John Lewis & Partners comes up trumps again and again when it comes to affordable wardrobe staples that'll last you years.
Whether it's a cashmere sweater, joggers or nicely cut jeans, the in-house designers really know what they're doing. They know we like good quality at a good price, and they serve it up, so it's unsurprising that pieces sell out so quickly.
Just what is going to be the next potential sellout sensation? We predict these cropped, linen trousers are about to disappear into shoppers' online baskets at seriously high speeds (especially with a mini heatwave on the way).
The linen trousers are a summer makeover of the already popular John Lewis & Partners Jersey Crop Wide Leg Trousers, which have already been a bestseller this spring.If you want a cropped trouser that won't need ironing (the main drawback with linen), you may want to check out the original design, which comes in navy and black.
Most shoppers, however, are loving the lightweight linen upgrade, one happy new owner even admitted to buying eight pairs in different colours. That's the kind of devotion these trousers inspire!
Why we rate them
These classic culottes, which come in all the classic hues navy, white and light khaki are available in sizes 8 to 18 and are made of pure linen so they're not only durable, but will keep you cool and dry. Perfect for anyone going through perimenopause and its associated sudden sweats (if you know, you know)!
Another big plus? The trews have front patch pockets (thanks John Lewis for knowing women always want pockets), and the waistband is elasticated at the back meaning the trousers have an easy, comfortable fit with a little stretch.
The cropped length means that they're the perfect summer piece that can be worn with strappy sandals, trainers - even high tops.
While they look on the casual side, who says you can't dress these up a little with a nice blazer and a Breton? Or a crisp, white off-the-shoulder top and high heels for dining out on holiday?
What the reviews say
With an average 4.5 star rating, shoppers are raving about the lovely fabric and the flattering fit, buying more than one pair and even asking for John Lewis to make them in more colours...
"I bought several colours of these and hope that John Lewis adds some more colours. Please could you add peridot green, pink, black etc?"
"I bought 8 of these in different colours! Good quality, good design."
"Love these! Bought in white (they are a little see-through but nothing beige underwear doesn't fix!) and loved them so much I managed to get in the green too. Would have also bought navy if available! Lovely and comfy and flattering - but still nicely fitted. I have one 14 and one 16 and there's not much difference! Great pair of trousers - buy while you can!"
"These are excellent, flat-fronted, good fit, if anything they are a generous fit. I bought 2 pairs and would have had three but they were only available in two colours when I bought them."
"I bought these in three colours for the summer and am delighted with them. The elasticated waist is very comfortable and the linen great quality. The white is a little see-through but a beige pair of knickers was enough to sort the issue."
