Summer can make us lazy when it comes to getting dressed—hello tanks tops and cutoffs. But let’s face it, on most days life calls for something put together. Even more insufferable than pulling off a sophisticated look in blazing temps is the idea of incorporating pants into it. Our solution: the new lightweight flared trousers, rendered in floaty fabrics and punchy prints. As weightless as a breezy dress, they offer polished appeal for the office, drinks and casual-cool affairs. Simply combine with a T-shirt and heels, and voilà, you’re done. Here, 11 chic takes to live in this season.
