I purchased these lovely flannel pinstripe Theory ankle trousers during the Black Friday mayhem, and then had them hemmed to MY ankles. I love a good classic trouser in the winter, but not having worn any for some time since my style has evolved, I'm racking my brain trying to style them to make them current. I know they're not in keeping with my look, but sometimes I need to look a little more business-like for work. So, none of my long, fluid drapey tops will work, and I don't love tucked or semi tucked sweaters with them (see pic), so am wondering if cropped sweaters or peplum tops would be better? ...but I don't have any of either. The other thing is shoes, but maybe that's another post. I would normally work it out on my own, but I have a big job interview in early January that I'm thinking they'd be good for and I suspect I"ll have to shop prior to. Any and all ideas will be considered and thanks in advance. [pics are prior to hemming, shown with a fine gauge navy sweater from J. Crew]
