If we tell you that these expensive-looking, super flattering, jersey wide-leg trousers are one of Marks & Spencer's (M&S) best-sellers, we're sure you won't be the slightest bit surprised.

For starters, at £17.50, the incredibly affordable price-point has serious wow factor.

But so do the trousers themselves. With over 1,000 reviews (and counting) and just over 70% giving this pull-on pants style four-or-five star ratings, this is a bargain buy that lives up to expectations and more.

We think they've caused a sensation with M&S shoppers because the lure of an elastic waistband is still proving way too hard to resist. (We hear you).

But the beauty of the M&S Collection Jersey Wide Leg Trousers with Stretch is that they're also one of those wardrobe staples that you can dress up for work and going out, but they're comfy enough for lounging in or when sitting down for eight or more hours while sweating over a hot laptop.

Any wonder they've caught the eye of thousands of shoppers already.

Why we rate them

They're Comfortable (with a capital C, yes). The pull-on trousers have a soft, jersey feel with a hint of stretch, and a high, elasticated waist.

And the wide-leg cut is not too billowy, making them universally flattering for all body types.

We love that you can wear them with everything from Bretons to bodysuits or a kimono-style jacket that ties around the waist, or you can also smarten them up for work with a nice shirt and a blazer.

As for going out? Just add a sparkly or off-the-shoulder top with statement earrings or a sequin blazer and white vest top underneath. They also work with trainers, mules and strappy sandals.

And of course, teamed with a thick jumper and chunky boots, these trousers will easily slot into your life throughout autumn/winter too.

By changing accessories, you can dress these up for work or play. (M&S)

As well as black, they come in three other versatile hues: dark charcoal, dark navy, and dark khaki.

One customer even said she's "got these trousers in all the colours, they’re super."

As ever, M&S has kept in mind the varying sizes of their customers, they're available in sizes 6 to 24 and in five different lengths : extra short, petite, regular, long and extra long (there's a handy size guide that can help you work out which one is best for you).

They're washable on a 40°C delicate cycle too. And although M&S recommends ironing on a cool temperature, we reckon these won't crush easily, so that's another plus point to add to the list.

What the reviews say

Comfort, fit, quality, versatility and value for money are just some of the many positives customers have picked out when it comes to these Jersey Wide Leg Trousers with Stretch. Any wonder shoppers are buying them in multiple colours.

  • "This is the 4th pair I've bought in different colours but all are a great fit very comfortable for work and smart day wear."

  • "Love these trousers they are comfortable and are made of a lovely soft fabric. Great fit thinking of buying in another colour."

  • "These trousers are lovely, really comfy but look super smart. You can also dress down with a T-shirt. They retain their shape and look great."

  • "Lovely trousers, great fit, ideal length, excellent value for money (in fact they look far more expensive than they were). Wash well & don't need ironing if using delicate wash cycle. I've also got them in black."

  • "Fabulous stretchy jersey trousers with a modern wide leg. So comfortable and easy to wear."
