Got a special occasion coming up? The Carrick wide-legged trousers by Boden are showstoppers that’ll turn heads and win you admirers. Here’s why I love them…
Fun and flirty
Think trousers are too stiff and formal for summer events? The Carrick trousers definitely aren’t. The soft silky fabric gives them fluidity and the big retro belt cinches in your waist. Wear them with the ruffly Alicia top you’ll feel fun, feminine and flirty. Low-key it’s not, but you’ll feel at home at a wedding, garden party or the races.
Dress them up or down
At £90 these trousers are an investment piece. Luckily, they are really versatile and will work hard for you all summer long. They look just as fabulous dressed down – possibly more so! To keep things casual I swapped the flouncy Alicia top, with the relaxed linen Olivia tee and the Beatrix sandals. Just add a big French basket and you’re ready to go. I wore these to my local market and got so many compliments – plus it was easy for my kids to spot me in the crowd!
You don’t have to be tall
I’m 5″4 and long wide-leg trousers often drown me. The Carrick trousers in regular are just right on me when worn with the Margot block heeled sandals. These retro-style sandals are incredibly comfortable and easy to walk in – perfect for dancing and dashing about on lawns. The Carrick trousers also work well with the completely flat Beatrix sandal, in which case they just skim the floor. If you’re looking for an outfit for a summer wedding then this one won’t let you down!
