Ideal for throwing on with a relaxed T-shirt and sandals for an effortless yet chic holiday look, they're everything you would want from a pair of summer trousers: wide-legged, high-waisted, and, most importantly, elasticated.

Not just that, they're also made from a lightweight, sustainably-sourced viscose for ultimate comfort. Super affordable at just £22.50, we don't see these hanging around for long...

For starters, you can expect to get a ton of wear out of these effortless and versatile wide-leg trousers. They can be paired with a slouchy top and sandals for a day of exploring on your summer holiday, or with trainers and a denim jacket for an easy, throw-on everyday look you wear on repeat.

They're designed with a breathable and flattering wide-leg cut, an elasticated waist, and a cropped hem for optimum all-day comfort. Not stopping there, they even come with handy pockets, making them the perfect summer trousers that combine style, comfort, and practicality.

Available in a wide range of sizes, 6 to 24, they come in short, regular and long for the perfect fit depending on your height.

Marketed as cropped trousers, a handful of shoppers have even opted for the longer length for a standard, full-length fit — "Lovely wide leg trousers. I bought the long length as I wanted them grazing my ankle rather than cropped."

If the cut wasn't already enough of a reason to snap these versatile trousers up, they also come in a choice of four summery prints including a navy and white pattern, green floral design and a striking khaki print.

The reviews speak for themselves when it comes to this versatile pair of trousers, with happy shoppers hailing them perfect for summer.

  • "Super smart wide leg trousers - I bought the navy pattern which look super smart and far more expensive than they are."

  • "These wide leg trousers are so comfy to wear. Can be dressed up for smart or dressed down for casual, summer wear. I love the cut, the colour and the fabric."

  • "Love them! So on trend. I've had loads of compliments wearing them!!"

  • Stylish and comfortable culottes. I ordered the short so they were more like culottes and less like cropped trousers. Lovely cool material, so nice to buy summer clothes not in a jersey material. Quite a generous fit. Probably could have gone down a size from a 14."

  • "Lovely pair of summer cropped trousers. Perfect length. Fabulous colour. Great quality. Brilliant material and very reasonably priced."

  • "Love these summery lightweight cropped trousers!!!"
