I guess my minor foray into 80’s pegged pants got me in a trousers mood. I am generally a skirt and dress woman, with jeans on the side for weekends. But these new “palazzo” silhouettes look fresh/vintage to me at the same time. Is that possible?
I posted this look on Facebook a few days ago and several of you gave it a thumbs-up:
|The whole look, put together by Nordie‘s. Great purse.|
|And a close-up of the look-at-me trousers! Not sure I’m ready for this much fun.|
|This color and style would suit me better, I think. Out of stock, darn! at ASOS|
The Guardian has a slideshow today featuring “Wide Legged Trousers For All Ages”. Check it out here. My favorite is the first picture: love, love that ivory monochromatic look for Summer:
|So cool and elegant. I suppose my chocolate frozen yogurt will be forbidden.|
Maybe I’m drawn (back) to this look because the loose, flowy pants could almost be a skirt. If cut properly, they skim over hips and thighs. And they swoosh! I’d wear my (yet to be owned) wide leg trousers with simple tops, like the Nordie outfit above. Either a slouchy-but-not-bulky tunic, or a more fitted tee. A short blazer or cropped cardigan up top would make for a great (casual) office look.
Over to you: like or no like? For others but not you? Or would you take a spin?
