With a jolly booked to Barcelona next week, my summer wardrobe is in need of an update. Unfortunately EasyJet has pretty much cleaned out my bank account (I don't want to talk about it, I'm useless at booking flights and left it far too late...), so I'm on a serious shoestring. As I'm sure I'm not the only moron with a ineptitude for budgeting, I thought I'd put together a thrifty holiday wardrobe edit. Even if you do have cash to flash, I wouldn't recommend blowing the budget on your s/s looks. Why? Well it goes without saying that the British weather presents little opportunity to wear anything vaguely suited the tropics (hello stratospheric cost per wear!) Summer's key fabrics - cotton, linen, chambray are also cheap to produce and easily found on the high street. The moral of this story; your summer clothes really don't have to break the bank, even if your EasyJet flights do ....

Budget Summer Capsule Wardrobe

I don’t wear wide leg trousers - in fact, they scare me. There’s something about all that surplus fabric swishing around the ankles that feels like a death trap (they’re just asking to be chewed up by the tube escalator, surely?) However, after years of the wide-leg fear, something funny has happened. I’ve seen the light and my eye has been turned by a slouchier silhouette.

I blame ME & EM – if you’re unfamiliar with the brand, ME & EM are a cool womenswear label with a focus on modern, simple dressing. Their catalogue is beautifully styled – think wide leg pants paired with box-fresh Stan Smiths for a look that’s as effortless and cool as they come. 

In what can only be described as fashion fate, a few weeks ago, following a press sample clear-out at work (perks of the job) I found myself in possession of a lonely pair of white wide-leg trousers (yup, as impractical as they come) in need of a home. So it only seemed right to style then up on here and see how the whole look worked out…
