For the next post in my ‘She Wears The Trousers’ series, I continue with my spotlight on Vivien of Holloway. This week,  I’m looking at their pedal pushers.

In the past, I stayed away from slimmer-fitting trousers as I was conscious that my thighs looked disproportionately larger than my calves. Now though, I honestly couldn’t less! I got these pedal pushers at the same time that I got my soft 40s trousers – again it was Marie’s suggestion and what a great suggestion it was.

These pedal pushers have definitely got a more casual feel to them in comparison to the 40s trousers. They’re great for when I’m teaching as I can move about in them really easily and dress them up after work.

As described by VOH,

Slightly re-modelled and in authentic fabrics, our Pedal Pushers are back! With our trademark high-waist, a rivet button and side zip, and with a delicate side slit at the ankle, these gorgeous slimline pants are wonderfully flattering- making the most of your curves!

I love the purple colour of these. Sensible-me would normally go for black or navy but I thought I’d try something a little different. I will definitely by grabbing these in other colours too though! Purple looks great with neutrals like black, white, grey and tan. Red, green and gold are also gorgeous colours to pair with it too.

For this post, I added a red VOH slash-neck top, a hand-made vintage cardigan and a red beret. I felt pretty fabulous in this ensemble!

Hair and make-up consisted of my usual combination of wet-set, Kat Von D eyeliner and liquid lipstick in ‘Outlaw’.
