I love loose printed trousers and wear them all the time in warmer weather. Like most of the clothes I love, they are easy to style and comfortable to wear. Simple jewellery, a plain tshirt and sandals and you’re ready to go.
Here are some of my current favourites.
I must start by linking to these Mango Bambi trousers again. These are my new favourites.
Excuse the funny pose (& odd lumpy arm?), I wanted to show the harem drape.
Mango really are on fire with their trousers at the moment.
These black printed Mango trousers would be so easy to wear. I have a similar Zara pair (below) from a year or two ago that I wore yesterday.
Zara black printed draped trousers, black ASOS viscose tshirt (do not buy this – it’s crap), black Birkenstock Arizona.
My Euro Trash tendencies mean I have always loved a bit of Tropicana (the look, not the juice) and I am so pleased palm prints are everywhere this season. The Ganni Palm Playsuit is on my birthday list. In the meantime I am barely resisting these Ganni printed trousers.
These red palm print trousers look a fabulous, cheaper alternative. I have some red ones from Zara a few years ago that I love and wore earlier this week.
Here with black Topshop snakeprint skaters, black ASOS tshirt, black Topshop jacket, old black Warehouse scarf.
These floral ones are a more delicate alternative and would go with a variety of more colourful tops.
Leopard print loose trousers are a wardrobe staple for me. I have a (surprise!) Zara pair which I wear out in the evening, to travel, as general day wear and even while heavily pregnant. I am sure Zara will do them again soon but these from H&M look similar, ASOS have a lighter pair in the sale. Mango have a pretty stunning Palazzo version too!
Mango Leopard Palazzo Trousers.
These from Zara are 100% polyester but look good. As you can probably tell from my collection, I rate Zara printed trousers and monochrome is “in” this season.
A nod to the Folk trend with these Floral Utility trousers from Topshop that have had very good reviews.
I like these navy striped trousers from Zara.
ASOS have a large selection as you’d expect. I keep meaning to say that for just shy of a tenner you get free ASOS next day delivery (& collection of returns from your home) for a year. Worth every penny for me.
Will I resist these?
I have tried these Oshyo Beach Trousers and they are really nice. True to the description they are more of a beach than city trouser I’d say but great for holidays.
I really do like these American Vintage Fayettville printed trousers.
Yellow from Essentiel Antwerp who are being pushed in lots of fashion mags at the moment.
Rose print from Ted Baker.
Oh what beauties from See by Chloe.
Printed trousers with elasticated waistbands are great for wearing under a baby bump too. I wore them almost exclusively when I was pregnant with La Bambina (almost two years ago?!)
The next few styles are all more fitted. They just don’t work on me but I could easily see most of these being work appropriate in the height of summer and they’d work as well with sandals on holiday.
They do nothing for me but I have heard good things about the Boden Bistro Crop Trousers and this green print is really pretty.
I haven’t seen these Zara Printed Trousers in real life but they look really good. They are mainly cotton and the print is just beautiful.
Lovely grafitti pattern, again from Zara. These are 97% cotton with a bit of stretch.
I so wanted these Topshop Moroccan Tile Cigarette Trousers to suit me because the print is just stunning. Sadly they did not.
I tried these too and desperately tried to convince myself they looked good but alas, not for my shape. They are beautiful.
These are a slightly different shape and I can imagine them looking so chic and cool on with a simple grey tshirt and slightly flowing grey jacket.
Polyester but how lovely is this tile print from Topshop? Belinda has a stunning pair from Topshop I hope she will share soon.
Back to palm print (I can’t resist it!) and perhaps only for less formal workplaces but these cotton Topshop Palm Print Trousers are really nice in real life.
I have a problem with the fit of Gap trousers but these Striped Broken in Straight Khakis look interesting.
And if the man in your life is looking for a pair, how about these?
Now all I need is to find the perfect black tshirts to go on top. I am considering silk. Many of these trousers have high viscose/polyester contents and I think they need a quality top with them in general. Two years ago Uniqlo did some great silk mix tees I shall keep my eyes open for. Any other suggestions very gratefully received!
