So it's pretty clear that culottes are big news right now. But if you're not feeling the wide-legged swish factor, but still want to flash a bit of ankle, 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 now officially certified as chic. It's been spotted just about errywhere this week, on model beauties Maryna Linchuck (pictured centre) and Anne V (right), both of whom chose to work a pair with a long-sleeve white crop top and a T-bar sandal. And Victoria's Secret angel (and GF of the newly blonde Adam Levine) Behati Prinsloo (left) 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?
