WHAT STYLE OF COMFY CASUAL PANTS DO YOU WEAR?

Winser-london-cashmere-lounge-suit

You know when you want comfy casual but you don’t fancy wearing jeans? What style of pants do you go for? The soft legs & elasticized waist or the stretch cotton trouser? Personally I love both & find them equally comfortable so either way I’m happy, it all depends on my mood I guess. My only requirement is that they look a million times more stylish than they feel on, if you get my drift? Basically I want to feel like I’m wearing tracky daks but be presentable in public. By the way I really don’t like leggings so let’s just get that out there now. Sorry if I’ve offended anyone but no, not ever. Leggings are terrific for the gym (which I also don’t like) or little girls. So that’s me out. End of. Now let’s move on…

Merino, Silk & Cashmere blend Loungewear

This lounge suit is probably more commonly worn with ballet flats or trainers. However when I first laid eyes on the most elegant tracky I’d ever seen I knew that my toffee coloured Blahniks would scream out “pick me!”. Of course I’m wearing what is essentially a high-end tracksuit, well to me the laziest person on earth, it is. My perfect off duty sloth out uniform elevated to glamour puss with one simple addition – sexy heels!

Since my awesome day at Stoke Park I’ve practically lived in this outfit due to the weather being so erratic. I love it with my Chanel ballets & it also looks gorgeous with my turquoise sandals but with these Loubys it is simply divine! So you see although it is essentially one style you really can alter the outfit quite a lot merely by changing your shoes.

Now ladies you are in for a treat because Winser London is having their sale & this tunic top has gone down to a measly £79. Not only that but the Miracle dress I wore here is now reduced to £99! You’re welcome.

Lightweight Cotton Twill Trousers

Next up are my other favourite comfy casual pants, Winsers stretch cotton twill trousers. I paired this khaki pair with a contrasting pink preppy style Tee. Hopefully you can see how comfy these stretch trews are although they actually look super smart don’t they? I’m wearing a tiny size 8 would you believe? I’m not sure if they appear too tight but I am certain they definitely don’t feel it! I suppose a 10 would work just as well although if I were you I’d go a size smaller than your usual because the stretch makes up for any discrepancy & the cut is slim – Sexy slim, not we can see what you had for breakfast  tight. The side pockets not only add another stylish element they also disguise any lumpy bits. Plus I just really like pockets in pants, well skirts too actually. These classic trousers also style umpteen different ways as I’m sure you can imagine & they come in five fabulous colours! I also love them in white although I’d fold up the hems to get that Summer in Capri  vibe. Imagine how fresh & chic they’d look with your white shirt, roman sandals & basket bag? Oh please take me back to Positano now! These pants also make the ideal holiday hero piece & at £79 it’s definitely worth buying a couple of pairs.

    How did I miss this post?!

    I love both outfits on you, but the first one with the cashmere leggings is my favourite. I adore wearing leggings (at home) so having a smart pair like this is fabulous. I have some cashmere trackies from Winser London and I LIVE IN THEM at home in the winter. I particularly like this warm caramel shade on you; you don’t wear it much but it looks so pretty and luxurious with your hair.

    If I looked like you do in those khaki chinos, I’d be wearing them every single day. They are so stunning on you. I love the preppy styling too. Beautiful, my friend. xx

    I like both but the khaki is a winner for me. Very good reading.
    Btw I am the most comfy person I know so far and I can’t stand leggings… seriously not even for the gym. It’s a No!

      Hahahaha that’s funny Fernanda. What about Rachels comment about her pleather leggings & cashmere sweater? I really like the sound of that but I probably wouldn’t class them as leggings though. xx

    I know you aren’t a leggings fan but I do love a pair of ‘pleather’ leggings and a cosy cashmere knit for loungewear thats also suitable for leaving the house!

    That lux trackie also gets my vote

    Ohhhh khaki and pink! A new colour combo obsession right there!! And those sandals add one heck of a style punch. And I have said before how much I love the camel top and trews. Flawless styling, in my humble opinion x

      Oooh great to hear I’ve introduced you to a new colour combo Rozanne. I love anything pink & green at the moment. Hence why I’ve reupholstered my old Ercol chair in green velvet & painted my living room pink! Ya shoulda heard Hubs when he came home that day Hahahahaha xx

    Wow, I just love this lounge suit! Looks so comfy and luxurious at the same time. I usually wear leggings at home so this should be a nice addition to my rather simple collection. Looking gorgeous there! xx Abby

      So happy to hear you say that you like both. I know they’re two quite different looks & not for everyone, each has it’s place though right?

    I do like the WinserLondon trousers. The straight cut fit me very well. I like that they wear well and last for ages I have a couple of their trousers from about four years ago and they are still going strong.
