Can someone explain to me how, just a few weeks back, it was sweater weather and now… it’s hella hot? Whether it’s Dilli ki garmi, or Bombay ki humidity, there’s no running from rising temperatures this month. The weather Gods have descended upon us and they’re turning up the heat. If you haven’t put away your winter wear, it’s high time you do it now. Make space for your summer digs and do it fast. Speaking of which, warm weather favourites like skirts, dresses and playsuits see the light of day once again.
Flirty dresses are great but don’t go ignoring pants this season. No, I’m not crazy. Yes, I’m talking about pants in the summer. But what you don’t know is, that I’m not referring to skin tight, thick trousers that leave your legs gasping for air. I’ve rounded up a few blessed pairs that will elevate your summer style game without the chafed-thighs part. Or those dreaded sweat stains (ew!). From slit detail to wide-legged pants, these pairs are all the summer romance you need:
Dare To Flare
These flared culottes are perfect for cocktail hours. One, because they remind me of rose, and two because they’re flirty and sophisticated at the same time. The breezy chiffon leaves no room for disappointment. Best warm weather find ever, amirite?
Who’s The Boss?
Your #GirlBoss moment is only a pair of pants away. All you need to get there are these office worthy skorts cum culottes. What makes culottes great for summers is that they are both, wide-legged and cropped. Warm weather, come at me, bro.
Could there be a more summer-worthy pair of pants? I doubt it. I mean, the cool khaki colour, the super wide-legged silhouette and the paperbag waist… Love! Heading out for a casual brunch or movie? Wear this with a plain white tee and block heels.
Breezy Boho Pair
Prep your wardrobe for the summer with lots of white in your closet. Why don’t you get started with this geometric print cropped pair? I love these pants, mostly because they’ll sail you through many a summer outfit. Wear them with a kurta, or a classic pastel shirt, and bohemian style flats.
All Hail The Slit
Slits are a Godsend in the summer, aren’t they? Go for relaxed palazzo pants with slit detail, like these floral ones, to pair with your basics. Also, when warm weather comes calling, remember to play with colour and prints to brighten up your OOTD.
Who says all denim has to be thick and stiff? Switch your regular jeans for chambray and denim blends to cheat the heat, this season. These straight cut cropped pants are perfect for an adventurous day out in the sun.
Whether you’re heading to a formal event or chilling with your girlfriends at the neighbourhood bar, these pants will take you there. I’m loving the stud detailing on the front slits, aren’t you? Pair them with a vibrant top and shiny loafers to up your outfit game.
Say It With Satin
Pick cooling materials like chiffon and satin to add to your cart this summer. This warm weather pair of pants is your key to a kickass street style wardrobe. Club these cropped satin joggers with a crisp white shirt and matching sneakers for a street chic vibe.
Stay On Track
Get with the 80s sportswear trend, and invest in a pair of wide-legged track pants this season. Wear this side striped pair with a cropped shirt, and patent pumps for a killer din-drinks combination.
Bring Your Boyfriend
Boyfriend jeans with a couple of rips here and there = warm weather miracle. The relaxed silhouette and fit gives your legs space to breathe. Also, this pair, in particular, has a super cool floral embroidery that screams ‘summer’. So cool! Wear these with your favourite basics, and you’re set.
