Red pleated trousers were not something I thought I needed in my life, until I came across this pair whilst doing my weekly browse of the Topshop ‘new in’ section. A few clicks and 32 pounds later and here we are. They are comfier than most of my pyjamas and are cropped at an ‘awkward length’ (according to Topshop) to show just the right amount of ankle (they come in petite and tall too). They’re a little tricky to style imo; I kept the rest of my outfit here black with some white accents – I think that they’d also look great with a dark indigo denim or an oversized white blouse and some slider sandals when the weather is nicer. I’m definitely considering purchasing the trousers in black, polka dot and even this metallic pale gold, wbu?
