I bought a pair of these in Zara over the summer but nothing seems to look right....I noticed the fashion expert in the Guardian suggested heeled Mary Janes - not my thing though. I fear these trousers will never leave the hanger.
Black flats, loafers or brogues. Ankle boots with a nice dip to front to lengthen leg.
I cannot get on board with the maryjane concept, personally.
Love the idea of pairing the pants with patent brogues, and a gorgeous slouchy jumper with maybe a silk shirt collar peeping out from a crew neck (please bear with my fantasy here!). Or else a loose, nicely fitting shirt or blouse, a long sleeve breton tee, a nice deep mulberry coloured linen tee....
Also would work with casual blazers, silk vest style cami's beneath.
