Don't just take our word for it.  This is what one customer had to say about her trousers.

 Dear Rowena,

Thank you so much for my order, it arrived safely and in time for my Palm Swings Lindy Hop weekend. Everybody complimented me on the trousers. I mentioned your shop so many times 😊

Here is just a little picture from Sunday.

Kind regards,


Favourite trousers 1940s style

A smart pair of trousers that fit and flatter are something that many women rely on.  They are not just practical they are confidence boosting, especially when others give you compliments!  When they sit on the side of smart casual they can be worn to all kinds of things providing versatility.  

Good fabrics and responsible manufacturers also mean the trousers are more likely to last, leading to both reduced consumption and reduced environmental impact. 

classic feminine style Trousers for curvy women with bigger hips

There are three popular trouser styles we buy from our Swedish supplier Emmy and two have just arrived in store.  They are high waist, wide leg styles that are great on curvy women especially those with bigger hips and thighs. 

The Fancy Worker Pants

The fancy worker pants are classics in our London womenswear boutique. The waistband sits on the natural waist, accentuating most women's smallest part.  Room in the hips and a wide leg means most women favour these as they give a feminine tailored look. Now available in navy salt and pepper or brown.

 Miss Fancy Pants Slacks

The more stylised Emmy Design Miss Fancy Pants slacks rise right up just under the bust defining the waist area in contrast to the roomy hip and bottom area, increasing the idea of an hourglass figure. It's amazing how many women think these won't suit them and are converted to total fans preaching how comfy they are. Available now in navy salt and pepper or black.

Of course if trousers aren't your thing we have plenty of skirts for you to consider.   By far our customers favourite shape is the A-Line.  Sian loves her green skirt from last years collection and you can see looks great on her.
Emmy A-Line Flattering Skirt

This season we've repeated this Emmy classic A-Line skirt in a new salt and pepper fabric that will take you from day to night no problem.
