My recent Instagram story with shopping tips regarding high-waisted jeans was a big hit, so I decided to give you more shopping inspiration for good basics in the future! Let’s kick off right away.
While scrolling through Instagram I come across lots of amazing pictures with inspiring outfits that I’d like to try myself. I save the more crazy ones as a starting point to try something slightly different with my own wardrobe, but when I discover the PERFECT basic look I sometimes become a real copycat. I. Need. That. Piece.
This is exactly what happened when I bumped into one of Katharina‘s pictures (she’s the queen of quality must-haves) and instantly fell in love with these trousers! I had been looking for loose, classy Summer trousers in white, cream or beige for a few seasons now and these looked pretty much perfect to me. My search led me to Mango and I ended up ordering not only these chic white beauties, but also a pair of beautiful creamy ones — just to compare, you know.
Annnnnd that usually leads to me keeping both pairs, as they are so so different and I could wear one pair while the other one is in laundry etc etc etc 🙂 But then… I bumped into ANOTHER pair at H&M. And they were so different too (lol)! Wide oatmeal coloured linen trousers with a belt and the perfect fit for my curves.
You can tell I got quite lucky; I found all 3 options that I was looking for for so many years in only a month. Find all of them right below! I bought the Mango trousers during a short online sale weekend, so you might want to keep an eye on the website if you want to purchase them with a discount as well.
1. Mango white trousers, €59,99. This pair is super chic, crispy white and perfect for fancy dinner parties and holiday nights out. Good to know: I opted for size 38, while I usually wear size 40 at Mango. They fit per-fect-ly around my waist and are wide enough to fit zha bum. Also, these are SUPER long. Win! Find them here.
2. H&M oatmeal trousers, €34,99. Linen is definitely my favourite fabric to wear during the hottest months, so a pair of long, breezy linen pants was very welcome in my Summer wardrobe. The belt is a huge advantage if you have a tiny waist and curvy bottom! I got these in size 40, which is my usual size for pants at H&M. Find them here.
3. Mango cream trousers, €49,99. Andddd finally these stunning creamy ones! Another very convenient belt to tighten things up, especially if you got the trousers a bit oversized, like I did. The 38 fitted perfectly, but I thought they looked a lot cooler in a more slouchy size 40. I wore them here on the gram! Find them here.
