French Connection wide-leg trousers
This is a kind of a "battening down the hatches" time in fashion right now. The high street hasn't quite whipped out the exciting new stock and we're all waiting with baited breath for London Fashion Week. My advice is to hunker down and stick to safe but stylish outfits until the season's fashion innovations hit the stores. My favourite pick is French Connection's wide-leg 'jack' trousers (£85), they're suitably fashion-forward but manage to sit on the fashion fence a bit thus buying you some time to make judicious on-trend purchases in a few months. Versatile enough to suit a basic work outfit you can also team with wedges and bell-sleeved blouse for a high-fashion look.
