Between the ages of 11 and 17 I wore nothing but jeans. Jeans are easy. They go with everything, they’re comfortable and when wearing them you’re in the fashion safe zone – you’re neither edgy nor tragic. Your denim-clad behind sits happily on the fence.
When I started uni I branched out into skirts, dresses and shorts, but I always went back to jeans in the end. My faithful friends never let me down. Even now, denim is a wardrobe staple and I build so many of my outfits around a pair of classic blues.
But recently, I’ve had a flirtation with something else. My love affair with tailored trousers feels like more than a fling. Whether fitted, hareem, flared or cropped, I think trousers and I will be firm friends for life. Although jeans will always be my little bit on the side…
Do you wear tailored trousers for everyday outfits, or are they languishing at the back of your wardrobe, waiting for job interviews, jury duty and meetings with your bank manager? Are you surgically attached to your jeans? I’d love to know!
