Ask the Stylist: Cigarette Pants

Dear Ask the Stylist,

I’m loving the cigarette pants look but I’m only 5foot tall and have major trouble finding trousers that fit me well. Is there anywhere you can recommend that I could try for a nice pair of cigarette pants or because of my small size is this a look I should avoid all together? Thanks. L.C

The good news is you can wear this style of trousers if you opt for the cropped version and heels. Cropped pants actually lengthen the leg.

I love this look; it’s very Isabel Marant AW10 (pictured) and oozes Parisian chic!

It sounds cold for this time of year but by wearing a skin coloured pair of tights underneath, you should get away with it.

Zara have plenty of cigarette pants but they are all super long in length. Only buy here if you have a good seamstress to crop them for you. which is a difficult length to get right!

Style tip: To shop this look, go to stores that offer a “short” or “petite” length. Topshop, GAP and Dorothy Perkins all spring to mind. To recreate the look at home, roll the cuff of your fav slim pants to 2-4 inches below mid calf.

Here are some of my favourites (click on hyperlink to see product):

Topshop, Black ankle grazers with faux leather trip,  £46

Gap at Arnotts or Dundrum, Slim crop pants,£45.95
