I like wearing roomy clothes (baggy seems like such a gross term). I have my fair share of fitted frocks, even bullied myself into buying a pair of ‘jeans’ that are practically leggings which I am having a difficult time forgiving myself for, and so I feel apportioned a certain amount of days during which I can go roomy. Anyway, my cousin – who only outranks me in age by a mere two and a half months – is ripely turning into a Jewish mother. We spent last weekend together and she tells me, “you have a nice figure, why do you hide it in roomy clothes?” I happen to think that roomy clothes, proportioned correctly, really work for girls.
Here are some of my favorite roomy trousers. From World War II or perhaps Korea, it looks like they’ve seen some action in their day. Hard as nails but soft to the touch (as we all should be); faded, frayed, and spotted for character. Beautiful center seam on front and back, maybe an homage to the classic center crease.
Plus,we’ve all got this life to live, why not be comfy while doing it. Happy hunting. XOX
