I struggle a lot with trousers but I will be travelling much more for work so need practical , smart and easy.
I see wide legged trousers are quite the thing (channelling my mother) atm but I'm short and curvy. I have one pair that look ok but generally I look better in a slimmer silhouette - slim leg trousers, skimming top, maybe blazer or jacket.
After seeing uniqlo smart ankle length trousers praised on here I have finally ordered a bunch plus their new wide legs to see what works. I am now wondering if I've missed the boat fashion wise.
I guess if they suit me it doesn't really matter but I also don't want to look too out of touch.
I love the ankle skimming trend. I hope they don't become outdated because I have fully embraced and none of my trousers are long now. And I finally have a good variation of good enough shoes and socks that don't look ridiculous with them!! 😂
I think they still look current and my guess is that they've got a few more seasons in them yet. At some point they will date and possibly quite badly too, but I'm hoping that's a while off as my ankles are by far the best part of my leg so I love this trend!
Ohhhhhh cool, just what I wanted to hear. Although I will need to see what they look look like in before I get too excited as I just never know what any trouser will look like on my weeble shaped frame.
If the do work I was then thinking chunky loafer. I cannot ever get brogues to work but find loafers a bit easier.
I can't do links on my phone but they are the smart trousers when you search under ankle length on the uniqlo website for the Pp who asked. Lots of colours, some reduced.
I wear them with Dr Martin's Eliza shoes and dark men's socks. Or bright sea salt ones if I have a colourful top on. I wanted the Noah shoes from toast, but couldn't afford at the time. Both shoes are on sale now.
