It seems like summer is most definitely on its way and I could not be more excited. In this article I am going to discuss why I love flared trousers and the signature white t-shirt.

Why the white t-shirt?

The white t-shirt is an essential item of clothing within my wardrobe. My favourite designer Chanel famously adapted jersey, a fabric traditionally used for underwear, into fashionable womens-wear in the twenties, but it would be decades before this hidden staple came out from under, and gradually morphed from a masculine to a unisex garment.

I adore the simplicity of my white t-shirt and the gorgeous buttons. All of this outfit was purchased at high-street shop H&M. The colour explosion of the yellow bag is so adorable and screams summer.

The classic white tee remains a key element of the quintessential casual-cool uniform. Its very plainness, after all and leaves room for self-invention. This provides a blank canvas for where I can experiment with my trousers and add the colour of yellow.

Flared Trousers

Flares did become famous in the Seventies and yes, they are still worn to fancy-dress parties. But the fact of the matter is that skinny shapes are fading, prompting new trouser silhouettes – namely straight-leg, wide-leg and tailored flares. This is perfect for the summer because the fabric is breathable and cosy. I couldn’t actually live without my flares during the summer months.

Flares at the way ...Flares the way …

Now, unlike the straight or skinny shape, flares make a statement. Victoria Beckham, Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung are all fans. I have gone classic and matched tailored flares with a simple T-shirt. The shift in movement is so prominent and I adore how this looks. I have opted for a print version because this summer is all about the prints.

I feel as if I have been taken back to the 70s with wearing flares. From flared trousers in high waisted fits, to flared leggings in standout prints (like I am wearing) and easy to wear jersey separates. You can wear flares in many ways but for the summer months the prints are the way to go.

This is such an easy outfit for me to slip on and looks so stylish. You can’t complain and you are onto a complete winner when you are wearing this. I adore it so much.
