The Best Women’s Trousers for Spring & Summer

The promise of spring is only around the corner and with it comes the chance to update your clothing collection, incorporating new pieces that reflect the change in weather. Despite spring and summer being typically warmer months, there’s no telling what the British weather will do. So, while investing in dresses, skirts and playsuits is still a must-have for this time of year, don’t forget those all-important trousers too. After all, the UK spring and summer seasons are still prone to chilly temperatures and rain showers.

With that in mind, Whispering Smith give us some advice on the best women’s trouser styles for the upcoming season.

Cargo pants

Cargo pants were once seen as incredibly casual but now they can be a very versatile style worn for a number of different occasions. With a typically lightweight construction and eye-catching detail with pockets and zips, cargo pants can often have an elasticated waist and hem too.

Styled down with a t-shirt and trainers or styled up with a blouse and heels, cargo pants are set to be a popular choice through spring and summer for days when the temperatures don’t reach impressive heights. Despite that, they’re still very wearable even in warm weather.

Look for shades like sand, khaki or stick to classic black to complete your SS21 collection this year.

Distressed jeans

Distressed jeans always make a comeback for the spring and summer, mostly because they make wearing denim in the summer more comfortable. With ripped knees and distressed patches, they are ideal for giving a little extra breathing room.

Distressed jeans are also easily styled for any occasion, and can be bought in a variety of colours to suit the season. For spring and summer, we recommend white jeans, light blue or even indigo for a classic and versatile look.


Printed culottes

Nothing says spring more than a pair of culottes. Traditionally loose with a flowing style, culotte trousers are perfect for remaining cool in the summer weather. Your spring summer collection won’t be complete without a pair or two of printed culottes, designed with check or floral prints in seasonal colours.

Perfect for both in this country and abroad, culottes are always a popular purchase when the weather starts to improve. With a flattering wide leg and cinched waist, printed culottes are an effortlessly stylish addition to your collection this season.


Fluffy trousers

With loungewear having been such a huge part of our uniform for the last year, you might want to keep some cosy and comfortable styles in mind, just in case. The fluffy knitted-style trousers have been a lifesaver for many working from home or those wanting to stay in but stay stylish too.

Fluffy, slim leg trousers can be easily worn with a hoodie and slippers, or be thrown on with a pair of trainers and t-shirt if needs be. Lockdown may be ending, but people’s love for loungewear is set to stay!
