Trouser Phobia

I, like many plus size women, never wear trousers. The main reason for this is that I can never find a pair to fit that doesn't a) make me look quadruple the size or b) fall down as I walk due to the waist being huge. 

All through uni I wore jeans; badly fitting, vom inducing jeans, that did absolutely nothing for me and chub rubbed almost immediately. When I left I swore I wouldn't wear jeans again unless they were absolutely banging...sadly, I haven't found them yet. 

But I digress. What I am loving at the moment are printed trousers, so when I saw these on Simply Be I thought I'd take a punt and order them. 

They have cheetah bums on! They're polyester, very thin and floaty so perfect for summer. I have pretty short legs and they are a little long on me, but not so long that they touch the ground (I wanted the baggy look so don't mind). What I like about these is that the waist is elasticated so fits well, the bum and thighs are roomy enough, but they're also tapered at the ankle. Oh, and did I say POCKETS?

Today I wore them really casually with a tshirt and flats, but I think I could pop a statement necklace on, some heels/wedges and be happy wearing them out for the night. 

You haven't seen the last of me in printed trousers...
