White trousers are the height of summer chic. Here’s how to make them work for you
Take the dress-down approach to a white trousers outfit with a classic denim jacket and flat sandals. Play it safe with a plain navy or grey T-shirt, or experiment with a slogan tee. This is the perfect look for a relaxed weekend walk by the beach, with white trousers offering a stylish alternative to your everyday jeans.
Teaming white trousers with light colours works well, like a pair of white jeans with a white blouse. For an easier take on pale and interesting, a beige trench or pastel blouse looks fabulous. White trousers also showcase bold accessories, such as statement sandals.
Imagine fluffy white clouds against a sky-blue backdrop, with the endless azure ocean lapping away beneath. It’s a colour palette that works, right? Which is why teaming white trousers with blue is always a good shout, spanning the full spectrum from a baby-blue cashmere jumper to a navy blue linen shirt.
