Linen trousers are always a summer holiday essential, loaded into our suitcases year after year. 

But whether or not you're venturing abroad this summer, you can still rely on a pair of lightweight trousers to see you through. 

M&S' Linen Drawstring Wide Leg Trousers are our latest must have.

Why we rate it 

The Linen Drawstring Wide Leg Trousers are a welcome alternative to jeans come the summer months. 

This design is made from a linen and viscose blend, which is lightweight and airy for those balmy summer days. 

They are a wide leg design, are high waisted and unlined, plus they have a stretchy waist band, as well as a drawstring for the perfect fit. 

The trousers come in short, regular and long, in UK dress sizes 6 to 24, although some sizes are selling out fast. 

They are also available in three colours, white, black and navy blue. 

The best part? The versatile design is available for an affordable £22.50, which we think is an absolute bargain. 

What the reviews say 

M&S' Linen Drawstring Wide Leg Trousers have garnered almost 200 reviews from shoppers, with an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Here's what shoppers have to say: 

  • "Nice flattering loose fit, comfortable waist and good length."

  • "I wanted light trousers for summer wear and these fit the bill. I’m normally a 16 but the 14 were a better fit."

  • "Always love M&S linen trousers, especially the wide leg. Perfect for summer. Just wish there were more colours available."

  • "These are fine as lightweight, casual, pull-on trousers which is what I wanted."

  • "I wanted a pair of loose-ish lightweight trousers in navy, to go with most things. These fitted the bill and could look smart or casually stylish. I am pleased with these, because I find these sort of trousers can be too tight/baggy/thin."
