Chino...no no....

I didnt manage to go shopping on Sunday as we had an impromptu family BBQ, and who can say no to a BBQ when the weather is quite so glorious...

But I did manage to pop out yesterday lunchtime to Topshop and grab myself a bargain, this gorgeous pair of tapered trouserd, I love the style, the colour, the paper bag waist, the button details...and all for £20!

Now, I'm one of those shoppers who never tries anything on, I just see something, hold it up to me, buy it and try it on at home then take it back if needs be.  And that's exactly what I did, however when I got home and pulled these bad boys up i realised nothing about these trousers suited me.

I'm 5'3, can vary from size 10 - 14 pending on which shop/style of clothing I try, I have a rather large bust and a matching jelly belly with a rather flattering muffin top!  I also have a massive scar that runs from one hip to another from an operation I had when I was a kid.  That means I can only wear things that sit on the scar (right under my belly) or high waisted, I can't wear anything that cuts inbetween or that would mean rather lovely rolls appearing in all the wrong places and a garment cutting me in the widest part of my body.

Basically though I can wear lots of different styles of clothes, tapered/chino trousers are a big no no, which is a MASSIVE shame because I really want a pair of tapered trousers, though I will continue my secret hunt and let you know if anything changes :)

What styles are a big no no for you guys?

shame about the trews, at least you can return them though, some places are right bitches for not letting you.

for me, big no no is anything will a low neck or low waistline. so so classy in my eyes.

thanks for stopping by and following.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I think I might do a tut!

I love these trousers. For me, I think that most people can wear most clothes as long as they know how to style it and wear it with confidence. But I hate wearing quite androgonous clothing as I feel too manly and I have a fear of wearing black!! haha.

Those trousers are adorable. I'm always in the market for a classic pair of pants like that.

for me turtle neck is a big no no for me as I tend to feel uncomfortable most of the time.

I would love a pair of Tapered Trousers.
