Are they dated?

I was about to order some but someone said on another thread that they were no longer 'trendy' so now I'm not sure. ... I really want to embrace new trends a bit quicker - usually takes me a couple of years and by then things are not so 'in' anymore...

And if they are dated, please recommend me some nice ankle slim fitting trousers or jeans for spring (not boden bistro - i'm curvy and they're a terrible fit on me)

Thank you!

I am not sure if they are or not but I put my purple ones on this weekend and had to change after a few mins. I can't explain why but I definitely felt dated?!

Was about to order these ones sad

So what should I get instead?

Well, I saw pastel jeans all over the Levi shop this weekend (DH jean shopping hell), as well as other places and Uniqlo still has them, so I don't think they are especially dated.

Go for it, I say.

I am not sure. Pastel colours are everywhere but I am not sure pastel jeans would be the most flattering regardless of whether they are in. Might try some to see though as I def can't wear pastels near my face.

If you like something, and it suits you, wear it. If you're concerned about being on trend, avoid Boden...

fashionable or not, I actually like those jeans OP. What shoes/boots will you wear with them though? I think that is important.

PavlovtheCat Mon 24-Mar-14 12:36:30

I personally don't really like purple anything. I wonder if it is purple that's no longer 'in' rather than coloured jeans necessarily? Maybe it's the colour that's in?

I don't even know why I am commenting though. I am the least fashionable person I know wink

Not claiming high fashion awareness either but not sure it's the purple. I have teal pair, cobalt pair and a green pair. All are about 4 years old and for some reason I started to dislike the look at the end of last summer. Maybe I've just got bored of them?

PavlovtheCat Mon 24-Mar-14 13:21:25

oh I like the sound of teal! But, I am so last year several years behind

PavlovtheCat Mon 24-Mar-14 13:22:29

I have a green pair. Well khaki I guess. they are my favourite pair. I wear them with knee high fly boots and love them to bits. I can't get them any more and suspect it's because they are very Out of Date now grin

I would wear them with either loafers or ballet pumps.

I actuallly think the grey, khakis, etc are a lot more classic and therefore not dated, it's the bright blues, pinks, etc that I'm not sure about.... but I'm a winter and this are the colours that suit me...

Lol about avoiding Boden to be on trend! I disagree (for some things!); they have lots of plain stuff with trendy cuts and good quality which can be part of a trendy wardrobe. I just avoid anything with a pattern and get stuff that no one could guess is from there.

Too many 'trendys' on that post....

If you like them, buy them! I have some bright red and some bright green trousers from Gap in a similar style that I bought last summer- I fully intend to get them out again grin

Mrsap Mon 24-Mar-14 13:57:14

I agree boden is fine if you choose carefully.

My green pair made me feel like dick Whittington when i tried them on with boots oncegrin

laregina Mon 24-Mar-14 14:01:44

I have almost exactly the same ones in the same colour tugga - I bought them a few weeks ago and I love them smile.

But then I don't really care if something is 'in' or not - just if it suits me - and these do (I'm a Winter too so pastels do nothing for me).

tugamommy Mon 24-Mar-14 14:14:40

I'm almost convinced grin. Might get them in white too as that's more classic

I wouldn't dare buy white trousers - it would take me about two seconds to mess them up...

PavlovtheCat Tue 25-Mar-14 23:43:36

white trousers? shock you have to like have no children anywhere near you, not be in london, or the countryside, or eat food, or drink coffee or anything else coloured (leaves mostly water and vodka), not use public transport or be in our car basically all you can do is sit at home and drink vodka then, but not so much that you pee yourself.

tugamommy Thu 27-Mar-14 17:32:41

Lol about the white trousers. I've got some, also form boden, the straight leg jeans, and it's not so bad! Admittedly have to be washed after each wear but without the children and public transport do tend to last the day.

I think it's the teenager bright jeggings/ skinnies that are dated. They look ok to me.
Trouser wise. I am coveting 70s type slim flares in darkblue. Even though I am short and dumpy.

Those cobalt blue Boden skinnies are lovely in real life. I saw them at a Boden party and had a good feel. They'd look nice with metallic gold sandals in summer.
