Top: Dorothy Perkins – Remixed
Cardigan: Ice Knitwear
More pegleg pants – this time from Asos.
These Crepe Pleat Front Peg Trousers are much more user-friendly than the City Chic pair I’m wearing in the previous post. They don’t crush as soon as you look at them, and have a smart cuffed hem that make them much for suitable for dressier occasions.
They were quite, QUITE big though, and I had to relocate the button on the waist to make them fit. As a result the pants are slightly more roomy in the hips than is ideal.
Honestly – as you can probably tell from my face – I’m not utterly sold on the outfit, but it was comfortable at least.
Asos actually does these pants in a dusky pink, and I’m very seriously thinking of buying them (in a size smaller, obviously) for the warmer summer months.
For what its worth, I really like the outfit and I really like the trousers! I can’t work out if these ones:
are curve’s version? If so I may have to purchase a pair. I LOVE peg leg trousers. I have a grey pair and a electric blue pair (which I’m still working up the courage to wear!). I have also seen a black pair I want.
I’ve not been too keen on my outfit today, so I understand how you feel.
I love the match of the thin stripes with the anchor cardigan, and I think they’d look super nice with a white skirt on the bottom – perhaps a pencil or sheath skirt to really emphasise that hourglass effect.
I can’t tell if the pants are black or navy /: They are a bit on the roomy side, aren’t they? what a shame – but comfy is good. hopefully you can pull them in by stitching on a dart line. Or put the button back to where it was and resell them. You should totally get the pink pair you mentioned.
dusky pink pants…..will need to agree to disagree on that one.
for starters, on me and other mere mortals, they will attract dirt.
I have been reading your blog for ages but have never commented before although you have given me loads of inspiration and led me to some great clothing finds! I am also planning my wedding at the moment (thanks for introducing me to Etsy where I have found so many lovely wedding things!) so I know just how you’re feeling.
I can see you’re not quite 100% sold on the outfit but just wanted to let you know I think it looks fab! I have always been much more of a skirts and dresses girl but I love these trousers and I think they work in a more ‘relaxed fit’. Dusky pink sound gorgeous too!
Hope you have a great Wednesday, Jo.
The pink pants sound great. If you can, get them!!
The cardigan you have on is also very cute. It’s quite Dangerfield-esque.
They are amazing however, I feel your pain. I will often wear wonderful pumps that have me wincing after an hour. Looking cute hurts. 😉 Your outfit is lovely as always!
I so should not have read this post – I now have a pair of those pants on their way. 😉
It is important to wear an outfit in which every one of us gets comfortable with. For me Dorothy, I could say that the outfit looks good on you. I like the shoes as well for it compliments to your outfit.
