The cat’s pyjamas: Stella McCartney vs Zara
You know that pyjama style trousers are big this Spring. My thinking is that they hide a multitude of sins- dodgy fake tans or wintery-pale legs and are expandable for Sunday lunchings. My only issue is this…have you seen anyone outside of the pages of a fashion magazine or not seeking to be obviously snapped by a street-style blog wearing them?
I alas have not and was really hoping I would as I am in love with Zara’s cheap and chic pyjama bottoms, which look so Stella McCartney. I was apprehensive about the elastic waist but fear not – it’s not too bad and dare I say comfy (bring on old age!) After trying on quite a few pairs I have learned this…unless you are a lean column shape, avoid elasticated ankle cuffs! I favour H&M and Topshop’s neat-fitting monochrome numbers (with pleather detailing or subtle print) and like the length, which artfully finishes at the flattering part of your ankle. But Zara has produced the most McCartney-esque and as we all know Stella is the cat’s pyjamas.
Just one styling note…wear with heels…ONLY!
