Finding the perfect pair of trousers is not an undertaking to be sniffed at. 

More often than not, they look fabulous on the website model, only to look like a neatly stitched bin bag on us.

The key is getting a pair that pull in at the right places, hang loose where they need to and are easy to pair with either a relaxed T-shirt and a smarter fitted blouse. 

Marks & Spencer, with its Pure Linen Belted Wide Leg Trousers, has hit the nail on the head. 

Why we rate them:

Getting baggy trousers to look flattering is no easy feat, yet due to the high-waisted style of this wide-leg pair, M&S has managed to achieve a perfect silhouette.

The belt can be used to add an extra synched-in waist or can be left off for an extra comfy, relaxed look.

Last but not least, the super-soft linen is both breathable for those warm summer says and easy to iron. 

The linen trousers come in five summer-ready hues: navy, black, grey, white and beige. (Marks & Spencer)

The trousers are available in five colours: navy, black, white, beige and grey, so you're sure to find a pair to suit your sartorial summer vibes. 

And all for under £30, how can you go wrong?

What the reviews say:

  • "I bought these for work and they are a lovely fit, great colour and good quality. I really like that they have a high waist and that the belt is removable if I am wearing with a loose blouse over the top."

  • "I bought these for our holiday and very pleased with the quality."

  • "These trousers are great - lovely drapey linen and great styling - very Katharine Hepburn in the navy. Great to have them in a petite length too."

  • "Fitted perfectly and looks very chic on me. The belt and the high waist of the trousers offers an added elegance worn with a blouse or T-shirt tucked into it."

  • "I love linen trousers for summer and this design is perfect to create a stylish outfit. You can dress down with a T-shirt and sandals/trainers, or dress up with a silk cami and heeled sandals. I'm 5'6 nearly 5'7 and always find the long length much better. For these trousers specifically I found my usual size 8 was tight on the hips and good on the waist, as a result the fabric puffed out over my stomach in a very unflattering way. Much better to size up and use the belt to tighten, plus it means you can enjoy your dinner in comfort!"
