Cropped wide legged trousers – fancy giving them a go?!

[Outfit: Jacket: Reiss, Trousers: Whistles, Scarf: New Look, Trainers: Adidas, Cropped jumper: Zara, Bag: Marc Jacobs]

Remember the wide legged Renee cropped trousers from Whistles that I told you about not so long ago? Well here they are in action. I know, it would have been nice to have got a better photo than this but I wore them to the Hush preview day and as I left the house at 5.25am and returned home and changed prior to the school run there wasn’t anyone to oblige (implying that someone obliges on other occasions which is kind of stretching it a little).  

I really liked wearing these trousers. The fabric is beautiful and it falls really well. Plus they’re a little different. I should add however that the waistband is high and pretty small and two pieces of Deliciously Ella’s flapjack and several of  her juices left me feeling somewhat errrrm uncomfortable. But it was so worth it.

I’ve also tried these trousers with ankle boots, ghillie lace ups and block heeled shoes and they work with all of them. So they will all be combos that I will be wearing, especially when the weather gets warmer. But maybe I should leave the flapjacks (which were the size of bricks) out of the equation.

    I am a fan of cropped wide legs/culottes. Just taken delivery of a pair of Karen Millen wide leg denim culottes which I ordered online in the sale and am so thrilled with them – great with flats or heels and a fitted knit top. Need some black ones like yours now!

    Hi Carol – ooh yes I know the ones that you mean. I used them at a style event in May last year and they were a great buy in the sale. The Hobbs ones that I bought for £33 might work for you as a black pair 🙂 Thank you for dropping by. Hope that all is well with you x

    Love this look!! That's spot on. Just bought a pair of navy culottes from the tailored section in Next. They're more of a wide crop to me, than a culotte but they're what I was after. £35 so reasonable too. Also picked up a pair of distressed cigarette jeans. Not distressed as in ripped (which for me equals bits of fat poking through!) but distressed enough to look 'cool', without trying too hard. Not been a fan of Next for a long time but today, two hidden gems amongst the rest of it which was as usual, mediocre. Have a great weekend x

    Slightly cropped harem pants paired with a tight top and high heels for balancing the volume will look great on women.Parkour Backpack
