Wide Leg For Life

It's no secret that I'm a wide legged trouser fan. I say fan, I should probably clarify that I was not a 'fan' at first. I found they made my look frumpy, short and added on half a stone. Totes selling them to you aren't I? Well, this all changed when, (like I discovered with culottes; my other addiction) that when you add heels, of any height, they transform you in to an elegant, sophisticated looking human being. I say any heel height, as I'm not really a heels fan. I find the older I get, the less time I have to put up with uncomfortable shoes. I now realise that even a kitten heel (especially with a pointed toe) can add that much needed few CMs to your height, therefore giving you the illusion of long, lean legs. This discovery changed my life. I can now wear pain free heels, with a variety of trousers, making dressing so much easier!

My current faves are some absolute 'must haves' from Asos. They were £22 and although I actually bought them 2 years ago, they are still available online and stand the test of time. I've styled them two ways for this blog post. I wanted to show you a sort of day to night look, with just the change of a top and some accessories. The best thing about them has to be the flattering silhouette they create. No matter how crappy you are feeling about yourself, you can't help but love how they make you feel. They skim over your thighs and bum and hang beautifully to the floor. The added height of a heel, gives you the 'legs for days' look which enables you to pair them with any style of top.  

For the day time look, I stuck with quite a usual outfit for me. Wide legs, white tee and my faux leather jacket. I obvs had to add a neck scarf, as since having my hair chopped off, I've been obsessed with them! I actually have worn this exact outfit with trainers, which despite my whole opening paragraph about needing heel, looked ok! 

I changed it up a bit for my evening look, and added an off the shoulder number from Zara which I picked up in the sale a few months back. Off the shoulder was massive last year and by the looks of it, the trend is going nowhere fast, so I'd definitely recommend investing in one (they are everywhere!) 

So there you have it. My new fave trousers. My biggest tip is TRY THEM ON. It took me a while to find the perfect fit, but when you do find them, you'll fall in love!

Look One: Trousers: Asos // Jacket: Boohoo // Bag: Catwalk Killa
Neck Scarf: Topshop

Look Two: Trousers (as before) // Top: Zara (similar here) // Neck Scarf: Asos
