Yellow trousers - stylish or abomination?

I can't decide. I'm seeing them through the lens of The Sartorialist. With a fitted grey or navy blouse or sweater and brogues. But am I mad?

yellow wide-leg trousers

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Sun 15-Jan-17 00:15:47

You're mad. Sorry but they are positively evil.

It is because it's M&S? grin

I have a subtle (?) pair of yellow cigarette trousers and I wear them with a white shirt or a pale grey top. Not navy in my view. Brogues, yes, or white plimsoles.

You should totally buy them OP.

So you can burn them and prevent anyone else from wearing them.

Philoslothy Sun 15-Jan-17 00:19:11

Are these yellow?

PurpleDaisies Sun 15-Jan-17 00:19:30

Oh they're awful. Sorry. The cheap looking metal ring on the belt is almost as bad as the colour.

IHeartKingThistle Sun 15-Jan-17 00:20:40

They're awesome. I might have to order them myself.

IHeartKingThistle Sun 15-Jan-17 00:21:03

That wasn't sarcastic!

FurryLittleTwerp Sun 15-Jan-17 00:21:12

Yellow does nothing for me, so I'd never buy them.

I like the shape though but the yellow colour is awful

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sun 15-Jan-17 00:22:55

I'm wearing my favourite green high-waisted wide-legged yins (these ones, bought a couple of years ago) but they're a bit too big so I'm looking for a replacement.

Vicky B has got some on in Daily Fail. Looks bloody ridiculous the length is trailing along the floor the hem must be back by time she takes em off.

Sorry I digress - no don't like em

Empress13 Sun 15-Jan-17 00:23:29

Black not back

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sun 15-Jan-17 00:28:13

I've never had anything yellow but I'm being adventurous with clothes since I lost weight. You can get away with a lot more at a size 10 than a 22 - that might not be true for everyone but I didn't have the confidence before.

Now I've had the brainwave of looking for my green trousers one size down on eBay.

The shape of the yellow creation is good isn't it, Furry. They come in navy too, I was just looking for something a little more interesting as the rest of my trousers are black, grey, navy and blue denim.

Stonewash Sun 15-Jan-17 00:29:05

They look too big and baggy on the M&S model, but I like the Sartorialist picture. So if they were really well fitted I'd say yes. They'd be an abomination on me though grin

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sun 15-Jan-17 00:36:32

High waisted wide leg trousers are stylish. You just need a heel and a fitted top.

CointreauVersial Sun 15-Jan-17 00:39:51

Does My Bum Look 40 is wearing them in this recent blog post - she looks quite good in them.

You have to be confident, though. They are very "hey, look at me".

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Sun 15-Jan-17 00:43:33

I don't believe for a second that Bum really buys/wears even two percent of the stuff she claims to like from M&S. Cynical, me?

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sun 15-Jan-17 00:45:44

Aha! Thank you for that, Cointreau. She had the same reservations as me. But she does look good. That might be the leetle push I needed to order them. I was looking at the green ones she tried on, too.

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sun 15-Jan-17 00:46:13

Remus! angry

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sun 15-Jan-17 00:46:47

You can be cynical about anything but my trousers.

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Sun 15-Jan-17 00:48:57

Grey wool is always the way to go for wide leg trousers, in my book. Look lovely.

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sun 15-Jan-17 00:50:59

Yes grey wool is good, that's an option too. But I want them swishy rather than stiff. I'm back-pedalling on the ochre/yellow ones now.

MommaGee Sun 15-Jan-17 01:01:57

They're the Ind of thing my confident, slim friend could easily wear and look fabulous whilst of look like an overstuffed lemon. Order and try them on, knowing you can always return them. You won't know til they're on you
