Summer without the Sunshine

Claire Lopez Chinos, Cropped Trousers, Trousers Leave a Comment

Right, I’m going to do a little bit of reverse psychology on the weather and write about trousers in the hope that this will somehow herald the return of the sunshine… Clearly, I am actually aware that this will have zero bearing on the British climate. But anything’s worth a try, right? So if you’re bored of your jeans, here …

Posh Joggers

Claire Lopez Joggers, Trousers Leave a Comment

What has all the comfort of a jogger but with way more style? Well, actually it’s just a jogger but one that is in a different material. It has all the same features – the elasticated or drawstring waist and the looser leg shape which is either tapered or cuffed at the hem. Add a few details if you want and Bob’s your uncle, you’ve got …

Bottom’s Up

Back to those relaxed bottoms of yours – if you read last week’s post where I was looking at fitted knitwear then you will know what I’m talking about. If not, then I am not actually referring to your physical attributes, I am just referring to anything that is not a skinny jean or trouser. Often the way to stop feeling like you are in …

Like many people, I tend to live in my jeans and have a fair few pairs that I am very attached to. But that hasn’t always been the case.

Joggers: from sofa to FROW

Claire Lopez Joggers Leave a Comment

Happy New Year! I am currently engaged in a battle of the head versus the heart. The head says, it’s January sale time, is freezing cold and generally time to hunker down in a whole load of cosy and comforting clothes. The heart, however, is full of hope and of a Spring season which although is about a million months …

Black trousers: but not as you know them

Claire Lopez Joggers, Trousers Leave a Comment

I give up. It’s not about to become balmy and Mediterranean overnight so no more chat about maxi dresses, sunshine, pool-sides and holidays. Instead let’s get back to reality and to what we can actually wear in this vile and drizzly weather. I find I get to a certain point in the year and am bored of jeans because they are …

Denim dilemmas

Claire Lopez Denim, Trousers Leave a Comment

For many of us, buying denim is like trying to find ‘Mr Right’ – you quite simply have to kiss a few frogs before you find your Prince Charming. Most of us would rather stick pins in our eyes than go jean shopping because it can be such a painful and disappointing process. Why do we put so much stall by finding the …
