Trousers for summer?

The thought of wearing trousers in the summer months, quite frankly, scares me. Clingy material from the waist to ankles gets a no from me, but here I am wearing some in August. And here's why.

I'm one of those people who visualises an outfit before picking up the pieces to pair it all together. I had the shirt and I had the trousers, and putting them together literally came to me in a dream one night. In the colder months I'll pair the shirt with a knit and skirt, but shirts themselves aren't thick. Leave a few buttons undone at the bottom, tie the sides together for my favourite kind of cropped top look. I swear against buying tops or shirts already tied when buying, purely because it's never tight enough or at the right place on the hips. So just do it yourself with what you've already got. This shirt is from Newlook. I did say that shirts aren't think, but those flimsy see through cami needing ones might not work as well as a more fitted version. But the choice is yours.

The trousers. Linen is your best friend here. It will need an iron after every sit down or movement. BUT it's thin and airy and perfect if you work in an office. Stone and beige colours work well here with the crisp white shirt. These high waisted ones are from Nasty Gal last year and although a tad big, sit nicely on the waist.
