Men's summer fashion: jazzy trousers - video

For far too long, trousers have been the sober staple in your wardrobe, but this summer the international catwalks, from Gucci to Lanvin, were jostling with jazzy strides. It's time to let the sun in and experiment with printed silks, bold patterns and bright colours. Team with plain T-shirts or be truly fashion forward and go for head-to-toe print – sunglasses optional. The Observer fashion team show you how to wear this look, shot on location in Averio Portugal
