Has anyone got a pair. Do they look good or just look decent on the models online?

I've got a flat pair in black and a flat pair in grey both suede I wear all the time in winter.

Then a beautiful pair in soft tan leather with a block heel I am too conscious to wear as I think the same thing!

There was a couple of people at my work wearing them. I personally think they look awful and can't get by the tartyness of them tbh. It may be because she hadn't styled them well.

I have a completely white bedroom. White walls, blinds, furniture, bed, bedding. I love it. It's so nice going to bed! Even my flooring is white.

Sorry wrong thread!!

thegoodnameshadgone Fri 30-Sep-16 20:20:39

I'd never wear them to work though!

I've just tried a few pairs on but I'm going to send them back. They don't go with the rest of my clothes. I'm too scruffy, basically grin
And some of them were a bit panto, too. And I felt like they probably wouldn't stay up that well, eventually.

I've tried but I just look like a prostitute in them sad

Might be another tall thing though?

I've tried but I just look like a prostitute in them

Thats exactly what they remind me of. I cannot get by it.

I've got a flat black suede pair and a flat navy suede pair from last year - Next and Clarks. Love them - they hide my fat lower legs and saggy knees and make my thighs look ok. Need help to get them off tho blush

ageingrunner Fri 30-Sep-16 21:16:59

What do you wear them with Oy?

OyWithThePoodles Fri 30-Sep-16 21:32:36

ageingrunner Usually wear with skinny jeans, a fitted top and a long cardi. Sometimes with casual midi skirts/dresses. Sometimes with leggings and long top/short dress/tunic.

I have finally managed to find a pair that don't keep falling down and I love them. I do not believe they make me look like a prostitute - but if they make me look like a principal boy then I can live with that as I actually like the look grin

id love a new pair for winter but have fat calves. well fat legs all over tbh. if anyone could recommend any id be greatful.

i wore mone with skinny jeans and nice jumpera or leggings and long tops and occasionally with tights and shirt dresses. i do feel fairly dressy in them though.

I have the flat caddy belle ones from Clarks in a suede aubergine colour and I love them. Flattering on the leg and very comfy. I wear mine with skinny jeans, swing dresses and leggings with slouchy jumpers or a checked shirt.

ageingrunner Fri 30-Sep-16 21:43:20

Thanks Oy I might have another play around with them before I send them back smile

OyWithThePoodles Fri 30-Sep-16 21:48:04

Yes genius - my navy ones are Clarks Caddy Belle - they are brilliant aren't they. I didn't know they did aubergine ... off for a look ....

thegoodnameshadgone Fri 30-Sep-16 21:48:29

I think flat ones are easy to work with

geniusindisguise Fri 30-Sep-16 21:55:22

They do them in a lovely pale grey as well Oy I think I would ruin them in that colour though.

I am short-ish (5'4) and have these gorgeous ones by Frye. I got them at a discount shoe warehouse though smile

I've been wearing them for 4 years. I dont find them pant at all. I wear flat black leather or suede ones with dresses and thick black tights or brown/beige ones with skinnies and a tunic or long top for casual.

Its a perfectly acceptable look, not that unusual where I am and has been popular for a few years.

I'm late thirties, tall, hour glass size 12 btw.

TOGS11 Fri 30-Sep-16 21:59:51

pant = panto

I have flat black leather ones that are a bit bikery with a pewter zip down the side which are easy to style. I think the suede heeled ones are a bit much! I wear with tights or skinny jeans.

I have some that are definitely panto so now font get worn outside of the house. I wish i was tall and thin enough to pull them off though
