24092015 SUMMER PANTS

Summer pants can be a tricky one. The most important thing to look for with summer pants is that they are cool enough to wear in an Australian summer.

I would recommend a linen, cotton or a viscose fabric. Avoid anything hot like polyester.

With the ¾ pant, ensure that they are more of a 7/8 pant – that finishes closer to the ankle and does not cut you off at the widest part of your leg. You most certainly can go for something full length, just keep it relaxed and cool. With a more relaxed style, you can go for a great crinkle fabric. Patterns in this style are good too.
