Every Wardrobe needs that staple trouser. A style you don’t want to sleep on this season is the paperbag waist. Paperbag trousers are high waisted with additional material at the waist which can usually be cinched in. I am quite tall at 5ft 10 and have an inverted triangle body shape, yet they work really well on my frame. They are such a versatile piece and can flatter a range of body shapes.
I picked up this cute pair of the trousers from Zara and remixed them three ways:
Work Mode: I teamed my trousers with a chic polo neck ( I particularly love the pearl details on this one from Zara and its tall girl friendly!), a classic trench coat and a cute pair of flats.
Weekend Vibes: I then went ahead and dressed them right down with a cute graphic tee, a denim jacket and some trainers.
Graphic Tee: Topshop
Girl about town: Finally I set them alight with a crop top and clutch. To bring right up to date, grab this seasons“mini bag”
Crop top: River Island (old)
Shoes: Office (old)
Clutch bag with chain: New Look (old)
