It’s a mission that’s so simple, but sometimes seems so impossible: buying a great pair of tailored trousers on the high street.
However, if your efforts haven’t proved fruitful so far, all is not lost, as the lovely Rochelle Humes has done the hard work for us and found the most perfect high-waisted smart trousers we’ve seen in ages.
First spotted on the pop star and presenter back in June, Karen Millen’s tailored high waist trousers flew off the shelves as her followers raced to pick up a pair.
‘Need these trousers! Perfect to hide my mum tum,’ exclaimed one fan, followed by another who posted: ‘Those trousers are to die for!! ?’
Unsurprisingly, the line quickly went out of stock – but now they’re back, and we’re clicking ‘add to basket’ now before supplies run out once again.

Crafted from Italian fabric, the black straight leg trousers feature a contrast waistband and concealed side pocket, and are ideal for dressing up to take you from day to night.
We’ll be styling ours either with a cool printed tee and stilettos like Rochelle, or by tucking in a smart blouse or shirt for a look that’ll work in the office and after work fun with friends.
Ready to shop? They’re currently on the Karen Millen website in sizes 6-16. At £125, they’re not the cheapest trousers in the shops, but they are an investment piece you’ll return to throughout autumn, winter and beyond.
Plus, a little birdie tells us there’s currently a summer sale going on, with clothing prices starting from just £18 – so perhaps you can pick up a bargain to wear them with…
