My favourite Autumn/Winter 2013 ready-to-wear collection has been from Saint Laurent - a de luxe, designer take on punk and grunge.
I looked longingly at their black leather skinny trousers but I confess that I do actually find the challenge of "cheap chic" exciting. There's such a feeling of satisfaction when I find just what I'm looking for at an affordable price. I was thrilled when I found these little black faux leather skinny trousers at Calzedonia.
Calzedonia, an Italian brand, make tights, socks, leggings, stretch trousers and swimwear. I find that their leggings and trousers are good for petite women, both in fit and length.
