Somebody help me - I've given into wide-leg trousers. Have I become a mum? Am I now okay with the fact that wide leg trousers make me appear short, stout, and rather too relaxed for my subtly scatty personality? I have no idea; all I do know is that I'm completely over skinnies.
Not only do wide leg trousers give me more flexibility (because, obviously, I like to casually cartwheel into work and do the splits at random and often inappropriate intervals), but they're also far more breathable - and they do a little swish when I walk.
My current favourite is this pair (4) from River Island, a high waisted, khaki number with a soft, fluid fabric. I would wear these out to dinner with some wedges, or at work with some pointed flats, perhaps with a lacy black crop top or a collared shirt. Either way, wide leg trousers are comfortable, practical and chic, and I can't believe I haven't been wearing them all my life.
