FridayStylefinder: Red Wide-Leg Trousers


Happy Friday everyone! apologies for this being a little late in the working day … I got a little held up earlier!

Anyhoo … Trousers, guys. Bright red ones.

Big, massive, wide-legged things of 90’s-esque beauty from Karen Millen.

Who loves them?

God I do! … they may well be a little ‘out there’ for everyone’s tastes, but for me, I think they are wicked!

I know, I know, I need to have them taken up, but what can I say, I’m a shorty. They have only just arrived in the post and I still wanted to show them to you.

(They should be super close to the floor, yes, but not ON the floor)

But that said, every picture I see of people wearing trousers like this right now (on Instagram and in glossy Magazines etc) , are of the massive trousers billowing along the ground … and honestly … what is with that? that’s so impractical!

I had a pair just like this in 1994 but sadly, I ripped them up on my bike chain 🙁

These ones however, are reserved solely for the kind of lunches and dinners where delivery of red trousered legs happens via the use of only a car – Absolutely no bike riding is allowed.

They are just so special. And funky!

Worn with a simple black vest top (Or white blouse) this is an easy outfit that still makes an extremely current fashion statement.

Now, lets talk specifically about the cut of a wide-legged trouser for a mo: Man repeller? possibly. They can be terribly unflattering, or they can be super slimming. And In my experience of wideys (which is extensive) they key is all about -not only the precise cut- but also the fabric. The fabric needs to be super weighty, weighty enough to hang and drop heavily … thus skimming beautifully past your bits and bobs – enhancing not clinging.

And let me tell you, a quick search through some super-duper posh and designery sites has revealed that these beauties are in fact replicated many times throughout this seasons runways, including identical designs from the likes of Victoria Beckham, Gucci, Michael Kors, Etoile Isabel Marant and Max Mara to name just a few of the biggies …

These trousers are where its at my friends – who’s in?
