If you cast your mind back to summer 2020, you might remember the polka dot culottes from Marks & Spencer that sold out in record time.

And it's little wonder, given that culottes are an ideal spring/summer garment, as they work for any occasion, whether that is for the office or a party.

They are a super versatile wardrobe staple, easily paired with trainers and a T-shirt, or heels for a more glamorous affair. 

Though we can't tell you if or when the original polka dot culottes will be back, M&S has just brought out a very similar style in animal print.

The Animal Print Wide Leg Culottes, which come in cream and black designs, are both flattering, comfortable and an ideal throw-on for the next few months of garden parties.

Why we rate it:

Firstly, we're a fan of anything animal print, and already have a wardrobe full of leopard patterns, so this makes for a welcome change. 

The flattering high waist design with elasticated detailing makes these culottes both comfortable and easy to move around in - ideal whether you're lounging in the garden or meandering around your neighbourhood. 

Plus, they've got pockets (always a bonus!) and are made from sustainably-sourced material. 

For only £19.50, they're definitely an affordable sartorial pick me up, which we'll be adding to our basket ASAP. 

What the reviews say:

  • "Great alternative to a skirt for summer. Cool, floaty and comfortable. Great waistband and lovely length. The material is quite thin, so be aware if you buy the lighter colour way."

  • "Bought both patterns in these very comfy and on trend wide leg trousers. The elasticated waist isn't fussy or old fashioned looking and the waist band sits flat and comfortably. I bought these as an alternative to a skirt and they go with trainers, light coloured summer ankle boots and sandals, of course when weather permits! They are true to size, I purchased size 14. I am quite tall and are a good length sitting just below the calf."

  • "Not worn them yet but I love them, they will be great for warmer days. They are very comfortable and look good too (not just my opinion). Great price too. Well done M&S."
