Yep, coloured denim is hanging around like Silvio Berlusconi at an 18-year-old's birthday party - but don't be alarmed, this is good news. I grew fondly attached to my hot pants over summer and am not ready to chuck them just yet. Oh no. They're going to help ease me gently into autumn.
This season I'll mostly be wearing them with a mannish jacket or a lightweight v-neck jumper, and eventually my old overcoat. The yellow pair from Boden could be the dollop of mustard I've been looking for to perk up my nearly neutral wardrobe. And I like the idea of the red Jaeger trews with the flat ankle boots - though I was alarmed to see the Sunday Times call these 'Flankles' yesterday. A fashion hybrid too far, don't you think?
