This winter has been unusually cold for Perth. In comparing it to this time last year, I can remember it being quite cold at night but never during the day like it has been lately. So, I’ve had to look to other options in the way I dress as my usual stockings under skirts/shorts/dresses just isn’t keeping me warm enough this season.
I’ve never been much of a pants wearer but over the past month or so, I’ve come to slowly embrace them. They have always been a difficult one for me because either the fit wasn’t right, or I just didn’t think they suited me. However I’m starting to understand my body a bit more and getting to know what type of fit I like on me best. I found these vintage Comme ones on eBay; they’re a straight leg cut but I’ve rolled them up slightly to create a more tapered look, which I feel suits those with shorter frames better.
I’m pretty happy to have finally found a pair that I like and, they’ve been keeping me warm and snuggly, more so than stockings ever did!
