INTERMEDIATE (or confident beginners!)
The Heron culottes are a high-waisted wide leg pair of trousers with a classic silhouette. Make them up in a floaty rayon challis or cool linen for summer, or go bold with a more structured fabric to make the most of the volume in the leg. The Heron culottes feature inverted box pleats in front, a deep side seam pocket and button closure on the waistband.
