With Spring fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about creating the perfect Spring wardrobe. But what does that look like – is it time to get rid of the chunky knits and embrace warmer weather? Or will we be shivering our way around the shops over the next few months. Luckily for you, we’ve collated a sample of some of our favourite trousers for Spring, in conjunction with the lovely people over at FemmeLuxe Finery. From office wear through to nights out and child friendly weekend outfits in between, we’re confident that these four styles will have you covered. Not only that but we’re pleased to share that you can find an even wider selection of sizing at FemmeLuxe Finery these days, making them suitable for an even wider range of body shapes and sizes, all at affordable prices. So what are you waiting for, step into Spring with our latest selection of looks…
The Casual Jeans
No Spring wardrobe is complete without a good pair of jeans – they pretty much form the basis of every mum’s wardrobe. We love these blue, dark wash, straight leg jeans thanks to their high waist and small side split in the leg making them flattering on almost every shape. The high waistband helps pull everything in to create a curvaceous silhouette whilst the leg split gives you a little twist on the ordinary. A dark wash is almost always going to be the most flattering colour wash for jeans out there, and the most versatile for a day to night look that’ll only improve as they wash over time. Perfect for pairing with a cropped jumper for casual chic or a silky camisole for more of an evening look.

The Work Trousers
When you’re working in an office, you can end up trapped in a cycle of black and navy but you needn’t any more. We love these teal belted tapered trousers which help you bring a touch of colour to the office this Spring. The tailored style means you’ll look smart and professional whilst remaining comfortable thanks to a removable wide belt that lets you switch up your style. Not only that but the cropping makes them perfect for transitional seasons as the weather starts to warm up. We like to pair this with a loosely tucked in blouse or a fitted ribbed top for a variety of workplace looks.

The Night Out Leggings
Every wardrobe needs these – a good pair of leather look leggings for those last minute nights out or drinks with the girls. What makes these an essential? The high waist is a godsend for covering a multitude of sins, helping to create a smooth silhouette and ensuring great coverage when you’re shaking your booty on the dancefloor. The leather look means you’re getting all the style points of leather trousers without the extortionate price tag whilst the fact that they’re leggings rather than trousers mean they’re more comfortable, more flattering and should give you a wonderful skin tight fit, unlike thicker trousers. Comfort and style points all in one?! We’re not ruling these out for day wearing with a chunky knit and boots but in our minds these should always be paired with sequin or silks… you choose!

The Day Out Cargo Trousers
Picture the scene – you want a pair of trousers that’ll have you ready for hitting the shops, racing around softplay and then grabbing some lunch with the family. You want comfort and the ability to move easily but you don’t want to compromise on the overall look. Ladies, this is where you need a pair of cargo trousers (anyone else always want to call them cargo pants?!). These black, slim fit trousers flatter most shapes with them slim shape and cropping on the leg, whilst remaining functional and comfortable. With multiple pockets and an elasticated ankle cuff you’re ready for any eventuality, including taking on the death slides at soft play. Pair with a casual tee for a laid back day look or jazz them up with something a little more fitted and glittery for a smarter daytime look.
