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?

It's only on hippies

I have a friend in it. Frankly it looks like she just got out the Priory. I reckon she thinks she looks all Kate Moss in them.

cafecito Mon 13-May-13 00:42:28

yes, they have an air of nonchalant supermodel about them ... when did they appear? they're everywhere here! It's unnerving

<recalls time at the priory 10+ years back...did wear pyjamas as much as possible> blush

in this weather, they must drive everywhere!

bishboschone Mon 13-May-13 11:24:28

Because they are very on trend.. I have some and they are really comfy . Bit like wearing Pyjamas :-)

101handbags Mon 13-May-13 11:51:44

Don't do it! Pippa in silk pyjamas... unless you can style it better than this... which I am sure you can :-)

well hell, it makes a comfy change from skinnies ladies!

bishboschone Mon 13-May-13 11:58:57

I thought poppa looked fab .. We don't all want to look the same do we ?

AnyFucker Germany Mon 13-May-13 12:00:33

They look ok from the front, but the arse wobble from the rear is shocking

Even Pippa's peachy behind looks a tad large in those pics

EeyoreIsh Mon 13-May-13 12:01:32

I love This look. Especially with the ones that are skimming rather than baggy, that have blue in them and end above the ankle. I've spent hours studying other commuters' fashion choices

but I've no idea where to buy them from on the high street.

Callisto Mon 13-May-13 12:43:44

Ugh, those Pippa troos are barftastic. The print is hideous. I've seen a couple of people wearing them and thought they looked a bit strange. Had no idea they are 'on trend'. I love silk clothes, but I doubt a pair of these will make it into my wardrobe.

bishboschone Mon 13-May-13 12:55:44

All the high streets have them .

101handbags Mon 13-May-13 15:41:32

I thought that Pippa looked as if she'd just come from work at an office and had replaced a pencil skirt with the trousers and kept the rest of the outfit which didn't seem to 'go' with trousers.

ifancyashandy Mon 13-May-13 15:47:15

I too love them. I've these

MikeLitoris Argentina Mon 13-May-13 15:53:51

I love these.

Topshop and river island have some in a heavier fabric. Very flattering on.

Ive got a lovely pair in a dark gold colour that I can wait to wear.

Snowgirl1 Mon 13-May-13 16:00:31

Printed trews are very on-trend I hear.

H&M do some

Zara also do some and some more and some stripey ones, I quite like these ones as a bit of a toe-in-water-approach and they've got these too and these they even call pjama style.

Oops, sorry - seem to have accidentally posted twice.

MacaYoniAndCheese Mon 13-May-13 16:04:37

I think they are a great summer alternative to shorts for those of us with Shetland Pony legs less than perfect pins. I'm in.

xTillyx Mon 13-May-13 16:07:01

love the print of Pippas trousers but not the cut. There was some nice monochrome ones in New Look last week

bishboschone Mon 13-May-13 16:55:37

Exactly Maca.. I am little and nothing is going to change that, they are flattering on me and I have a good albeit a little jlo bum so it's all good .

Kikithecat Mon 13-May-13 17:05:30

The Zara model looks hideous in them so I'm out.

AnyFucker Germany Mon 13-May-13 17:48:57

Those Zara rags are bloody awful

EeyoreIsh Mon 13-May-13 21:05:19

I do worry that they'll look silly on me. Whilst I'm long and leggy, I am broad of hip sad

I would definitely need a slightly heavier fabric.

AnyFucker Germany Mon 13-May-13 21:07:33

Imagine the buttock wobble in clingy fabric ? shock

MikeLitoris Argentina Mon 13-May-13 21:14:56

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

Celticlassie Mon 13-May-13 21:32:04

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

justasecond Mon 13-May-13 22:31:29

I love these, wish they were available in UK

I have these for work. Not as smart as your link just but so lovely on.

RonaldMcDonald Tue 14-May-13 01:57:28

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.

xlatia Tue 14-May-13 10:04:16

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.

AnyFucker Germany Tue 14-May-13 19:39:57

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

I looked a complete tit

rootypig Tue 14-May-13 19:44:26

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

DukeSilver Tue 14-May-13 19:49:25

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.

cafecito Tue 14-May-13 20:03:33

last year and the year before!? my goodness!

xlatia grin

cafecito Tue 14-May-13 20:04:37

I saw stripey dungaree shorts today too hmm
