style-less lurk

i did see that gap is meant to be getting some cords in (think it was in grazia) but not for a couple of weeks.

am also eager for some slim/straight leg cords . . .

Bumping too as I would also like some! Cargo pants make me look fat, but I am fed up of living in jeans.

traceybath Sun 31-Aug-08 10:51:49

fingers crossed they're in the shops soon

traceybath Sun 31-Aug-08 10:53:51

i like lizzies too...

there was a style thread yesterday on which someone linked to a shop site which also had 'goks world' or summink on it... had lots of advice on shapes for body shapes...

Lizzylou Sun 31-Aug-08 11:02:38

OK, I think those ones were a bit "grannyish" looking at em again (am v bleary eyed this morning)

What about:

Sailor front


Too slouchy?

Lizzylou Sun 31-Aug-08 11:03:46

BloodySmartarse Sun 31-Aug-08 11:07:00

ah, here it is
might that help to get you started?
i couldnt decide if i was booty babe or hot hips pear shape...

BloodySmartarse Sun 31-Aug-08 11:14:39

ooh i like the boy fit ones...
i think thats the cut i like tbh; boy fit.

might go and trawl trough the boys section at tkmaxx or soemthing (if i can retain the will to live for more than 2 minutes in there that is)

bikerunski Sun 31-Aug-08 11:40:26

Boden, Joules, Gap, White Stuff, Fat Face...

I also have a large colelction of cords from Sainsbury's! Dirt cheap and I really like the cut.

MrsBadger Sun 31-Aug-08 12:30:12

cords, khakis or stretch cotton type - whatever the Gap outlet has in my size...
