As they dont work for me
Does anyone else find this when jeans might be a little too sweltering?

What about linen trousers? Or some wide-leg palazzo pants?

BatCrapCrazy Sat 18-Jul-15 14:38:22

A nice jumpsuit? I wore one out last night and had tons of compliments x

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 14:42:08

i fear i look like a sailor in wide leg trews
Jumpsuit - unlikely as i have a short ' waist ' - waisted dresses never work for that reason

RonaldMcDonald Sat 18-Jul-15 14:45:58

I'm still wearing peg and 3/4 trousers or shorts - although I know that is mutton territory
I bought still wear a fair bit of whistles type looks on nights out

This is all miles out of fashion but I like it and it suits me
I am a fan of massive short dresses but I get that you abhor

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 14:52:48

i would like them if they suited and werent
* vile tea dresses
* vile skater dresses

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 14:53:44

i am a bit like Remus though and i wear 3/4 trousers etc for work so it seems just a bit Venn

RonaldMcDonald Sat 18-Jul-15 14:54:23

Agreed both are vile. Must come in at bottom otherwise lampshade

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 14:54:47

Nice looks there but guffaw at the American golfer shorts

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 14:55:13

xactly - need a Straight skirt then a top that isnt all TITTY

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 14:57:26

in a moment of desparation recently I bought this quality item
I might try it with a fitting tee and jackay au denim and sandals

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 14:57:42

desperation even

RonaldMcDonald Sat 18-Jul-15 15:01:57

I wear crappy dresses like this a fair bit which most on here hate
I quite like that skirt

RonaldMcDonald Sat 18-Jul-15 15:08:54

I have this which I wear summer and winter

I am no help, soz

No to linen trousers. They make me look like a very scruffy mushroom.

Depends where the night out is.

Casual pub - shorts or a tube mini with a top of some sort and Converse or ballet shoes. Or rolled up thin skinnies (the black cotton ones) and trainers and a cotton shirt.

Bar/meal / dancing - Thin cotton jeans, rolled up to three quarter length with a silk top and heels? Or pencil skirt and heels, with a t-shirt and denim jacket.

I don't like being very dressed up though. It doesn't suit me, and I don't go anywhere that needs it.

Skinny jeans turned up to 7/8. Big wedges and dressy tank. Normally cool enough in evenings to get away with jeans.

BabyGanoush Sat 18-Jul-15 16:03:48

Yes, the Dorothy Perkins Harper rolled up skinny, with a nice loose fitting (silk) tank. Nice shoes.

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 16:54:31

Love all saints one

RonaldMcDonald Sat 18-Jul-15 16:54:43

I think we are all a tribe wearing the same basic thing

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sat 18-Jul-15 16:59:24

So tonight have two options
Just tried and the skirt looks nice, almost dress like with a tight fitting cap Sleeve black T-shirt and denim jacket and ankle cuff heeled sandals. (Zara last year)

Or a white plain cut fine lace T-shirt with black Skinnys and same shoes

Yes - both of those sound v good.
