As someone who has only worn skirts and dresses (aside from cargo pants) for the last 10 years or so, the fact that I am starting to like the look of trousers and may actually wear them soon, well, it’s rather a big deal.
How did this come about you might well ask? Well, my ‘fashion fairy godmother’ (yes, these types of fairies are real - I am just hopeful that everyone has one) was reviewing her wardrobe and making room for some new buys and as such, I became the more than lucky owner of some rather divine items.
Largerfeld, Chloe and David Tang, to name a few, have since made their my way into my wardrobe and while I love them all, it’s the David Tang trousers that have really caught my eye. These are silk and the cut is to die for. (When trying on a well cut pair of trousers or dress, you do realise that yes, while the high street can offer a quick knock off, if you want to have something you will keep for years on end, it is better to buy an investment piece and pay accordingly.)
As I haven’t worn trousers (that includes jeans) for at least a decade I’m a bit excited as to what to wear with them ….. And may even venture out and get some jeans (ahh!) and some other trousers. (What has become of me?)
While my Tang trousers can be dressed up or down, I think the following mood boards (thanks to ‘Keep it Chic‘) are a fabulous place to start.
How do you think I’m faring after so long out of the ‘trouser’ game?
