I have a lovely pair of Next harem trousers, baggy but not really too baggy, (although I wish the waist band was wider) and so far the ONLY thing that looks good is a vest top tucked in, with a short M&S cardy with wide ribbed hem, all buttons done up. It defines my waist which is somewhat necessary what with the borderline too-bagginess of the trousers . Been looking for something similar to the fitted cardy, but with no luck, and I don't know what to search for on Google.

ouch my brain....

Peggy I think you may need a lie down in a darkened room. grin

BTW I googled your harem trousers. Very nice. And can see the difficulty.

How about your recommendation for a body with one of these in black?

Are they really flattering?

PeggyGuggenheim Sat 02-Feb-13 21:26:44

The trews are really flattering yes. Cute with flat mary-jane type shoes and incredibly flattering with high heels. The fabric is thin enough that there's not massive baginess around the thighs. I never would have tried them if I hadn't seen a friend wearing similar - they're a breakthrough for me, hence the bafflement at what to wear with them

Looking at Hennes now ...

I may order some to see.. Which heels do you wear with them?

PeggyGuggenheim Sat 02-Feb-13 22:01:33

The heels are from Asda actually! Solid, extremely comfy tan "leather" sandal stylee. They were a tenner I think, and then they were in the sale for ages. A very good buy indeed because they are really quite high, but so comfy.
