Faded favourites

Surely no woman can go wrong with the combo of well-fitted trousers and a button-down blouse. Some might exchange tapered for wide leg, or flats for heels but, essentially, it's a fail-safe look. The only foreseeable danger is "blah-ness", but this can always be fended off with a statement necklace, collar details and/or funky footwear (think cut-out brogues or pointed pumps).

For my version of this uniform outfit I tend to turn to one of my all-time favourite pairs of trousers, my love for them evidenced by the significantly faded shade of green that they've become. I've never found another pair that hang quite as nicely, though, so, until I do, these washed-out pants will continue to hold pride of place on my trouser shelf! Perhaps I'll get them copied but, then again, probably not; there's a kind of joy found in consciously over-wearing an irreplaceable item, isn't there?
