In the end, I decided that the pleated palazzos didn’t make me look too much of a plonky head so I wore them for our night out – which was brilliant fun. Lots of dancing and too much wine. I included the second photo, despite my eyes being shut, as it shows how the palazzos look when walking. I had to put leggings underneath them as they are so sheer. The real trendy way to wear them is with big knickers underneath (see below) but being over 40 and having had had three children I am not convinced that it is a look that I should be embracing – maybe if I was Madonna it would be a different matter!
