Wide legs and bell sleeves

Wide leg trousers and peasant topOh, what I would give to be standing on a terrace overlooking Lake Como with my hair, sleeves and trousers billowing in the evening breeze! I wore this outfit on the last night of our family holiday where we were ending the week at the local place to be, Ristorante La Brea. We’d been there earlier in the week, and as our villa was about a 20 minute walk up a steep incline we’d accepted the restaurant owner’s kind offer of a lift home. Turns out the lift was in a jeep that had only half a back door, sideways benches in the back, and no seatbelts. Ah, Italia. Safe to say on the last night we politely declined his offer and walked home instead…

This combination of wide leg trousers and bell sleeves is saying yes to 70s flare, and no to skintight. It’ll be interesting to see how the trousers in particular can be transitioned into an autumn/winter wardrobe piece – a challenge I gladly accept. If they can’t be then maybe I’ll just save this combo for the next time I want to go to a fancy dress party as Stevie Nicks.
