We have been banging on about coloured trousers for a while now and I have been loving wearing my bright pink Acne ones and ancient red Zara pair (sometimes it does pay to hang onto things for a while). Amanda is about to buy some and we have been discussing where to get them. We both agreed we didn't want to spend lots of money, as they are a fashion trend and we may not want to wear them next season.
But after spotting this fabulous older woman in Marylebone Station last week (Marylebone is a great place for spotting older stylish 'ladies') we have changed our minds. I have no idea where she got her trousers from as I didn't have time to stop her and chat, but they were very bright and looked new and I suspect she had absolutely no idea she was bang on trend (or 'on point' as the teens say) and cared not a jot about seasonal fashion. She had simply thought 'what a lovely bright colour', I am going to team them with my cream Pringle sweater and favourite Jaegar blazer.
Perhaps thats the secret of wearing fashion trends as one gets older, only buy them if they sit with the rest of your wardronbe, then maybe you don't have to discard them after a couple of seasons. We suspect 'Lady Witherington Smythe of Marylebone' will be wearing these for a very long time.
If you fancy giving coloured bottoms a go, the best ones are to be found at Zara.
They also have some lovely silk printed tunics, which they call dresses, but we would wear them over trousers.
