Inspired by the above image from a Filippa K 2018 campaign, I feel like wearing a pair of trousers. With a tucked in shirt or slim turtleneck, the look reads as pulled together and dressed while maintaining a relaxed, casual vibe. To my surprise, the few trousers I have left in my closet don’t project this mood. The silhouettes are more on the slim side and waistlines not quite this high. I’m challenging myself to find a pair online without ordering half a dozen or more. I’m growing tired of returns and exchanges and need to be more diligent before I hit the purchase button. If the inventory in local stores were better, I’d happily shop in person but unfortunately that hasn’t been the case.
Having not bought a tailored trouser in ages, I’ve got some homework to do. Suggestions welcome.
