Five pairs of trousers Mumsnetters can't live without

A good pair of trousers will take you places - or at the very least, keep your legs warm when it's nippy out. Mumsnetters share the wardrobe staples that have never let them down

Hush long harem trousers, £49.50

Hush's cotton-mix trousers are soft and swishy, with a wide waistband and an internal drawcord, perfect for days when you're travelling, or grappling with small children. They're comfortable and stylish: truly, a heady combination.

"Utterly fab! I have two pairs."

"I wore Hush harem pants after having my daughter. They're smart, stretchy and very, very comfortable."

Gap 1969 resolution slim straight jeans, £49.95

Made from relaxed, stretchy denim, these versatile jeans sit on the waist for a flattering fit (no spill-over) and are available in various washes, so there's a pair to suit every palette.

"A revelation - comfy, stretchy, not skin tight, but more slim fitting than their real straight jeans."

"So comfortable as well as very flattering. I have four pairs in different colours/denims."

Marks and Spencer 5-pocket jeggings, £22.50


These jeggings are an old Mumsnet favourite - with good reason. The low price, the variety of colours and the fact they come in a wide range of sizes and lengths mean there's a pair for everyone.

"They're fantastic. Bought my first pair years ago and have been recommending them on here ever since!"

"Brilliant jeans and a bargain, too. I have five different colours. High-waisted, so no muffin top. I love them."

Boden Chelsea turn-up trousers, from £36

Smart enough for the office but chic enough for a night out, these flattering tapered trousers are robust enough to be durable but soft enough to be comfortable. Winner.

"They're lovely: very flattering indeed, and good thick material."

"Most comfortable trousers I've had for a long time - they aren't too baggy or too tight either."

Next high waist-enhancer skinny jeans, £30

Whether you've got an hourglass figure or just want to create the illusion of one, Mumsnetters swear by these waist-enhancing skinny jeans. 

"Fab - I've just bought four pairs. I'm a size 10 but some skinny jeans make me feel like the back of a bus. These are great and comfortable."

"There is some 'give' in them, and the long length really is long, which is just what I was after."
