We had another chat over our office coffee break this morning about women who never or seldom wear trousers. It all started on Friday when we noticed that we were all in our black trousers again as autumn approaches and will probably stay like that until late spring.
We came up with (with a little help from people on here who joined in the previous thread):-
Kirstie Allsop (never wears trousers) Dr Kate Williams (never wears trousers) Nigella Lawson (recently seen in trousers following her slim!) Dita von Tesse Caroline Flack Louise Minchin (Breakfast TV presenter) Myleene Klasse.
Can our friends on here add to the list before our sad conversation tomorrow
I have started to wear dresses a lot, but still wear trousers for practical reasons. If you never wear trousers, what do you wear when you work out, do things like hiking and horseback riding, sitting on floor with toddler, etc etc? Not to mention when it's bad stormy weather outside?
I used to wear trousers or jeans all the time. But now (I'm 37) I think that skirts and dresses look so much better on me. Much more forgiving, and I feel and look more feminine, even when I am wearing boots with them.
I'm always on the lookout for skirts in Autumn and I am really enjoying getting last Autumn's Boden skirts out (the fun skirt is a favourite of mine).
I wear jeans at the weekends because I'm lazy. I never wear trousers at work because I have short legs, a big arse and a tiny waist and dresses and skirts with boots look so much better. I make an exception in high summer for a particularly flattering pair of high-waisted, flared, black-linen trousers from Hobbs which seem to overcome the above-mentioned flaws.
When I hit 50 in a couple of years time I will substitute tweeds and brogues for jeans at the weekend.
