We're no strangers to a staple pair of wide leg trousers. In fact, we would go as far as saying we're pretty clued up when it comes to finding the perfect pair.
And while M&S might have a great range of options, the pair that have caught our eye most recently are Mint Velvet's Wide Leg Palazzo Trousers, which are just £39 from John Lewis. Having previously sold out fast, they're now back in stock in all sizes, so we suggest snapping them up while you can.
Complete with smart tailoring details, plus a flattering high waist and wide-legged fit, they've been described by shoppers as "so comfortable and classy", which is a perfect combination.
Great for everyday wear, you can easily dress them up for a night on the town or pair with a blouse for your weekly trip to the office. At just under £40, we think they're sure to be a hard-working item in your 2024 wardrobe.
Why we rate it
Made from a soft viscose blend, they feature an elasticated high waist for optimum comfort, alongside two slit pockets on either leg, and a full-length hem.
They're simple but sophisticated in style, and are versatile enough to look good with a whole range of pieces, from smart blouses to casual oversized jumpers.
The wide leg cut itself is flattering and suitable for all body shapes. One shopper even said the trousers "look so stylish and hang beautifully."
If that wasn't enough, they're available in a wide variety of sizes, from XS to XL. As for which size you'd be? Mint Velvet recommends S (size 10), M (size 12), L (size 14), XL (size 16).
With all of that taken into consideration, it's no wonder they're a current best-seller at John Lewis. So, if you're keen to get your hands on a new pair of trusty trousers for the year ahead, we suggest snapping up this pair fast.
