[unpaid/ad/affiliate] I usually hold off til Friday for any fashion posts but when you find exactly the right pair it won’t wait because they have a habit of disappearing fast. These are definitely for spring or summer but trousers are my default wear so a nice, slimline pair of crops to wear with wedges or Fitflops on hot days that aren’t heavyweight or leg strangling is an absolute find.

I’m showing them on me (wrong shoes, I know but I was in such a rush… ) because my shape and the model’s shape couldn’t be further apart and yet (I think) they still look great. For reference, I’m a size 12 and 5ft 3ins and size M is exactly right.

Personally, I’d wear this with a stripey t shirt and denim jacket, and with any colour shirt tucked in (I rarely tuck in!) or out – or just a plain white t-shirt and some fancy bracelets. Size wise, they go from XS to XL. I don’t have as much of a waist as I used to but if you tuck in, the joy of these is that they’re elasticated (although have the look and seams of a front fastener) so there’s a little bit of give that still allows you to look nipped in somewhat.

Not too shabby on the old bottom either thanks to the ruche detail that accentuates the waist. I checked for plus size (Violette) and there are black crops but not this exact pair which doesn’t mean they won’t come. Anyway, I won’t go on but I am very happy with these additions to my (vast) black trouser collection – it’s just going to take one warm spring day (and some moisturising, toe plucking and nail painting obviously!) and there will be no going back. At £29.99 – what a bargain! Find them HERE, non affiliate HERE. They’re also available in sky blue and cream but it would take a braver woman than me…
