Please don't wear them with clumpy shoes

I saw a girl last week with some on and horrible clumpy shoes, looked ridic

Moi? Clumpy shoes? The very idea.

what are 7/8 trousers?

mrsmaidamess Thu 09-Jul-09 17:51:41

like this but more tailored

I have some black ones from Gap but I never quite know what top/shoes to wear with them.

have you got long legs?

myredcardigan Thu 09-Jul-09 19:58:03

I don't think they're at all flattering unless you're a size 10. Nothing that tapers in at the ankle is.

i am not a size 10 but have slim long legs

they look good

mrsmaidamess Thu 09-Jul-09 20:09:55

I am a tall 14 with long legs. And high heels.

mrsmaidamess Thu 09-Jul-09 20:11:03

janeite, I am prob wearing a white t shirt with striped boyfriend type shirt open, And wedges.

janeite Thu 09-Jul-09 20:12:43

I am short but my legs are long compared to the rest of me. And mine are narrow all the way down, so don't really taper in.

I think I need something that sort of glides over my bottom and some heels with them.

One of those swing tee shirts that are around? Mine are quite voluminous at the top so things look better tucked in

janeite Thu 09-Jul-09 20:22:59

Mmmm - more fitted needed I think as have norks and they tend to 'swing from the norks' which isn't necessarily a look I'd want to go for!

I'm looking for some of those but am miles from a matalan
