I have fallen in love with denim culottes this summer. They are comfortable, easy-to-wear and bang on trend. They are also perfect for this ‘in between’ weather that we’ve been having: warm and sunny one day and pouring with rain the next.

What I love about them is their versatility. I found myself a pair from M&S – more cropped wide trousers – which are sadly now sold out (these Mango Cropped Nicky Jeans, £29.99, are a good alternative)- but I have worn them with peasant tops, pretty blouses, even a cosy knit, as well as flipflops, ballet pumps and Adidas trainers. Whatever you choose to wear with denim culottes, they look great.

They’re not necessarily that obvious in the shops, scour M&S and you’ll be lucky to fine any at all. But I”ve done the work for you, and as well as the ones pictured below, some of my favourites include Boden Eton Crop Wide Leg Trousers, reduced from £69.50 to £52.12 (currently 25% off), ASOS Denim Super Wide Slouch Sally Jean, £40, and M.i.h Jeans washed out Topanga Jean, £225.

I’ll definitely be stocking up on another pair or two to last me through the summer…
