How to wear gold trousers
Ever since I met the lovely Orsola de Castro at London Fashion Week, I've been hankering after a pair of metallic trousers. Truly the epitome of Casual Glamour. The perfect boardroom-to-bar companion. Not that I ever spend much time in a boardroom, but you get the picture. Maximum impact, minimum effort, as they say in glossy magazine-land. And an easier option than this season's optical print pants. So. As Mr That's Not My Age prepares for work and I grapple with the blog, I'm reminded once more that I'm living with a style icon. 'Oh I used to have some gold trousers,' he pipes up from behind the ironing board, 'They were from BOY.' Really? 'Yeah. I used to wear them with a tuxedo jacket and a big scarf.' Job done, I think. No burning the porridge this week. So, today's 'How to wear it' tip comes courtesy of the Blog Widower, who remains a step ahead of the fashion pack when it comes to fancy pants.
These lovely Precious Trousers are from Hobbs - and they'd look good with a black polo neck and brogues too. How would you wear gold metallic trews?
