Costing just £25, they're a great value everyday staple that are sure to be a hard-working addition to your 2023 wardrobe.

Why we rate them

Firstly, the jersey fabric has plenty of stretch and elasticity, making them super comfortable and ideal for long days spent on the train, in the car, at your desk and everywhere in between.

The straight-leg, pintuck design ensure they still look smart, while the high-waisted design ensures a flattering fit that is supportive without feeling too constrictive.
