I’m not sure exactly what it is about these trousers ($59.50) that I love so much but they just seem so light and summery and I can rarely resist that this time of year. ( I own more pairs of summer-weight chinos than I care to admit to.)
What I do know is that the very subtle blue and white stripe is a great way to add a bit of interest to an otherwise pretty basic pant. It’s almost like seersucker, without actually being seersucker. This would look really fresh paired with a white tank or tee. Just make sure it’s a fitted* version versus a flowy one since these trousers are a relaxed fit. (Never, ever go loose on top and bottom at the same time. Ever.)
If you want to polish up the look a little, yet keep the laid-back vibe, add a long silver necklace or hoop earrings.
If you want to take it up one more notch, a cotton or summer-weight wool blazer in navy would be the perfect final touch.
*Remember, “fitted” doesn’t necessarily mean “tight”. I’ve seen too many women confuse these two terms…often with disastrous results. Don’t be that girl.
