We spoke to our designers – the people who create and perfect your clothes – to discover four ways to wear white trousers this summer.

Ikat V-neck Tunic 6460

With bold colours

One of the joys of white trousers is that they go with virtually every other colour.

Create a bold look, boost your mood and brighten your skin with a radiant colour block. Our Textured V-neck Jersey Top is flattering and feminine, with a front lining and exclusive textured fabric in irresistible raspberry pink. For holidays and hot weather, try slipping on this Notch Neck EcoVero™ Tunic with your women's white trousers. The semi-sheer EcoVero is sustainably produced and featherlight against the skin. The perfect way to protect your arms from the midday sunshine.

Captivated by the new prints in our latest collection? Choose your favourite and enjoy an exclusive look with your white trousers. This Mandala Cotton-silk Overshirt is a gorgeous choice in the lightest, chicest silk blend.

Cotton-linen Stripe Top

White trousers and stripes

Alone, stripes are timeless. But pair them with white trousers, and you create a look that’s instantly classic. The combination of crisp white and flattering stripes is quintessentially refined, withstanding the test of time and feeling stylish at every occasion.

Capture the nautical style of your white trousers with this Tie-hem Striped Top. Available in emerald green or classic navy, the soft front tie adds interest to casual looks. We’ve also crafted the tops from soft, stretchy jersey fabric and added grown-on sleeves for effortless wear.

Our Cotton-linen Stripe Top is equally easy to slip on, this time in a cooling blend of cotton and linen. We’ve kept the style relaxed, with a gentle fit and dipped back hem, and added subtle detail with a button-down back and turnback cuffs.

Soft Lace-Trimmed Vest 4875

Tonal Whites

The understated elegance of an all-white outfit feels so special to wear. A pristine white blouse or ivory top, paired with perfectly fitting white trousers… simple, striking yet easy to achieve.

Our Smart Uncrushable Trousers are ideal for this look. Their flat-fronted elastic waistband is especially graceful, creating a smooth line under tops while fitting comfortably around the waist.

Simply pull on their flattering, straight-leg design with our Soft-lace trimmed Vest in Ivory for a look of polished refinement. If it’s cool – or you want to dial up the sophistication – reach for our Classic Occasion Jacket. The textured fabric, boxy fit and sublime satin lining are the height of elegance.

Satin-lined Textured Jacket 4080


White trousers are just as easy to wear when the sun’s high and hot as when there’s a chill in the air. All that’s required is a shift in styling.

A jacket is an opportunity to elevate your look while adding a stylish layer of warmth. Our Satin-lined Textured Jacket or Luxury Statement Jacquard Jacket create an exquisite interplay of textures when paired with crisp white trousers. The result is a classic, put-together look for all your smart events this summer.

For a more laidback aesthetic, pair white trousers with mid-season knits. The Pure Cotton Knitted Jacket provides cosy comfort while staying wearable in warm weather – we’ve crafted from organic cotton yarn for a knit that’s breathable and soft.

What’s your favourite way to wear your white trousers? Whichever style or colour you choose, you can look forward to discovering a whole range of British-made, exclusive pieces in our new collection.
