May is now in full bloom and before we know it the summer months will be upon us. Although the weather is currently not up to much, we’re hoping that we’ll have a heatwave in the next few weeks meaning we can wear our summer style in comfort.
In our excitement to bring you all the latest summer styles such as highwaisted skirts, shorts and maxi dresses, we neglected a key wardrobe must-have for the next few months and that’s of course trousers.
The spring/summer catwalks gave us a huge insight into what we can expect to see and what we should be wearing. Gucci, Missoni and Burberry bought us harem pants, which were either patterned, giving a nod to the tribal trend, or sophisticated and plain.
Designer favourite Balmain as well as Sportmax and Paul and Joe, updated the skinny, adding a khaki military twist and Paul Smith opted for the classic capri pant.
However, one of the most daring trouser trends this year has got to be the floral look as sported by models on the DKNY catwalk.
We’ve put together a gallery of the designer trends and matched them up to the hottest highstreet versions out there as well as giving you a few hints and tips along the way on how to wear each trend and what to avoid depending on your body shape.
