Guess what’s back? They were huge in the 1990s, and now cropped culottes are set to be one of the biggest women’s fashion trends of 2017.

Cropped trousers come in a wide range of shapes and styles, from figure-hugging cut-off skinny jeans to smart slacks.

But the latest must-have cropped trousers feature a wide, flowing cut – a shape that is especially flattering for women with bigger hips.

These wider variations are flying off the shelves in Europe, according to Germany’s fashion trade journal Textilwirtschaft.

They have also appeared in many lookbooks of popular fashion bloggers and highstreet brands.

Many designs feature embroidery around the hem, a cute way to attract attention to bare ankles. Wide-cropped denim trousers are also proving popular. – dpa/Simone A. Mayer
