Ok so I'm not exactly selling these by implying you look like a Dalek when wearing them. And you absolutely will not. They are the most stylish trousers on the block at the moment (in my opinion that is...) but I think they need to be long. Which is wear the Dalek reference comes in... as in when you walk you look like you've got no feet. Which isn't exactly right as that would be just barmy and wrong diddly so this reference isn't entirely correct, but I've written it now and it's more succinct than "trousers that need to be really long so you only just see a smidge of shoe but not too long that you do actually look like a Dalek".... Hence the Almost Dalek effect.
All clear as mud?
I'm looking at long, wide, slouchy trousers. Which are the most perfect trousers to wear with all our sneakers and skater shoes. Or loafers. Take any fabulously comfortable flat. Only swerve any rain. That's where the wheels fall off with this style. Soggy hems. Big fat fashion fail.
However let's look at Autumn with a degree of positivity and whilst it's been pouring with rain today, it's definitely set to warm up and dry up for the rest of the week. And I'm ambitiously going to say "rest of the month"....
It was this pic from hush that first got my creative juices going - not to mention that I already have a grey pair which get so many positive comments when I wear them.
What am I planning on wearing them with? Well, first off, I adore this longer jumper with them. It's not something I would have thought of doing, but I simply love this look. The option I normally opt for is a close fitting top and either a blazer or a biker jacket. But I'm willing to give anything a go.
Winnie Trousers from hush £60
And what others have I found?
Flowy Trousers from Mango £49.99 in black
Pocket Suit Trousers from Mango £49.99 in heather grey
Another super wearable pair at Me+Em.
Wide Leg Lounge Pants from Me+Em £58
And in the navy.
However these are a gorgeous gorgeous look.
Black pleated wide leg trousers from River Island £30
Palazzo trousers from Mango £49.99
The green mix - I assume this is probably a teal shade of blue and that's why it's a green mix?
Wide Single Side Stripe Trousers £25 in three different lengths.
And the gold mix again £25
Similar but with different shades of stripe, again at M&S and again for the bargain price of £25.
Wide Side Striped Trousers £25 in the black.
Or in the navy (with a black and white stripe - LOVE LOVE LOVE).
And off piste... knitted. I know, I know - not the most flattering potentially but with the tie waist? ADORE.
ASOS Lounge Knitted Wide Leg Trousers £28
Ending with the slightly more random. I still need to tackle all things velvet, but in the meantime...
ASOS Velvet Slouch Trousers £35 in mauve. Which I appreciate isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea but it does go superbly well with black and navy.
So wide trousers - yay or nay? Dare I say I am ever so slightly looking forward to the cooler (not but wetter) days so I can wear mine?
Finishing with outfits from the last couple of days. Saturday and leaving hols....

Sunday and it was cold. I was also criminally hungover and spent four hours in the morning at rugby (polishing my halo I was), then straight to the hospital for a (routine) appointment for the 11yr old (bone density scan - all the excitement, not) and then a much needed cake break in M&S, followed by a quick TK Maxx jaunt (I came home with sequins... all the details on Instagram).
