Wears My Money

I mean, really…

baggy trousers

big up the Baggy Trousers

I’m not saying that skinnies are dead, I think even when I’m well old I will be squeezing my saggy arse in to a pair of black skinny jeans, but this past week I bought a new pair of ‘Mensy’ trousers from Top Shop and I couldn’t love them more. I have no idea what ‘Mensy’ even means (if you do please let me know, even a google search didn’t give me the answer) Basically they are a slightly tapered very loose fitting trouser with a cropped roll-up hem. Surprisingly flattering, I thought they would end up being a bit too MC Hammer, but the crotch is well pleated and doesn’t bag out too much. These baggy trousers are now my new favourite so I got to thinking how to style them.

First up with a classic black polo neck, you know how much I like those, with some touches of tartan. I love these Joshua Sanders bow trainers. I *may* have just self-gifted them, but they are half price on Avenue 32, so I don’t feel bad. Tempted to get that matching scarf from Topshop, but will contain myself until after the Christmas weekend!

Next up a little bit of colour-blocking with greys. I love this Topshop coat, if I didn’t already have 2 very similar I would totally have bought this, it’s nice, long, and roomy, so it’s great for layering if it ever gets really cold…checked coat, old skool vans, joshua sanders back pack

Now, taking inspiration from a Victoria Beckham look up there. A high heel pump with a cream sweater and a smart blazer to pull it together. Those of us without a permanent driver can’t really leave the house in just a jumper…

Finally, a favourite combination of mine, Khaki and denim. It’s quite spring-like, but pop a Uniqlo Heat Tech vest on underneath and throw a warm jacket on and you’ll be just fine. I love this Mango shirt, I’m a sucker for anything embroidered…
