To me, the trouser co-ord is the modern day power suit, the Karen Brady of the two piece world- and the ultimate nod to twenty first century power dressing- and isn’t it amazing how an outfit can effect your mood and (pardon the phrase) ‘bring the sass’? Working from home I rarely have the opportunity to embrace suit dressing (if I manage to make it out of my PJS, that’s a business day at home)- but putting something on you feel confident in (and a slick of red lipstick, naturally)- can sometimes make you feel like you can take on the world (or, ahem, the Northern Line).
I spotted this set in Zara a couple of weeks ago, and after much deliberation (and little persuasion from Mama P)- it was in one of their navy paper bags, and I was out of the door. Not only was I sold on it’s versatility (how cool will these trousers look with a white blouse and neckerchief?), the fact it makes me feel like Cathy McGowan in the ’60s- but the fact they ooze a kind of Veronica Corningstone anchorman kick-flare cool had me at hello, plus any added confidence is always a good thing, right? Now just to tackle my emails in this get up!
