Trendy flattering trousers for heatwave (cropped or long)

Title says it all really

Used to wearing dresses and tights for work as very white legs!

Weekends and days off I wear jeans - cropped and long or cargo pants but too thick for this weather.

I look terrible in jersey joggers with cuffed bottoms and haven't got the toned figure to wear leggings out.

Any suggestions please?? I want to look trendy but slim and effortlessly casual in this heat!

Thanks in advance

I like Robell 7/8ths length trousers - different fits depending on your shape. I wear Rose, but there's ones called Bella too. They are comfy and wash well but not sure how trendy!

Linen wide leg high waist is what you need. There’s loads around but I just got some in the h and m sale that are lovely will try to link

I'm wearing these to work today. They're smart enough to dress up but can be dressed down and are lovely and cool.

I got mine from Seasalt , really comfortable, not sure if you’d call them trendy though grin.

I've just bought these from Asda, I normally look rubbish in this sort of thing (I've got a big waist and bit of a tummy) but they're quite flattering on me and lightweight fabric

I wore these (in navy) to work today, they were very comfortable. They're a slimmer fit than on the model and I wear them slightly rolled to make them 7/8 length:

Thanks everyone very much appreciated!

Bruised legs from cycling rule out a midi dress so trousers it is. Melting in this heat!!

How about wafting about in a pair of these! www.clarenceandalabama.co.uk/collections/trousers-culottes

I've been living in these. They look nicer than the do in the model (have never said that before) - look far better with flatter shoes. https://www.hobbs.com/product/marlena-cotton-blend-wide-leg-chinos-with-stretch/0120-8826-3647L00-NAVY-12.html

Thanks for sharing @EllaPaella. I was in M&S today and based on your recommendation I hunted these down and found them. Love them! Can’t wait to wear them now.

DD has some lovely high waist, wide leg trousers from Primark. One is a linen pale grey with white pin stripe and the other is off white with a navy pin stripe.

Relacco cropped trousers from Uni Qlo are super light and comfy. I live in a hot and humid climate and these are my go to.
