Miss Selfridge poppy printed trousers and jacket: could you wear them to Tesco?

Anyone else seeing a pair of floral print pyjamas here?

They’re not: this is Miss Selfridge’s poppy print jacket (£29) and matching trousers (£29), and we can’t help but wonder whether Miss Selfridge have created these as a cunning way to allow supermarket shoppers to get around the “no pyjamas” rule currently in effect in some stores? “Why, no!” you could say. “These aren’t pyjamas! This is my stylish, poppy-print-pant outfit from Miss Selfridge! Unhand me, officer!”

We’re going to assume these two items probably weren’t intended to be worn together, as a suit (although you never really know these days, do you?), but can you envisage wearing either of them, together or apart?

    I like the jacket, but the trousers are just hideous… Jacket plus simple pencil dress in black, gray or red would be just perfect.

    I suppose if it was Wear or Die, I’d pair them with some bright red stilettos and lipstick. Clearly I wouldn’t be getting out of bed in that get-up.

    Hmm… I guess you could wear the trousers with gladiator flats and an ivory or cream vest and cornflower blue cardigan for a ‘mooching around the house and popping into tescos for a packet of crisps’ look. But preferably? No. I wouldn’t wear these.

    Depending on the material… the jacket is cut well and could look good with black dress pants.

    Well I bought something fairly similar from Miss Selfridge before Xmas, only the pattern was black with white flowers and rather than trousers the bottoms were shorts so I’d give it a go. But it totally depends on where you live. If you live in a trendy city nobody would bat an eyelid but you’d get some odd looks in smaller places.

    p.s

    I’d def wear them both but probably rarely together! It’s a print overload!

    The trousers are horrible – I have pyjama bottoms that look more like normal trousers than those! They actually resemble harem pants. If I live to my eighties I might consider the jacket…

    As Tesco has forbidden people to buy there wearing pyjamas… no way to where these jacket and trousers together… they reminded me of an ex colleague of mine… she used to wear jackets and trousers like these ones you are showing… shr had two “suits”, one black, one white and with prints like flowers, fruit… we all thought she was late to work, and didn’t have the time to change her pyjamas… (but pls, don’t misunderstand me, she was a very nice person and excellent professional!)

    I kind of like the jacket but i’m not sure about the pants. It’s a vintage look, which is cute, but I think i’d worry about it being too “granny” looking 😛

    The jacket would be great to wear with a pair of black leggings and ankle booties as for the pant you can do the same by wearing a black blazer and ankle booties er the booties being black of course now to wear them together for myself may be a bit too much
