The Friday Fashion Challenge

10 October 2008


It's Friday afternoon so time for a fun little fashion challenge. Our mission today? To find out why in the bleedin' nora are trousers just so long these days? Ok, ok, so we know designer trousers are often made with a model's body in mind, but for those of us poor mortals with a normal inside trouser leg measurement, buying a hot pair of pants this season is becoming increasingly frustrating. Just look at the pair that have just been sent into the Grazia office. We made our 5'1/2'' Graziaette Entertainment Writer Hannah Marriott size up to these tartan bootcuts - they look like a whole body suit, not a pair of pants. In fact, she could probably chop the bottom hems off and fashion herself a snazzy matching top! Perhaps it's time to take lessons from the Europeans: they are accustomed to buying trousers knowing they'll have to be taken up...
