Wide leg linen pants

Some may say that skinny jeans have died, and the re-birth of the wide-leg trousers have taken over the high street. Instead of tugging at body hugging pieces, the wide leg style is the perfect option for summer as it comes with Cool Comfort Technology, so you can stay comfortable all day long. A popular choice amongst the celebrities too, with big names such as Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Victoria Beckham all choosing this style to take to the streets.

These trousers look great with a long sleeved, boldly printed top for added contrast. Match the outfit with casual accessories, such as these brown espadrille wedges along with a brown woven cross body bag for the added finishing touches.

Stripe tapered linen trousers

If summer catwalks have taught us anything, it’s that stripes along with sexy exposed shoulders are two major trends for summer 2017. These tapered pants are perfect for those who prefer more of a fitted look in comparison to the bold wide-leg. Thanks to the weave and linen fibre specifics, you will find that the air flows much easier, so can enjoy wearing themwithout it clinging onto the skin or getting hot and bothered in the summer heat.

The great thing about these tailored pants are that they are cut to flatter every kind of body shape, from pear to apple shapes, the high-waist gives the illusion of a fitted waist. The vertical stripes add a refreshing, nautical finish to an outfit and work extremely well with a sleek cold shoulder top for an off-the-runway look. Complete the outfit with a pop of colour with a pair of bright mustard heels and adorable chain bag.
