This Summer I’ve been all about trousers. The wide-legged variety in silky fabrics and juicy shades. The kind that billow as you walk, keeping your legs deliciously cool. Trousers that look glamorous dressed up with heels or take on a bohemian edge when paired with sandals.
Back in June I found two pairs of delightful vintage palazzo pants in the op shop. One pair was gunmetal grey and the other a rich green. Both were pleated in the most yummy satiny fabric. At a mere $3 apiece I knew I had to have them. As I walked home in sleeting rain, I imagined how often I would wear such trousers once the weather warmed up. And I was totally right.
These trousers have become a staple in my Summer wardrobe. This past Sunday I slipped on a pair to wear while reading my book on the lawn, eating dinner with my parents and then doing a spot of yoga.
I am wearing:
- Green satin palazzo pants (vintage)
- White butterfly studded tank top from Jeans West
- Tan sandals from Rubi Shoes
- Art deco earrings from Lovisa
As simple as this outfit was, I felt so comfortable and cool as I relaxed and dined with my family. I like unfussy Summer fashion, preferring to stick to a few striking pieces and leave the layering for the cooler months.
What item have you been wearing non-stop this Summer? Or this Winter, for my Northern-hemisphere-dwelling readers?
