I'm trying to make these wide legged Glen Plaid "false grey" trousers work for me. I love the trousers - the drape, the comfort, the pattern, the quality - but I always feel a bit overwhelmed by them. Not today.
I've decided in order to work with the volume, I absolutely MUST have some type of structure in the top half. So I started today's outfit with the trousers and paired them first with my drapey cross front silk-blend tee. I wanted to work with light colours with the trousers this time. Now I've got volume on the bottom and drape on the top - how to rein that in? Add a structured jacket. But I went with my light cream leather jacket to keep the top half of the outfit light and to add a bit of "edge" to the otherwise soft outfit. For footwear, I kept that light as well with my bone suede boots. Each time I have worn my black patent booties with these trousers, I have felt "foot heavy" if you know what I mean. I added one pop of colour with my cobalt/cream/black handbag.
So am I getting there in taming these wide legged trousers? Does this work? If not, what needs tweaking? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
P.S. I forgot to scrunch my sleeves for the pics but will when I get to work :)
