5 REASONS WHY I LOVE ZARA SIDE STRIPE TROUSERS:
They can’t keep them on the shelves since they launched and I can see why - these little gems can be the hardest working items in your wardrobe for so many reasons:
1. The vertical stripe + slightly cropped length = leg lengthening.
2. They work on all body shapes and heights - I have yet to see anybody who didn’t look great in them. I love styling them on Mom’s doing the school run, college students, smartened up for the office with a silk blouse/fine statement knit, and mid-30 somethings like me who aren’t overly fond of their knees on show and prefer trousers to dresses/skirts! (We all have our thing - knees is mine ;-)
3. If you are bored of reaching for the old reliable skinny jeans and want something instantly cooler yet more polished, comfortable (elastic waistband) and breathable.
4. They work with heels and trainers equally well, even on shorter folk like me (5ft 4”). 5. You can dress them up or down effortlessly (tucked in t-shirt or camisole, chic with a blazer/Winter coat, awesome with a leather jacket….you can basically mix these with almost ANYthing as they are essentially a neutral.
When something works this well for me I tend to stockpile, so I got the Zara pair in Black, Light Grey (both with white stripe) and Green with Navy Stripe. To see how these look on mere mortals of average of non-model proportions, check out the pics of me in my black pair (sorrrrry they’re very blurry - I will get clearer pics very soon). NOTE: go down a size if you are ordering online.
For those of you living in the Netherlands, ‘WE Fashion' are currently doing 30% off this navy pair with metallic blue stripe for only €35 (from €49.99) Gorgeous for Winter,I have worn mine 3 times already in 3 different ways - so glad I snapped them up in the promo.
Also loving their navy/red sports luxe jumper a LOT.

the last sample on my tracksuit pattern before I start production on my label .. 😱 2.5 years in planning a year in development and a lifetime in my dreams. If you want something bad enough my advice is to just go for it! if you work really hard and believe in yourself there is nothing you can't learn or accomplish 👊 very excited to see how far I can take my other passion (besides music) in the world. Sign up to the newsletter at www.helenalegend.com to hear about the launch details 🖤
a new sample .. perfecting details .. (some minor adjustments still needed.. but finally there!!) I don't think people realize how much time effort and 💸 goes into making something like this from scratch.. I know I didn't! .. I want it to be 100% perfect 🖤
