Slim trousers for spring


When you want a change from jeans and leggings just aren’t smart enough, this season’s slim cigarette trousers are a great option. With a 50s feel and flattering cut, I think they’d work equally well for the office or casual wear.

I’ve been having a look for a pair and here are the ones that made the shortlist – and some ideas to team them with too.

Clockwise from top left:

Bloom cigarette trousers, Topshop, £42
Dogtooth trousers, Topshop, £42
Flower print, Oasis, £35
Plum coloured, Asos, £30
Black flat shoes, Jigsaw, £79
Leather pumps, Gap, £33
Black top, Topshop, £15
Chloe Marcie bag, £520 (I know, but it’s gorgeous!) at

What’s on your shopping list this spring?

    Oh I am so glad trousers seem to be back in! I mean I live in leggings but sometimes you just want something different!! I have been on the look out for some trousers but everywhere was leggings or jeans!! Will be popping into Topshop now, I think I have a voucher somewhere!

    I love those floral ones. Wonder if I’m slim enough for them. I might pop into topshop and try some on! #sundaystars

    I’ve always been worried that these trousers would make my legs look like tree trunks. But I might have to re-assess. I love those plum ones from ASOS. I love a pop of colour and they would look fab with that top and those black shoes. I’m also now drooling over that bag. LUST! Thanks for linking up to #SundaysStars. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    I love the dogtooth ones, they all look fantastic. Sadly my body shape would never work with them, might try them on just in case 🙂 I think they look so lovely though, they would definitely suit you Julia! xx
