade of choice.

Style Notes: When the temperatures begin to soar, you'll be glad to have a pair of linen trousers on hand. The breathable fabric will keep you cool even in intense holiday heat. Opt for wide-leg styles, and wear with flip-flops and racer-back vests for an effortlessly cool look.

Style Notes: Gingham is as quintessential to summer as picnics in the park. Having already taken over dresses and tops this season, the pretty motif has now spread to trousers, too. Keep your hemlines cropped, and pair with white tennis shoes and broderie for the perfect high-low spin.
