I don't know how it happened or when it happened but suddenly everyone I know and see is wearing silk pyjama print trousers, they all look splendid. How and why? And why do I look like a Christmas decoration in similar?

these are on my shopping list this week. They are high waisted too. Very flattering on.

I quite like these ones, but don't know if I have the guts. Am v short.

cafecito Mon 13-May-13 22:16:02

you confirm my suspicions. they are everywhere
but why!?
high waisted would be even worse on me, I'd look like a hot air balloon grin

i have some and look an arse in them
mistakenly i got patterned one when i really needed black silk
wear with a leather top i got ages ago and NEVER wore as I felt a dick in it. Now I know I am and have no issue with the odd looks i get.

OP, this has made me laugh so much because the other day I went to Primark and actually ended up buying a pair of fake silky PJ bottoms to wear in public! grin
Disclaimer: I'm due to have DC2 in 5 weeks time and decided that slouchy trousers are the way forward, at least this summer. Under normal circumstances I don't think I'd want to be seen wearing them with the fabric clinging to my wobbly bum.

Just in the interests of research I tried a couple of pairs of these things on today

I looked a complete tit

they were on trend....last year and the year before (and the year before). now Pippa Middleton is in them! so it's over, don't worry grin

get yourself a pair of dungarees grin grin

When I see these on other people I think they look okay, casual and easy to wear.

When I try them on the flesh of my buttocks and thighs seems to come unattached from the frame of my body and give an epic amount of wobble. Bad Look.

last year and the year before!? my goodness!
