Stovepipe trousers in check are one of my recent, too-good-to-pass purchases from J.Crew. I have liked them when I first tried them on, but they were way to expensive ($158!). Then I almost ordered them when they went on sale, but I hesitated and they sold out in my size. I told myself that although I liked them (and they are fully lined!) I certainly don't need them Yet, when I saw them in store and the price came down to $34 I bought them. They were not even final sale, but I never considered returning them, which is rare for me.
I was wondering if they are versatile enough, but once I brought them home I realized that they go with so many things in my closet. I tried them with three cashmere sweaters but I can envision many other combinations.
This was a tonal combination with cashmere popover in heather agate. I love this sweater and I find the neckline very flattering and cozy looking.
I think I overdid it with matching lipstick and it would have been better with something more red or more pink.
This is a more preppy version of this outfit, with navy blazer and light camel v-neck. I added red shoes for some punch, I suppose I got conditioned into thinking that I need it, lol. I think the shoes in eggplant or some deep berry hue would be ideal.
Of course I had to try it with blue, doesn't everything go with blue?
Actually, I liked it the best this way. The colors are even more saturated irl and they bring out the richness in each other. The burgundy tank brings some of those tones in the trousers and makes the cobalt pop.
That's all folks!
Do you own stovepipe checked trousers or similar pants?
Which color combo do you like the best?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
