Tackling White Tailored Trousers

While I was putting an outfit together for the Chelsea Flower Show this week, I realised that my wardrobe was missing a pair of white tailored trousers.  There is something so elegant and chic about a pair of white trousers, as long as they are not too tight, not too see-through, the right cut and the right length. Not asking too much is it?! Well, I didn’t think so, but here’s how I got on…

My first stop was M&S, where I found two pairs that looked promising.

Cropped Culottes

Cropped Culottes M&S – £29.50 

Sadly they did not have my size, as these looked like they would be the perfect length on me.

I also really liked the look of these, but they didn’t have my size either. (There’s a bit of a theme running through this blog post…)

wide leg

M&S Wide Leg Trousers – £35

Moving on to Next were these culottes, unavailable in my size, surprise, surprise…

cream culottes

Next Cream Culottes – £45

La Redoute have these that might be worth a try, especially since they have 40% off at the moment.

Wide Leg La Redoute

La Redoute – £59 (plus 40% off with code BIG40)

White High Frill

ASOS – £75

I think these are my favourite, I love their high, paper bag style waist. I am not sure if they would suit me, but I have ordered them to try.

I also really like the look of these linen culottes.

ASOS – £25

Then there are these tailored culottes from ASOS, which I absolutely love in this photo, but I have a feeling they would completely drown me.

ASOS – £40

This is the look/ length that I am after… (image from Pinterest)

white trews

Moving on to slightly higher end, are these GOEN J (never heard of this brand?) at

The Outnet.

Wool blend culottes

Wool Blend Culottes – Now £264.15

Hugely tempted by these ivory crepe Culottes from Philip Lim. (Not so tempted by the idea of dry clean only,  however!)

Crepe

Crepe Culottes – Philip Lim – now £132

These wide leg forever pants from Me + Em are gorgeous and very flattering on. Sadly they have sold out in my size.

Wide Leg Forever Pants – £149

I picked these up from Zara, but they are heading back as they are just too see-through and not very flattering. (Also the wrong length on me) BUT I am determined to find a pair that work as I think they are such an elegant look for the summer. Wish me luck!

Happy Shopping.

Love,

    I’m also looking for white tailored trousers but can’t do wide leg unfortunately due to my height – couple of inches shorter than you

  2. That’s so funny I had been on the exact same hunt too. I had also been thinking of a vibrant pink but couldn’t find any. I struck gold in a Ted Baker in an outlet place – delighted with them. I’ll be wearing them to my sister’s wedding next month!
