easy and quite flattering esp if long legs

foxinsocks Thu 16-Jun-05 19:27:26

think they look great with long legs/small calves

I tried some on the other day and they made my legs look like tree trunks (legs are quite muscly and calves quite big)

anothermoredaringtaurean Thu 16-Jun-05 19:29:20

well it ried the gap ones on and alhto legs are thinner than ther eats of me and small they didnt lookk good

I quite like the ones that are a bit longer than long shorts (although I still think on instinct when I see someone wearing them that they are wearing trousers one size too small iyswim)

ps also a taurus!

sot he river island ones are more your hting
knee covering?

GwynethPaltrow Thu 16-Jun-05 19:38:08

no actually I think they are horrid

well I would look horrific and like mutton in them

even though I do all that yoga (ahem)

foxinsocks Thu 16-Jun-05 19:39:10


though don't like the top of the riverisland ones (a bit fussy me)

I like the GAP ones - they're just not for me. Think those with luvverly legs carry them off well.

ALoadOfCrispyCODBalls Thu 16-Jun-05 19:40:24

Think they look wierd.

But not as wierd as floaty skirts.dresses over trousers.

GwynethPaltrow Thu 16-Jun-05 19:41:30

I got talked into buying a dress to wear over jeans once. I felt like Mrs Overall but was too embarrassed to take it back

foxinsocks Thu 16-Jun-05 19:43:28

I see people wearing dresses over trousers and it looks like they couldn't decide what to wear so put their whole wardrobe on. I think it makes people look a bit like cleaners - like they are wearing some sort of overall over their normal clothes. V strange.

aloadoffishyballs Thu 16-Jun-05 20:25:35

mrs overall
yes think you have o be tall thin adn ethereal to get away wih it me I cnat imagine havig t o wash TWO pices of clothin

I LOVE the shalwar kameez type silhouette. Went out and bought a floaty one with silver sequins at the weekend, it looks great with jeans!
