The list goes on for reasons why women need to choose to wear pants during summertime but other than comfort, the chic factor of lightweight and summer-friendly pants make them stand out too. That’s why we’re more than happy to share with you our favorite pants to try this summer!

1. Wide leg/Flared pants

Wide-leg pants are a voluminous silhouette of pants that will remind you of a maxi skirt, if the flare is a lot and of a fishtail skirt, if the flare is more tailored. Either way, it makes a great choice and replacement for skirts. Designers this year are offering beautiful designs made of viscose, silk, and chiffon. in great prints and color options. Softer fabrics will give you a perfect airy movement. Speaking of color palette, this year is perfect to play with colors, be it pastel shades like lilac, blush and champagne hues or classics like black. Style ninjas advise you to mix up various styles, by teaming dressy bottoms with casual tops and jackets, creating your own personalised exclusive looks. If you pick a high-waisted flared bottom, draw attention to your waistline, which in turn will accentuate your whole silhouette. Worry not about hiding any flaws because girl, you’re beautiful as you are!
