May I introduce (drum roll please) my New Favourite Office Staple.
Ladies, you need a pair of these babies.
For too long, office trews have been either a) jeans or b) highly flammable scratchy polyester black flares from Next. We’ve all got those dodgy First Interview Trousers (FIT, what a misnomer) that are like nothing else in your wardrobe and resemble a school uniform reject.
Now there’s a new kid on the block. The cropped trouser – in cotton, linen, or a nice polite man-made fabric that doesn’t have a weird plastic shiny sheen – has arrived.
Firstly, it looks like something you might actually wear at the weekend – crucial if you’re going to look good in it. Secondly, it’s FLATTERING on just about anyone.
Simply roll up the bottoms so they’re just at the point your calf widens, and I promise you it looks both smart and feminine. Make sure they’re fitted and pair them with an inch or two of heel so you don’t look dumpy or daft. And don’t forget to shave your legs… or at least your ankles.
Now, hide those black plastic monstrosities at the back of your wardrobe* at once.
