I may seem crazy, but I have recently discovered Topman’s great range of trousers! Lets all admit it the typical customer for Topman is not the most masculine, so I don’t feel too foolish.
2 weeks ago I was on a search for some ‘cord’ trousers. Having spent my whole day hunting around Trafford Centre, I was only able to find skinny fitted cords for women (which I really didn’t want).
After giving up in my final shop, Topshop, I happened to walk through Topman! To my surprise I found the exact trousers I wanted (for men.) My friends encouraged me to buy these which I did. Please major note.... sizes are so different for men! I was told I was a 28 (which is small for a man) - I’m actually a 32 (which is meant to be big). Girls have hips so it makes the shapes kinda strange, so do make sure you try. It was quite interesting also that the sales rep in Topman told me that a lot of girls do buy the trousers from Topman, that I was not the first. So that was kinda reassuring.
The trousers I’m wearing are the ‘Slim Chino W32 L32 (I’m a size 10 in women’s so this will give you an idea of sizes.) Another style I really liked was the ‘Drop Crotch.’ Again another popular choice for the ladies says the Topman rep.
Unsure what you think, but if you’re sick and tired of super skinnies give it ago! Primark have some great men’s chinos too for a cheaper test buy.
Also – scarf is from H&M in the new autumn range, they have a teal/brown which is fab!
Please note; I am not encouraging girls to dress like men, we do know that this goes against what we are taught. However I am encouraging girls to not be afraid to go for looser garments. High street has the habit of forcing us into tight items, don’t be scared to experiment, even if that means Topman or a bigger size!
