What do you think to the print on these ? I'm an inverted triangle-ey shape so have v slim legs and broad shoulders - I'm thinking these with a plain darker top may draawwww the eye away from my swimmers shoulders? Or are they simply minging?

I like them, sounds like you've got the right idea! The pattern is really subtle and nice.

Hmm I don't like them, sorry. There are some star print and polka dot printed jeans around that are a lot more subtle, if you want to go down the printed trousers route.

smile Crossed posts, Teacake. Our views on subtle clearly disagree!

Remus you have just reminded me of the isabel marant 'deacon' jeans!

Not subtle, but I love them..

50/50 so far! I'm not normally a print kind of person and prefer plain but these just caught my eye - I thought they were subtle!

I think they're lovely and subtle, perfect for you r shape.

I think they are lovely and would suit you with slim legs.

envy though, as I have rugby player type legs - therefore would look a bugger.

Saw them in store today......LOVED them!

I like them.

I think they look like pinstripes from a distance, and would therefore make your legs look longer and thinner while calling attention to anything above the waist that is wider unless it was disguised somehow.

peggotty Tue 09-Apr-13 18:53:09

Hmm you may have a point math.

OneLittleLady Tue 09-Apr-13 18:53:20

I like them and would definitely wear them even though I have a massive arse and legs grin

mrgarybarlow Tue 09-Apr-13 19:04:06

I sound like a very similar shape. I have just bought some black and cream ones from Peacocks. I wear with a black top and it works as you suggested. I think the attention is drawn to my bottom half away from MY swimmers shoulders!!

Oh are printed jeans back?

I wonder if I still have my yellow and black paisley dungarees somewhere? grin

Seriously though I actually like them, but I too have footballer legs.

I like them - would be great on slim pins I think.
