Elevate your casual summer outfits with the must-have style of the season – trousers! In breezy, summer-friendly fabrics with a dramatic wide leg, these women’s pants are your trend-right essential this year. Find out what we <3 about trousers and our fave ways to wear ‘em below!

Trouser 101

The first question you might be asking yourself is, “What is a trouser?” A pant by many names, a trouser is an elevated style with a clean-cut, well-tailored silhouette, and dressier (but still chill!) vibe. Sometimes called a chino or wide-leg khaki, trousers typically feature a signature high waist and loose, wide leg opening.

Trouser Fits & Fabrics

Trousers create an easy It Girl look and come in different fabrics and styles so you can find the look and fit you love. Go all in on summer days with breathable linen-blend trousers, hit the office in khaki trousers, or get dressed up for date night in Dreamy Drape trousers made with soft woven fabric.

Find whichever trouser is right for you: a classic wide-leg trouser pant, a low-rise flare trouser, a stovepipe ankle trouser, or a Curvy trouser with extra room through the hip and thigh.

Must-Have Trouser Outfits

Light and dreamy, trouser pants are made for warmer weather and beyond! And the best part about ‘em is that they play well (a.k.a. look good 👀) with others! Mix and match trousers with your fave tops and accessories for laid-back looks you can wear whenever and wherever. 

For The Office: Trousers & Denim Jackets

Become an icon of the office by wearing super high-waisted trousers with a boxy tee and denim jacket. Let loose on casual Fridays by pairing your trousers with a tucked-in graphic tee, or button up your look for presentations and big meetings with a button-up shirt or blouse.

Easily go from the office to after-work plans by throwing on a hat and sneakers to finish the ‘fit.

For Date Night: Khaki Trousers & Crop Tops

Get date night ready with khaki trousers in a comfy high-waisted fit! Wear ‘em with a cropped denim halter top for an effortlessly cool vibe, and finish the look with sandals or sneakers depending on where the date takes you. Grab an oversized button-up shirt or summer cardigan for an easy on-the-go layer that adds to your look when the sun sets.

For Errands: Stovepipe Trousers & Layered Tops

Run errands in style by showing off your *new* summer sandals with trousers that hit at the ankle! Top off the look with an oversized Go Big Beach shirt, and wear a cropped tank top under for an easy layered style that’s just-right for summer days. 

Finish off the outfit with need-now details like charm necklaces and friendship bracelets for an easy look you’ll love!

And if you’re looking for another summer-ready trouser look, try trouser shorts made with the same light, breezy fabrics. 

What Shoes To Wear With Trousers

Trousers not only have a lightweight, flattering, comfy fit… they also look good with pretty much every shoe you already have in your closet! Wear them with loafers or flats at the office, slip into sandals after work, and switch to sneakers for running errands.
