If you've been reading my blog for a while now you will know that I'm a big fan of stripes. A pair of 1950s striped slacks has been on my vintage wish list for a while now and I have thought about making a pair but haven't found any fabric that I like yet, so when I saw these trousers on the Zara website I clicked 'add to basket' straight away!
I find high street trousers never fit properly and I had to take the waist in a bit on these trousers. It's a pretty simple alteration if you just add darts to the waistband, a tip I picked up from my tailoring teacher - beats taking the whole waistband off! I teamed the trousers with a simple navy knit and matching accessories. My beloved navy Chanel is getting a lot of use this summer!
