Trousers: Queen Clothing
Loving these new sailor-style wide-leg pants from Queen Clothing. Like everything that store has on offer, the quality’s outstanding, and the style is the perfect combination of innovative, different and classic. It comes with a helluva price tag, but the clothes last and last and last, so that’s all right then. (Plus, it’s nice to support local designers)
It took me a few goes to figure out how to do these trousers up (there’s buttons, then zips, then this flap thing, and some more buttons…) but they’re very flattering in a totally retro sort of way, skimming the hips, flattening the belly and creating a waist (huzzah!).
I’m not usually a big wide-leg fan (no need to create extra volume down there, right?) but these work nicely, and I look forward to summer when I can wear them with some fitted t-shirts, or a neatly tailored blouse.
