Life's Too Short For An Uncomfortable Trouser



Suffering for fashion is something I never thought I'd do, yet when I think back I realise that on many occasions, I most certainly have done. I've worn shoes that have made my feet bleed (although whether that's suffering for fashion or whether that's just women's shoes I'm not sure), I've worn bras that have left me with an underwire mark until the morning after I've taken them off and I've worn countless pairs of trousers that have dug into my waist and needed the button undoing as soon as I've eaten so much as a crumb.

So, if I'm supposedly not willing to suffer for fashion, why have I? The difficulty comes when you find something you absolutely adore so you keep it, comfortable or not and because you love it so much you'll also wear it, comfortable or not. 

So here I am taking a stand against uncomfortable clothing, in particular, trousers. I was discussing how much I love culottes/baggy trousers/elasticated waistbands with a friend the other day (side note: said friend has just started a blog and you should definitely go and check it out) and she came out with the line 'life's too short for an uncomfortable trouser' and aside from my immediate thought that it would be an excellent title for a blog post, I thought YES, life really is too short isn't it?

It's easy to get caught up in what's flattering or what's fashionable and despite all good intentions that you're always going to be comfort over fashion, you suddenly find yourself wearing what feels like some sort of contraption rather than an outfit that requires some careful getting in and out of. Nah, I am not here for that. I've spoken before about how I think you can have both comfort and style and I still stand by that, I just need to remind myself of it every so often.


Trousers - Asos (here *aff) | Top - Asos (here *aff) | Sunglasses - Primark

These culottes are the perfect example of what I'm talking about. Elasticated waistband, tie that can be adjusted throughout the day (ie after meals) and just downright comfortable. I also bought some trousers recently that are essentially pyjama bottoms so I'm sure they'll make their way to a blog post near you sometime soon.

Here's to elasticated waistbands and all the happiness they bring.

Are you a comfort over style kinda person?

  3. I completely agree, life is way too short for that. I haven't worn a pair of tight jeans in over a year, leggings are just so much more comfortable, why wear clothes that you couldn't sleep in if you had to. I love your outfit btw, the culottes are amazing xx

  4. Amy I can totally feel you! I bought a seemingly beautiful pair of dungarees from Primark last week. They are beautiful and perfect for autumn BUT I hadn't realised how annoyingly short on the crotch they are!!! Because I washed them I cannot return them back so I gave them to the local charity shops :(
    What a shame and waste of my money!
