Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCiara Inspo Image

As we approach the final weeks of sweet summer, you’ll start to notice the change in temperature and that some days are no longer as scorching hot as they once were. As fun as it has been getting to show off our bare legs all season long and take a much-needed break from our skinny jeans when those August summer nights roll around our freshly tanned legs run the risk of catching a chill.

Therefore, we would like to suggest a few ways to still keep your light, summer fashion vibes alive and well until the bitter end. Don’t jump into your skinny black jeans just yet, try out these fun, fashionable summer pants first and let your summer wardrobe see its days through.

1. Harem pant

High Waisted Slim Harem Pant    

With a super feminine bow to cinch the waist and a variety of basic colors to play around with, this pant is not only comfortable and lightweight but can take you from the office and out into the night. The high waist is ultra flattering and this style looks great with a classic pair of pumps and a flirty top for a cool summer night out. Whether you go navy, beige or cream try to go for the lighter basic colors to compliment the rest of your summer wardrobe.

2. floral pant

Silky Florals

Nothing says summer fashion like a killer floral pattern and the focus here is florals for your bottom half. A bold pair of silk floral pants will take your summer wardrobe to the next level; they are loose fitting, light and effortless and they make quite a fashion forward statement. You can never go wrong with a strong floral pattern especially for this time of year. They’ll be perfect for those beach holidays or classy pool parties as well.

3. linen pant

Light Linens

Straight linen pants with a drawstring are the perfect summer pants for being on the go in the day or attending a casual summer party at night. Linen pants are the most appropriate in terms of staying cool in hot weather and they also give off a very chic, bohemian style and go with just about every possible summer outfit scenario. Try them casual with a pair of converse or flat sandals or dress them up with a sandal pump. Keep the look simple, effortless and tasteful.

4. stripes

Striking Stripes

Whether the pattern is of linen or silk, loose, fitted or wide legged, striped pants for summer are all the rage. The striped pattern is playful, stylish and easy to pair with basics. They look great with white and summer accessories like a straw hat or fedora and a nude sandal. White stripes on solid navy are the ideal and classic color scheme to try, however, there are several different basic colored stripe patterns you can play around with and see which one best compliments your wardrobe and style.
