*Repeats to self* You can totally pull these off. No comfort zone surpassed here.
Shop the look:
There’s something quite sobering about having your mum tell you that you’re too old to wear a particular item of clothing. In this particular episode of My Mum Is A Hater But I Love Her Really, it was a pair of vinyl trousers – a step above the its leather equivalent – whose turn it was to withstand the quizzical look that only African parents know how to produce. Even as I type, I find my face crumpling into that look in imitation of my mum, and I’m sure that some of you will know what that face looks like without me having to say (or write) much more.
Funnily enough, unlike my last article of the same name, no comfort zone was surpassed in the making of this post. If it wasn’t already obvious to you from my earlier post on how to elevate the basic hoodie (and the many rants on Snapchat and Instagram stories about the lack of shopping options in Belgium), I’m pretty obsessed with this particular pair from Topshop. And I intend to wear them long after they have enjoyed their moment in the warm “fa-shun” spotlight.
