Hrmmm at first I was a bit unsure about these stripe trousers, it was the mix of smart trousers with a sporty look I wasn’t convinced about! However after hours of searching ASOS (a regular occurrence where I spend most of my money!) for black trousers with a stripe I eventually ordered one pair just to try them out. They were definitely that one item I thought would be getting sent straight back! Online trouser shopping + short people just don’t mix, however I risked it anyways! When they arrived I was pretty shocked that they fitted and they looked good!
I’m such a trouser person over skirts or dresses, especially in the colder months. The thing I love most about these trousers is you can mix them between casual and smart wear and AT LAST I’m out of jeans!
Dressing Them Up
The perfect way to wear these for drinks or dinner is to pair them with a pair of heels and a shirt. I was worried this look would look a bit too “workwear” but it does work well for an evening out!

Dressing Them Down
So you just want a change from jeans? These trousers are so comfortable and perfect to wear with a pair of converse and a jumper. I’ve teamed them with a good old slogan jumper, and this one is my New Look Funday one which is a complete knock-off of the 1970 Bella Freud jumper. Then a pair of Converse of course! I’ve got to be honest I felt a bit lost not wearing jeans for the first time but I could get used to these trousers as they’re a lot comfier.
