Trainers and wide leg trousers

I've seen this look a few times on Pinterest and wondered if I could pull it off. What do you think? I have to say I like it but I'm not 100% convinced by it .. I can't work out why.


The key to  making this work is a tighter top half to compensate for the baggy bottom. I wonder if black trousers would look better?

Trainers, I told you I wouldn't be able to take them off once I bought them are so comfy (and stylish, even if I do say so myself).

Where to buy white linen trousers?

Next - £30


Marks & Spencer - £32 (was £99)


Topshop - £45



Don't just to white though (what with it being Autumn already). I've got some black trousers and will see if I can make the look work again in the near future

ASOS - £25


Mango - £49.99


Wide leg trousers and trainers - yes or no for you?

  1. Believe it or not this works but I would change one thing - the necklace. A simple small chain to pare it back a little more. But that's just me.

    And what I would give to have legs as long as yours!

    1. I didn't have the necklace on at first at thought 'that's a boring outfit' - I should have stuck to my long metal chain that's more delicate. THANK YOU!!!!!

  2. Susie So So is very clever isn't she? Because I liked the look but couldn't figure out what was slightly wrong and it's the necklace. It's very a very sporty/preppy/yummy Mummy all rolled into one kind of outfit - the sort of thing you see the trendy Mums wear when they've dashed to the school run after a game of tennis and coffee in the club! I like it :)

    1. Lovely compliment thank you - it was an easy to put together and wear outfit for school run/work/home (did remove trousers for leggings when I got home and was eating spag bol for tea)!!!

  3. I would like to see you style the trainers with a darker trousers too! I tried that with my Stan Smiths when I dug my vintages ones out of the attic last year! I think they would look fantastic with a black wide trouser of you! It's a bit all white on the bottom half for me :0) xx

  4. I agree with Sue - but I'm not a necklace person at all! LOVE your hair - you look so fabulous! x

  5. Sue is spot on but I'm also in Michelles camp & think darker trousers would look amazing but I'm not a white linen trouser girl! I lived in them when I first had my son & over dosed on them I think! Ax

    1. I'm hearing everyone and shall re-style it very soon. I think black will be key to this

  6. I love white linen trousers but I couldn't wear them with trainers. I like this but it's not my favourite look, Fiona. Perhaps the necklace would make it even better as Sue said? Lynne x

  7. I love this look, would wear with a shirt for slightly more tailored look and would definitely try with darker trousers!

  8. I'm just struggling with the whole wider trouser thing generally...I think if you have the legs, flaunt them. I agree with most of the comments above...it looks a bit cricket/bowling club with the all white. I'd try a different colour trouser also. Ax
