They fit me really well but not sure if they're a bit mumsy - ?
What would you wear them with? I had thought maybe a button-down shirt and brogues would be good but anything even a tiny bit smart makes me look like I'm going to a luncheon at the golf club. So I guess it will be a trainers and t-shirt outfit, and I probably don't need another of those.
Oh, Santawontbelong weirdly that is exactly what I'm wearing with them! A black t-shirt and flat pointy studded ankle boots. But it isn't doing it for me, not sure why. It looks a bit tidy and gothy/80s.
And that thing where you wear narrow footwear and tapered trousers and it makes you look like a parsnip - ?
I have a similar dilema in the SIL gave me some floral trousers she no longer wore. I like them (they are a mix of blues, purples and greens) but can't quite decide how to wear them. In the summer I wear them with a purple slogan t-shirt, navy saltwater sandals, and a denim jacket and that feels summer. But as we move into colder weather I'm not sure, mine don't look good with trainers or chelsea boots but I do like them with my purple docs. Suspect I need to try them with a navy slouchy cashmere jumper. A plan for the weekend!
CountFosco maybe that's it, they're more summery and would be fine with (as pictured) a t and sandals but trying to make them more wintery is the problem...
FiftyShadesOfDuckEggBlue thanks! I am desperate for a decent pair of trousers, so the fact that these fit so well is making me want to find a way.
hungryradish I think that's going to be the way forward. I think trainers rather than penny loafers or brogues. Sadly I am already pretty good for sloppy clothes and was hoping these would be good for tidying myself up, but they just don't work that way.
I’d wear them in the summer but if I had to wear them in the winter then I’d wear black ankle boots with a fitted black top and leather biker jacket . Or pointy black heels for evening . Not sure they are that great though to be honest . IMO anyway .
