Insight & Inspiration

We are big fans of Emmy Design Sweden so we were thrilled when Emmy agreed to make these gorgeous 1940s style trousers in a soft lightweight woven fabric just for us! We chose this green fabric firstly because we are huge fans of green anything, and secondly, most importantly, because of the feel against the skin. We're very picky about fabrics and will not stock anything that irritates so you can buy these with confidence that the fabric is comfortable to wear.

We offer a range of coordinated classics to create a chic look that makes for smart office wear / work attire that retains individual style. Click here to shop all of our separates. 

Detailed Description

These 1940s high waist trousers are just like the pants worn by one of our favourite style icons, Katherine Hepburn. These elegant wide leg pants really do revive the styles of glamorous bygone eras. The stars of the silver screen seemed to exude effortless chic and the clothing of those years was more tailored, feminine and elegant. Consider Katherine Hepburn: famous for defying conventions of the time Hepburn was bold, brilliant and beautiful, to borrow even an ounce of her style and confidence and you are on your way to looking great.

For work wear: Combine with a jacket and smart blouse. For everyday style: Try one of our Own Range blouses that we make here in London with one of our fabulous knits such as The Ice Skater Cardigan, and some elegant brogues or coordinating low heels.

These beautiful 1940s trousers are a good looking wardrobe staple. The high waist and wide leg style of this tailored trouser will create a classic tailored look that exudes effortless style. They are a great choice if you are looking for smart day wear or work wear. Classic style such as this never goes out of style and can be appreciated and admired wherever you go; from office to meeting to drinks or a date. If understated elegance is what you are after, these are the trousers for you.
