It’s happened. I’m contemplating elasticated waist trousers. Next stop velcro slippers. But these are not the crimplene ‘nan slacks’ my mum wears, these are sporty and stretchy, with a go-faster striped elastic waistband. They’re for speeding up, not slowing down. Let’s call them e-waisters (elasticated wasters), now doesn’t that feel better? I spotted the e-waisters in Uniqlo the other day, after I’d circumnavigated the Carine Roitfeld collection. They’re a lovely woven cotton/linen/spandex blend fabric, like chinos with a sporty twist. And come in lots of colours: sky blue, primrose, khaki, navy, black.
Sporty e-waisters. They’re the future; available HERE.
