I have one top already but it's not very summery, what do people wear with them?

I've just taken delivery of the Next floral ones from Thefairycaravan's link. They are lovely and comfy and actually quite flattering (fitted round the bum unlike other harem styles) but I'm not sure I can get over how much they look like pyjamas! Anyone else find this? Does it depend on what top you wear? (Have tried on a few tops with them but nope, still pjs).

I got this top. It's actually nicer in real life, more coral and the double layer is very flattering

M&S, they come in half sizes

Tell of pumps

It was too short sad
I did however get a lovely waist belt from m&s for a fiver and the holy grail - nude, flat, supportive, cushioned ballet pumps

Should you decide it suits you, please heed the warning about not tumble drying (sadly eyes lovely new vest which is now oddly shrunken and only suitable for the rag bag).

This thread is the reason I'm sat in traffic outside the retail park grin
I love the slub vest from next but want to try it on

Laughably I wear bodies ( lace ) underneath slash neck style sweatshirts
I am too old for this look

I've just found a few oasis vest tops in my summer clothes box that I've just pulled out of storage that go quite nicely. Yay!

I've got the Next ones in black (which I had to size down) and the splodgey print (which I didn't). I love them...they are so comfy and easy to wear. I wear mine with vest tops or slouchy t shirts and converse during the day or silk jersey top and heels at night. Love them.

erm, an off the shoulder sparkly bra and shoes with curled up toes? <tiptoes out of S+B where I clearly don't belong>

I love those block heels, sadly the metallic version isn't leather and my feet would weep - literally!

Boltonlass1972 Sun 04-May-14 08:49:50

Looking at Fairy's link..ARE BLOCK HEELS COMING BACK?!

frankietwospots Sat 03-May-14 21:54:21

Have ordered both tops - thanks Fairy!

Gremlingirl Sat 03-May-14 20:49:09

Ha ha Fairy - we have a long flight coming up and that's exactly what I am planning to wear on the plane. MN approved flight outfit!

TheFairyCaravan Sat 03-May-14 19:38:58

I wear mine with quite fitted tops because other wise I just look wrong.
I have got the navy woven t-shirt, that I wear with the floral and smudge print ones.

A woman on holiday wore this vest with the smudge print ones on the plane.

Busymum I wear ballet flats, sandals or flip flops with mine.

Ty for that gremlin!

nikki1978 Sat 03-May-14 19:36:44

Yes to ballerinas

I think heels or boots would look awful

Gremlingirl Sat 03-May-14 19:35:02

I am very short (just five feet tall) and I bought the Next petite ones in black then ordered the normal ones to try on in the splodgy pattern. They fit fine, rather bizarrely, because they kind of ruche up and look lovely so don't be put off by lack of petite sizes! I really love them.

Busymumto3dc Sat 03-May-14 19:31:55

Aside from heels or sandals what shoes do people wear with them? Ballerinas?

nikki1978 Sat 03-May-14 19:31:28

I have the next ones. They are lovely and comfy and don't have the elasticated cuff on the bottom so look less like exercise wear and are more flattering.

nikki1978 Sat 03-May-14 19:30:09

I wear them with a black vest and denim jacket (fitted one). Oh and flat sandals. Maybe a bright scarf.

Secretsquirrel13 Sat 03-May-14 19:26:12

Eve from the allwornout blog wears them with silk camis from topshop and I always like that look.

Maisie0 Sat 03-May-14 19:08:37

Are you a Winter ? If so, then maybe something like a white top, or a patterned top but mostly with white, and tiny tiny amount of black to give the monochrome look. It'll be nice if it is in some kind of summery materials like a floaty fabric.

itiswhatitiswhatitis Sat 03-May-14 19:08:02

On the upside though busy I wore the black ones with a pair of heels for a night out so you can atleast dress them up!
