Summer is almost here right? And what is the best item of clothing you can wear to both keep cool and look elegant? A pair of wide legged trousers. You can mix and match them easily with other staples in your wardrobe. Either choose a plain pair and pop on a floral top, or keep the bottoms busy and pick a blank tee shirt.
Here’s our pick of the best:
- Mint Velvet Elle Print Soft Flare – was £79.00 now £39.00
Great savings here for a pair of Mint Velvet trousers, and unlike other sale items, all the sizes are available. The material is viscose which means they will hang beautifully, and they have a tie at the waist. They do not hang as low down as other wide legged trousers either, at 32.5” inside leg. Plus there’s the gorgeous khaki print which goes with just about everything.
- Coast Meleri Organza Trousers – £89.00
These are something special, a pair of organza trousers that have a double layer of material, one plain underneath and the other with the gorgeous floral pattern on it. The lightweight fabric comes with a plain waistband and the trousers fall to just around the ankle.
- Hobbs Josefina Trouser – £89.00
We love the mix of khaki colours and floral print in these palazzo pants. The olive colour can be worn with just about anything and the navy sketch style print perfectly epitomises a casual look. Made from viscose.
- River Island Purple print high waisted trousers – £38.00
Talk about statement pants! These are pretty gorgeous aren’t they? Fabulous summer colours in a groovy print design in a soft, woven material. The pants have a split leg which adds to the look and the material is polyester which will fall nicely.
- Topshop Stripe Slouch Trousers – £38.00
Stripes work really well with wide legged pants, as they help to narrow the extra width and are particularly flattering to all figures. These are made from viscose and are designed for a slouchy fit. Comes with side pockets and a high waist band.
- New Look Brown Geo Print Tie Waist Wide Leg Trousers was £19.00 now £10.00
These are a great pair of palazzo pants to try if you do not want a really wide pair but love the style. They are not too wide at the bottom so you won’t look like a throwback from the 1970’s. Lovely geometric print that almost looks floral in a gorgeous brown with a tie waist and made from viscose.
- M&S Collection Maasai Print Wide Leg Beach Trousers – £19.00
We love the mix of prints on these pants, the grey geometric pattern at the top of the leg and then the pink zig zags at the bottoms. Elasticated waist and does up with a tie for a comfortable fit and material is viscose. Falls to the ankle.
- Lauren Ralph Lauren Flotsima floral print wide leg trouser – was £125.00 now £62.50
Now these don’t look like wide legged pants but they are. If you want to make a statement, these are the ones to wear. Big floral prints in bright primal colours. Fitted waist for a flattering silhouette. Material is polyester.
- Miss Selfridge Tropical Wide Leg – £32.00
A perfect example of what a pair of palazzo trousers should look like. Big, bold floral print of tropical flowers against a dark background in a viscose material. Invisible zip at the side which means the tummy stays nice and flat. Trousers hang just on the top of the feet.
- Max Studio Printed Wide Leg Trousers – £40.00
A pair of simple and understated palazzo pants here in a minimalist design in a geometric pattern. We like the mix of material here, not just viscose but a touch of elastane too, adding a softness and stretch to the fabric. With a fitted waist line for a flattering fit.
