If you're after a pair of trousers that are supremely flattering, affordable and the perfect piece whether you're off on holiday, spending a day in the office, having a picnic with friends, or simply lazing on the sofa – we've found them for you.

And, as ever, it's all thanks to M&S, who continue to roll out hit after sell-out hit on the fashion front.

We added these printed wide leg cropped trousers (£19.50) to our baskets the minute we saw them. The affordable price point also means we can buy more than one pair – which is handy because there are so many different prints to choose from.

(And don't forget, by simply spending £30 on clothing, home or beauty, you can get this incredible M&S Beauty Bag, bursting with big-name products and worth £160, for a mere £25.)

Why we rate them

The cropped length of the trousers means that they're summer-ready, while the floaty, wide-leg style is not only flattering, but also airy when the weather gets warmer.

Made from sustainably sourced viscose, the comfort factor is upped considerably via the elasticated panel at the back.

And, yes, these high-waisted gems have pockets at the sides, and come in sizes 6-24.

There are four gorgeous, statement patterns to choose from – a blue mix pattern, a pink 70s style print, a striking monochrome look and, our favourite, a coral animal print.

Although the prints are bold, that doesn't mean these trousers aren't versatile.

In fact, every pair could be teamed with multiple tops – from white or black T-shirts and vest-tops to light knits in contrasting colours, denim or leather jackets, a khaki 'shacket', blazers... to name a handful of ways you can change up your look.

Of course, footwear won't be an issue either – whether it's flip flops or high tops, strappy sandals to slides, these trousers will work with pretty much any of your summer shoes.

What the reviews say

The stunning, statement trousers rate highly with M&S shoppers with many commenting on how light and nice the fabric is, how stylish yet comfortable they are, and, crucially, many noted that they don't crease easily. Let's face it, anything that reduces ironing time is a winner...

  • "Lovely fit, and so comfortable to wear, feels a bit more summery than just regular crop trousers, and look great with my denim jacket – might buy another colour, I like them so much."

  • "Exactly what I was looking for, in a great print, lightweight material, VERY comfortable and a fantastic price! What more can I ask for?"

  • "Stylish, comfortable and colourful! I bought the orange ones. They make a statement and look great with a white or black top. I bought my usual size and they fit well."

  • "Lovely cool silky material. They flow beautifully. Ideal for holiday wear day or night."

  • "M&S has really got it. These trousers are so trendy and comfortable to wear. The material is light and doesn't crease easily. The fit is perfect. The elastic waist on the back is so practical and adds a nice and sassy feature to the whole piece. It is a winner, so strongly recommend it!"
