21 of the best trousers and culottes for temperamental summer days

Women tend to fall into one of two camps when it comes to getting their legs out. There are those who can’t wait to consign their black tights and boyfriend jeans to the back of the wardrobe, donning cotton frocks in April, and those who can't face exposing their winter limbs to the public or just don’t feel themselves in a floaty skirt or a skimpy dress.

On top of that, this summer the British weather has changed its mind as frequently as Boris Johnson. Will it be sunny? Will it be windy? Will it rain? Probably all three, and quite possibly all in one day. It all makes bare legs feel like a bit of a gamble.

So it’s a good thing all round that summer trousers have never been cooler. From culottes to palazzo pants and printed joggers, we’ve got 21 of the best right here for all budgets.
