Summer is still in full throttle but soon the bikinis and kaftans will be out of the stores and we will be stocking up on faux fur everything (even bags, trust me)…
So I thought it was a good time to talk about a wardrobe basic: a classis pair of black trousers. I think I’ve found them. They’re £125 so not cheap but they are the most comfortable pair of trousers I have ever put on, the pockets sit nice and flat on the hip and they graze the ankle so beautifully that they work great with both heels and flats.
Where from? Winser London. Stocked in Harvey Nichols and loved by the Fashion savvy (Caroline Issa is a fan), the entire collection is wearable, chic and based on the perfect capsule wardrobe: the perfect shirt, the easiest cashmere and the best-fitting trousers (I could go on). The pair I’ve got on are called the ‘woven trouser’ and would make perfect everyday capri pants or you can smarten them up for work with a crisp shirt.

And a more frugal alternative? I also love these Asos turn-up tailored trousers. They’re slouchy so I would perhaps go a size down if you’re in-between, but for £30, you can’t really go wrong.
