So mine finally arrived after a 6 week wait. They are fab quality,really flattering. I got them in navy as they looked great on the model. Now I'm not sure what to wear them with.....also, they are quite thick, but being ankle skimming more of a summer piece. Would you wear them in winter too?

I just got a pair too. Will watch with interest for ideas. I was thinking of wearing them with the short sleeve Breton tomorrow if it's sunny. Need to get some appropriate shoes though. It'll just be flip flops tomorrow.

I got them too - they're fab on!

I've been wearing the navy ones for work. I've worn them with a blue leopard crew neck knit (Boden - off ebay) and nude leather heels. I also wear them with grey tops and a big statement necklace. I will wear them in winter with a blazer and heels and pop socks.

I have these and am a fan. They are quite heavy material but seem nice and cool to wear. Doubt I'd wear them in winter rather than autumn.
I wear them with loafers, skate shoes, sandals.

Are these trousers suitable for pears ladies? Boden's bistro crops aren't really

How are they on the calf? Would they be ok over big calves?

They go over my big calves and don't look too bad. They'd be better slightly looser but I was amazed how good they did look as have very chunky legs.

Only slight reservation I have is that they are a bit baggy on the thighs for me. I would also prefer them a little tighter in the lower legs but they're not too baggy. (My legs are slimmer than my body!),

I love mine as they flatter my less than svelte thighs much more than the Bistro crops.

I've worn mine with the silver Boden Ravello top, silver mesh heels and a clutch for an evening do, with grey ash boots and a charcoal top for work and with a white and navy stripped Breton and loafers for casual.

Oooh I do like the look of these. Have never bought anything from Boden before, what is their sizing like?

Romcom Fri 06-Jun-14 18:55:43

I'd say they are true to size.

I've got them in navy. I love the fabric, but they are a bit short (I'm tall) so I wear them with pumps & a blazer.

Those are true to size verging on generous IMO.
