I'm a huge fan of wardrobe pieces that are versatile. Pieces that can be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for a chill day, things that are timeless and classic. I got these "awkward" trousers for Christmas and I never knew how much I needed them in my life until the moment I unwrapped them. They're the perfect mix between smart and casual, between comfy and chic, geeky and stylish. Granted, they may not be quite warm enough for the Arctic style cold we're currently experiencing but being honest I've never been very good at dressing weather appropriately!
So what is the "awkward trouser"? Basically, they're named after their awkward length, being not quite full length but not quite "cropped" either. I guess they're most similar to culottes in style and on my rather small frame, they sit just below the middle of my shin. Don't let the word "awkward" put you off though! They're actually pretty easy to wear, whether you want to wear them for a party or a day out shopping. I've teamed them with a classic stripe tee and trainers here for the some laid-back vibes but equally you could wear a nude bralet and some strappy heels for a super sassy, party outfit.

You may recognise the coat as my grandma's from one of my previous fashion coats and it's still standing by me. It's one of my favourite things to just throw on over anything and everything no matter where I'm going - it feels like wearing a big fluffy blanket! It compliments this look perfectly and I can't thank my Grandma enough for letting me have her "dog walking" coat!
How would you style the awkward length trousers?
