Are we “getting on board” with the sailor pant trend?
Sorry for the sea puns but far too tempting to resist.
Here’s what I think; they are wonderful and I love them if they suit. It’s all about finding the right ones for our shape.
They are difficult for me to wear because I am fuller in the hips and look better with a narrower leg. Extra detail around my middle is probably not ideal either. That’s where the importance of the shape comes in and the styling and placement detail of the buttons.
If I were deliciously tall, as Caroline de Maigret is in this photograph, I would wear them all day and night long.
She wore this wonderful combination during Paris Haute Couture this past January and she did the sailor pants proud. The tucked in turtleneck sweater is a great one with the sailor pant detail and the white coat is a marvellous contrast.
I feel like wearing them again and think these are just about right. xv
