When it comes to perfecting our summer wardrobe, one of the biggest challenges is finding a pair of go-to trousers that we can wear on the regular. From comfortable waistlines to breathable fabrics, a staple pair of summer trousers need to have it all - and tapered trousers are at the top of our wishlist this season.
Designed with a flexible waist and often an ankle-grazing fit, tapered trousers look just as stylish teamed with a pair of heels and a blouse for a smart workwear look as they are with an oversized shirt and flats for a laid-back style - not to mention how flattering the timeless trousers are.
From H&M to Marks & Spencer, Mango and more, shop the edit of the best tapered trousers that you need to elevate your wardrobe this summer.
