I want a really great pair of trousers - what shops/designers would you recommend
I am looking for a really great pair of trousers, something that sharpens my look and i can wear out for dinner/theatre or to work, and that i feel great in!
I have (thanks mn style jury) bought some 7 for all mankind jeans, and love them, and now want the same in a pair of trousers, great fitting, styled, and something when i put it on makes me feel better! I am 5.8, and a 10 or 12, depending on shop, and in muy 40's!
I have looked at reiss, but a bit toooo worklike for me, and i think i want something a bit more tapered .... i went to gap but found it a bit too predictable... i am happy to go designer for a great piece that will last in my wardrobe ...
any ideas - anyone wear hobbs? or a designer that they would recommend ....
How about Maxmara? I have two pairs of trousers from there and they are beautifully cut. Have worn them loads over the last few years and have no doubt they will still be in my wardrobe 10 years from now. If you are anywhere near Bicester Village, there is an outlet store there which is well worth a visit.
I love Zara for trousers personally. I've never found better trousers elsewhere tbh. I think it's partly because I'm on the tall side and most trousers are way too short. Having said that, I got some Theory trousers in T K Maxx a couple of weeks ago for £40 and they're really nice, albeit a bit on the short side.
thanks to all those that helped! I went to a large department store, went to every single designer and picked up their trousers in my size. Found a FABULOUS pair, that is exactly what i wanted, really stylish, and great great fit ... they turned out to be dolce & gabanna ... and it was a random choice as had about 100 pairs to try on!!!!! will try find a link for them as they are just soooooooo coool!
Bonsoir Anna, one of my favourite dresses ever was a Sofie D'hoore I bought from Fenwicks in Bond ST but depsite searching on the net I have never been able to find either a website or a list of stockists. Does she have a shop in Paris?
