Spring and summer style from Cotton Traders - trouser edit


With the arrival of spring, and summer on the horizon, it is time to pack away the winter wardrobe and embrace a spring/summer wardrobe. 

As British spring and summer weather can be a tad temperamental with rain showers one day and bright sunshine the next, my spring/summer style often consists of trousers as they are great in all weathers. Trousers can offer protection from all weathers, warmth from the chilly rain and cover from the burning sun, as well as comfort and style. The beauty of a good pair of trousers is that they can be styled so many different ways and can be dressed up for a smart style or down for a casual, effortless look. 

To help me achieve my spring/summer style my go to company is Cotton Traders and their terrific range of trousers. Not only do they have a fabulous range of trousers that fit and flatter, but their expansive range of trousers from cropped trousers to jeans to crinkled trousers means there’s a style for every occasion. Here are a few of Cotton Traders’ trousers that will be in my spring/summer wardrobe this year. 


A staple part of my wardrobe is jeans. They are perfect for a casual look but can also be dressed up for a smart, chic style.

I love these Lottie relaxed slim leg jeans in washed blue from Cotton Traders. I adore the on-trend slim tapered leg and the soft and stretchy cotton-rich denim. They really are the winning combo of comfort and cool that will be the denim of my dreams this spring and summer. 

I’d style them with a gorgeous blouse, such as this pretty all-over printed blouse in pale camel. This woven fabric blouse offers a flattering fit with stylish details such as the delicate faux shell buttons, and the breezy blouse is ideal the warmer days ahead. They’d also look lovely with this super pretty all-over lace short sleeve top that has a gorgeous lace pattern and charming edges.

Wide leg

I love a pair of wide leg trousers in spring and summer as they are a great statement trouser that can be worn in a relaxed manner and they can also be styled with accessories for a more stylish look.

I love flattering drapey fabric for wide leg trousers such as the Sienna printed pull on wide leg trousers in bright blue that are eye-catching and wonderful for spring and summer escapades. The perfect balance between smart and casual, they are practical and comfy.

I’d style these with a soft jersey top or this colourful tilly short sleeve tie front top. Light and airy, this top has a flattering v-neck and on-trend tie-front that would look fantastic with the wide leg trousers.

To finish off the look I’d wear them with a pair of comfortable and versatile wedge heels. The oh-so-chic slingback style wedges with wood-effect wedge heel has a subtle snakeskin-textured finish in nude for added glamour to the look

Linen blend trousers

Cool and comfortable, linen blend relaxed fit trousers are ideal for spring and summer days and nights. These lovely trousers in navy offer effortless elegance that are a staple item in any wardrobe.

For added comfort and style I’d wear them with a softly textured cotton blouse such as this stunning pip long sleeve embroidered blouse in a choice of navy with floral embroidery or ivory with lemon embroidery. I adore both styles that would look lovely with the linen blend trousers for the sunnier seasons ahead. 

Crop trousers

In spring and summer my wardrobe always has a few pairs of crop trousers. A staple spring/summer item of clothing they can be worn casually or dressed up for a smart, stylish look.

A pair of premium denim crop jeans are a great staple item that can be worn in so many ways that look great worn with a pair of white trainers or a wedge heel, with a simple plain vest or a soft jersey top. 

I like these flattering crop jeans in washed blue with supersoft cotton-rich denim in straight-leg that look oh-so-comfortable. I’d wear them with this beautiful embroidered blouse in white or for a splash of colour bright blue mist. Cool and comfortable, the pure cotton blouse would leave me walking on sunshine this season and beyond. Likewise I’d style them with this printed crinkle top in pale cream, as the elegant blouse would be the perfect way to dress up a pair of crop jeans.

I also love these perfect stretch crop trousers that are available in a range of colours such as wear with anything white or bright aqua for a splash of colour this spring/summer.

Perfect for summer evenings, I’d wear the white crop trousers with this absolutely stunning, as seen on TV Kim printed kimono cover-up. The exclusive Japanese-inspired print has a wonderful vibrant orange hue and delicate oriental design.
