'Organic Alexa' Twill Cotton High waisted trousers in Midnight Black by Lucy & Yak
We've revamped our Lucy & Yak unique high waisted trouser design with a new fabric that is perfect for the colder months, but still fully breathable. We still wanted to keep the fabulous big hips shape and mom style fit, with our super comfy and versitile elasticated waist. I couldn't be happier with the finished design, I plan to live in them all winter!
We've used twill which is 100% organic cotton. Twill is a beautiful fabric thats getting close to denim in terms of strength, but its far softer and not quite as heavy, but keeps a nice structured shape. We always try to make clothes that can be worn in any season, which is difficult but I think we managed it again with 'Alexa'

'Alexa' Lightweight Organic Cotton Trousers in Midnight Black
I got the size L in black as I have an hourglass figure. the legs are a little bit too wide and the bottoms don't turn up and stay up so I might get them taken in a little. I like the waist, though.
as the material is organic I've found it quite scratchy and it's rubbed on the inside of my leg and bum, leaving quite sore chafing marks, which I hope will get better with more wears.
I really wanted to love these but I found they pick up so much dust/lint all the time which is hard to remove and the inner thigh part caused chafing on my thighs so I don't really wear them ever. I would not recommend buying these unfortunately, at least not in black.
I love these trousers! Soft and don’t press in on my stomach. High enough that I can comfortably wear a crop top and long enough to get away with not shaving my legs 😅 they get lint etc stuck to them easily but other than that they’re amazing
These are super comfy! I have only marked down one because of the fit at the rear (On my body anyway) they seem to have loads of excess material around the bum, and for my body it's not that flattering if worn with just a tshirt. Which is a shame as I would like to wear them in summer... however, this is just my perception of them on myself, we all have different shapes!
But that being said, I do really like them and they're flattering on the waist line for sure. I would defo size down, they're really stretchy and designed to be loose, I sized down and pleased I did :) the material is nice and they HAVE POCKETS!!
