A has found what she's been looking for – a pair of trousers that fits!
Let me tell you a story. I'll start at the beginning, which as we all know, is a very good place to start. I am a Skittle body shape, which means I have extremely generous hips, and though similar to an Hourglass shape, is a tad bottom heavy. I am also a bit of a short-ass. This all adds up to a pretty painful time when it comes to buying trousers.
These latest acquisition are a God-send. Being cropped, they pose no threat of swamping me or of requiring any arduous hemming. The cut – just above the hips, not quite waisted – and the darts mean the trousers fall nicely down around the hips, with no unsightly pulling, ending in a neat taper just above the ankle (presumably just below the knee on normal sized humans). Needless to say, these beauties have rarely left my ample hips since I bought them!
Oh, and did I mention they are from Topshop Boutique, and made in England? Wonderful.
I've worn these life-changers – is that over-stating the matter? – with pretty much everything, but here I paired them with a pretty little white shirt and a loosely tailored jacket for easy chic. Throw on my trusty Dr Marten Chelsea boots and the fashion accessory of the season, the scarf, and I'm dressed for anything!
