Harry high pants!

I love high waisted trousers, I several pairs of Toppers jeans in this style. I am not very tall at 5ft 6 but have an incredibly long body so am really out of proportion. I find that high waisted items, be it a skirt or trousers, flatter me as they distort the length of my body.

Seeing as I am a funny shape I have always struggled to find trousers that fit me well. They either don’t fit the waist or the hips, god damn it. That was until I reluctantly pulled on a Warehouse pair. The said pair were heavy woollen, high waisted and black. Exactly what I was looking for. I tried on my size and was surprised to find that as they are so high waisted they were actually too big. At this moment in time I started to hyperventilate a little at the shock and joy of finding the perfect pair of trousers. I found the next size down and tried these on…..only to find that they bloomin well fitted me! Well they were slightly too long in the leg, but nothing a good pair of heels wouldn’t solve.

So I just had to buy them and here they are.
They were reasonably priced at about £40 and are great for this pathetic weather. They have incredible detail around the waist for the price. There is a tie for the belt to pull the trousers in around the waist, with the top of the trousers material folding into pleats which branch out from the body.
