Here are the trousers I brought home from Vancouver. They can still be returned.

I think, like Aida, I may be swayed by a lovely fabric. I don't know if these are "the ones."

I haven't exactly "styled" these because I don't exactly know how *to* style them! I am wearing them with my Doc Marcies; are those the right kind of shoes? The belt is notional only; it happens to be the only one I have at the moment that is the correct width for the loops. So please excuse that; it's something I could easily remedy.

I did try them with a few jackets and a sweater to show how they look like that.

I also do not know about the length. Maybe they are not short enough.

Maybe they are not even *slouchy* enough! They do not fall off but sit on my hips. I can pull them up to my waist and they are still very baggy in the thighs then with no crotch drop. Crotch drop is quite minimal when they are on my hips but there is an inch and a half or so. And I think you can see they are truly baggy on the thighs/ seat.

I am of multiple minds about these.


It's a look I'd like to try.
Fabric and details are amazing - wonderful drape, and although you can't see it, the waistband and pocket trim has a lovely subtle grosgrain effect. So they feel quite "luxe."


How to style?
They awaken some figure flattery concerns.
Not inexpensive, so if I buy I want to make sure they will be worn. If I can't style them, how can I wear them?

It is too late for these pics, but I just remembered that I bought a cute menswear influenced sweater vest that could be tucked with these or worn out - shorter than the sweater I put on here. I think it would work well with a button down underneath.
