In fairness to these somewhat creased Jigsaw (£89) trousers, I did demand quite a lot of them today. I went to see my Mum and her sister so they sat for a couple of hours in the car (the trousers that is, not my Mum and her sister) and I do seem to recall having done a little lounging in my Mum’s conservatory. Tuesday is also the mother of all school runs! On the plus side, the creases do drop out relatively quickly. These trousers do come up quite large and also quite long, so that’s something to bear in mind but they are really nice to wear for a change from skinnies – which clearly these are not!
Previously I have worn these trousers with a cream jumper but today I wore a marl coral vest top which I bought from the GAP last week for £4, although I can’t now see it on the site.
M&S has a fine selection of wide trousers, a pair of which my Mum produced today (she’s a trendy young thing). I will give you a style warning though – the shots on the site are pretty dire but don’t let that put you off. The prices are good, they come in different leg lengths and so for a first foray into a wide leg trouser, M&S is as good a place as any to start.
There are a couple of styles which have a navy background with spots or flowers on them, some batik ones and some plain ones. One of my favourite pairs is the M&S floral wide leg trouser (£28)
For those interested in taking a further look, I’ve also included a link to all of the M&S wide leg trousers. This style is great for hiding a multitude of sins and with a block heel or wedge, they are great for adding height in a way which still feels quite elegant without feeling as though you are teetering – if you know what I mean!
