Much of this ensemble was inspired by trends: denim shirts, striped blazers, moto styling, punky jewelry, ethnic accents, western footwear. The trousers, though, are a classic: dark, wide-leg denim. Stacey and Clinton seem to put almost every What Not To Wear participant in a pair. Those two are all about the classics, so I know I can’t go wrong with these trews.
My only complaint with the trousers is that the rise is a little low. I have to watch the hem length of the shirt I pair them with. Otherwise, they’ve served me well since I bought them over four years ago (November, 2007).
Until putting together this recap, I never would have guessed that I’d worn these trousers seventeen times. I seem to wear them in spurts. I’ll forget about them for a few months and then I’ll want to wear them every Friday. I’m thankful this classic is in my closet when I remember to reach for it.
