The must-have long-short trouser at the moment.

They're the perfect way to ease yourself into your summer wardrobe; not too short, not took long, pretty much the ideal pair of pants (or shorts, depending on which side of that argument you're on). They look great with heels for a night out but equally good with flats for a day-to-day look. PLUS you will save yourself both time and money when it comes to tanning - this is a big deal. Very big. We have put together some of our favourite pairs that are out at the moment plus some helpful suggestions on what to wear them with, for anyone who is new to the culotte game...
