No prizes for guessing when light trousers feel most relevant. Summer, obviously. So if you’re feeling brave enough go for the lightest shade you can find (although it goes without saying that stark white is better suited to those with a tan). Most men’s apprehension about wearing white trousers stems from a desire not to look like an extra from Saturday Night Fever, so to minimise risk, tend towards a slim cut.
Then keep things simple. White trousers are a statement so a navy Cuban collar shirt, penny loafers and a pair of sunglasses are all that you’ll need.
