Summer trousers

Where oh where oh where can I find nice summer trousers?

I'm currently hovering at an uncomfortably high weight for me, and at 5ft 10 am feeling a bit lumpy and dowdy.

I want some lovely summer trousers - ideally not utilitarian/ sportsweary. No polyester - would love something cool and flowy and elegant in natural fabrics.

Not too low-waisted. I love proper harem-style ones and loose culottes - nothing too formal, I'm thinking chic and insouciant rather than dressy.

I don't look bad but I'm not small - size 14 or so, and actually quite plump at the moment, though I carry it well.

Hoping for neutral/ darker shades though not entirely averse to pattern.

Oh and high street prices, ideally.

Am I kidding myself here?!

If you're looking for low-ish prices, try matalan. They have a range of palazzo pants (patterned and non-patterned), plus linen trousers in a range of colours.

Sainsburys tu also have linen trousers (although I've not checked their colours etc). Next also have some decent ones.
