What's wrong with them?

What the shit shock

My 50yo sister would think them very smart, yet functional, and buy them for an evening wedding, thinking she could wear them again on may occasions.

I have a photo of me wearing black ones with a large purple and pink floral print on.

It was 1989 and they were very flattering. Frankly, I'd wear them now as I don't think the m&S ones are bad hmm

When Downtown Abbey returns they will be wearing them if it stretches into the 20's as I also have a photo of my gran wearing a sort of peach/nude silk coloured pair. They were also lovely and you could easily wear them now.

I think they'd look nice with a jumper with a fecking rabbit or deer on.

M&S buyers need to be lined up and sacked.

Yama Wed 24-Aug-11 19:07:31

It's just not possible that they would look good on anyone.

GloriaVanderbilt Wed 24-Aug-11 19:14:23

Only at M&S

GloriaVanderbilt Wed 24-Aug-11 19:16:27

better than this tho

BigBangersTheory Wed 24-Aug-11 19:17:15

hee hee! Did you watch the video? At least now I know how you are supposed to walk in enormous, ankle-skimming trousers.

rookiemater Wed 24-Aug-11 19:19:56

OMG I had a pair of trousers just like that last time they were fashionable and they were foul even then. GV that skirt is beyond comment.

notahappycamper Wed 24-Aug-11 19:29:12

that is truly horrendous - no wonder M&S are offering 25% of Per Una all week! 100% off wouldnt temp me!

GloriaVanderbilt Wed 24-Aug-11 19:31:36

Nice isn't it

I mean what the actual jeff. NO one would wear that. Not even my old physics teacher.

pointydog Wed 24-Aug-11 19:41:51

Now that's what I call a palazzo

catswipe Wed 24-Aug-11 20:40:27

I stacked it in a pair of black rather wide legs. Those are an accident waiting to happen....

Nagoo Wed 24-Aug-11 20:43:40

4 and a half stars. smile

BigBangersTheory Wed 24-Aug-11 20:45:01

Oh yes, I had some (much less) wide leg maternity trousers and I kept catching my foot in them and almost hitting the deck. It was terrifying!

Grumpla Wed 24-Aug-11 21:58:03

They are...

<words fail>

QueeferSutherland Wed 24-Aug-11 22:53:51
