I fell in love with a pair of broderie anglais pants last week, I blame all the shirts we have been obsessing over.

When I spied these trousers, Lauren Bacall came into mind, looking languid and elegant. I have a fear of mosquitos and anything, that offers my legs some protection is high on my packing list.

The main concern is what to pair them with, to protect ones modestly and look current ? Denim shirts always work and if it is too warm, I would go for a longer length vest. Valentino had a great pair this season and Zimmerman always stock a version.

The ones featured below are from Serena Bute, they are expensive but the best pair on the market and they are stocked at Matches. They also come in black. You can wear these over a bikini and they are also perfect and airy to throw on in the evening. I find it so hard to find lightweight items, to wear when it is hot in the Summer, these trousers are perfect.

Broderie Anglais trousers

I have checked the highstreet and there are versions out there.

Check out Maje, there is a white lace pair in sale. This pair from Mango are wide legged and in cotton and in easy to wear black. You can also check Valentino as they have a great pair  on sale.

Think Lauren Hutton, billowy broderie anglais  trousers with a pair of wedges and a denim shirt .
