It’s definitely getting to that time of year, when you finally consign to the back of the cupboard all your winter cords and jeans and bring out your favourite cropped trousers, capri pants or cargo pants, to wear with heels, flats or sandals.
With cropped trousers of course you have to be careful, as if they’re the wrong length or fit they can make you look both wider and shorter, something we all want to avoid particularly the vertically challenged like me, however a great pair worn simply with a sleek t, heels and a slouchy bag can take you from work to weekend with no trouble at all, the best weigh next to nothing usually making them eminently packable and a black and a neutral pair will take you everywhere.
These are my favourites – best advice is to see what you already have, check for fit (particularly the back view) and then go and pick up a new pair. They’ll become your summer best friends almost instantly.
Don’t you just get that feeling that the sunshine is around the next corner? Here’s hoping, anyway………
