While we might have moved on from WFH in our pyjamas lockdown-style, when we are remote working, comfort remains key. Soft waistbands and comfortable-cut trousers are still an absolute must-have.
Which is why we applaud Marks & Spencer for, once again, providing us with the perfect addition to our WFH wardrobe.
They're versatile too – dress them up with a smart jacket and Breton top for work or a weekend brunch; dress them down with a hoodie or sweatshirt for a walk; or team them with your favourite pastel spring knit for lounging.
So great in fact, they're flying off the shelves, leaving many sizes already out of stock. Don't lose out on this wardrobe staple by adding them to your basket ASAP.
Why we rate it
The flattering straight silhouette cuts off loosely just above the ankle for a cooler feel, while the tie waist gives you the freedom to choose how snug-fitting (or not) you want to style the waist. (We're fans of any clothing item that allows us to loosen the waist to accommodate a food baby.)
Made using sustainable cotton with added stretch, they are great to lounge around in, work out in or work in.
And, if all that wasn’t enough, they’re long-lasting too as they use M&S’s StayNEW technology to prevent fading and bobbling (the curse of many a stretchy trouser).
The trousers are available in sizes 6 to 24 and in seven (count 'em!) hues: charcoal, navy, black, bitter chocolate, dark burgundy, indigo and pine green.
M&S is also offering these Cotton Straight Leg Joggers in a range of leg lengths from extra short, short/petite, regular, long to extra long in most colours.
What the reviews say
Don’t just take our word for it though, over 4,000 shoppers have flocked to the site to share five-star reviews. In fact, one shopper says "you're missing out if you don't get these".
"Have 4 pairs as I wear them for work...they are comfortable and wash very well. The straight leg width is ideal, not clingy like a legging and not too flared and loose. Good value for money. I will repeat buy these annually."
"So comfortable. Been buying these for years as great for lounging around the house in. Brilliant price and wash well so what’s not to like. Recommended."
"I have been looking for smart casual trousers for a long time. These fit the bill, they are good quality, smart and comfortable."
"Great basic and very comfortable. I use them to wear around the house as “house” trousers. Have found no faults. Just pull on and go."
"These are my go to winter staples and I have several pairs in blue or black. Fit well and are a great price."
