[Guest Post] Crime of Fashion: M&S Velour Wideleg Trousers

"Formal trousers" fail

"Formal trousers" fail

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into Marks and Spencer: this happens.  If these were listed as lounge pants or leisurewear, I’m not saying it would make their existence right, but possibly it would make them more acceptable.  But M&S?  Dear old M&S, stalwart of the British nation have these listed under Formal Trousers.  Formal?  Really?  The drawstring, the pockets: they’re jogging bottoms, and damn ugly ones at that!

But if you like them and want to wear them to a formal occasion this Christmas (although really, we’re begging you not to), you can get them here for £25.

    Oh yeah, tuck them into beige Ugg boots with the matching bag to complete the look!

    I’m getting concerned though – saw some velour monstrosities in Asda but thought they were a one-off – it seems that’s not the case though…

    I own something similar. They are grey, very comfy, and, oh, are the bottoms to a set of pajamas!
