I’ve been slowly but surely falling in love with printed trousers this year. Now I’m fairly late to the printed trouser game – having only started to embrace tailored cigarette pants and capris at the end of last year it took me a while to progress on vibrant prints and bold patterns.
Last month, with a trip to San Francisco pending, I invested in a pair of vintage-inspired cigarette pants with a bold dogtooth pattern. I was nervous – having been scorned by dogtooth pants in the past, but it turns out I needn’t have been.
I’m wearing a size 18 but, to be fair, probably could have been sized down to a 16. The stretch in the fabric means I’m fairly certain the trousers would encase my thunder thighs and the waist (when worn without a belt) is characteristically huge on me!
Since buying, I’ve worn these trousers in true pin-up style with pin-curls and a bardot body, for work with a blazer and courts and as I’ve styled it here, casual with a camisole and vibrant cardigan!
They really are so versatile and I’m thinking of trying the whole crop top and heels combo with them next time I go for a girls cocktail night (they have been far too elusive since last years illness).
The trousers come in sizes 8 – 22 but only have 14-22 left in the tall (and 6, 10, 20, and 22 in regular) and are currently on offer for a measly £16.72 (and only £22 originally) so I recommend, if you’re after a pair of vintage inspired ginghams, snapping this up quick!!!!
