So it's pretty clear that culottes are big news right now. However, if you're not feeling their wide legged swish factor - but still want to flash a bit of ankle before winter makes that plight a little difficult - you might want to say hello to its more structured sister, the half calf, wide leg trouser. Sleek, tailored and high-waisted, this hot new hem length is officially chic. It's been spotted just about erry'where this week, on model beauties Maryna Linchuck and Anne V, both of whom chose to work a pair with a long sleeved white crop-top. Then, Victoria's Secret Angel (and GF of the newly blonde Adam Levine) Behati Prinsloo added some serious edge to her slouchy grey pair with a black crop, deep red lips and a pair of cherry Dr Martens. So what do you reckon? Ready to take things up a notch?
