If you have been rather confused about trousers recently, you are not alone. I have been wearing my Winser Classic Trousers happily for all occasions and the YLB Printed Silk Pyjamas for evenings. Now, the new smart cropped trousers are a real winner. They are the most comfortable trousers ever, snazzy and cool. So much smarter than a midi skirt and definitely easier to wear and more feminine than our jeans, and for showing off a new shoe: great – roll on a tanned ankle. Winser’s Cotton Twill Cropped Trousers, £89. With many colours to choose from, these fashion-forward trousers are an all-year-long must. Khaki, this summer’s fashion colour, will take us right into next autumn. Black: team with a white t-shirt and one of your black jackets to update your office uniform. White and Stone are perfect for holidays, ideal for that sightseeing day. Midnight navy: twin with all the Breton stripes. Choosing footwear to go with cropped trousers does need a little bit of planning. The flat Gucci loafer is the fashionista fave, or something similar, there are any amount to choose from at all prices but this is a new shoe not a court from the back of a cupboard. Of course, a flat sandal for summer works a treat; I like the Birkenstock, but a more elegant sandal could be your choice. Still not convinced this trouser style is for you? Try the Cotton Twill Side-zip Capri Trouser, £79 in 7 colours. Classic, shorter, narrow trousers, they are an instant update for your look. The point is to wear a shorter trouser to be in the fashion front row.
