The 40s Secretary Trousers in Charcoal are inspired by the trousers that those progressive women wore in the 1940s! The high waist forms a beautiful contrast with the wide leg and is very flattering, especially with fuller hips/buttocks. The pockets and button detail add the perfect finishing touch. Made of a sturdy yet supple, charcoal grey fabric with an amazing, classic chevron pattern and finished off with a chic fold over at the wide legs. Pair with a white blouse and pumps for a perfect business look in retro style!

Reviews from our customers
Leider nein

Die Farbe ist leider mehr grau als braun. Der Stoff ist weich aber etwas dünner als ich angenommen habe.
Ich habe Größe S bestellt aber die Hose ist mir VIEL zu groß und zu lang.
Laut Größentabelle müsste mir sie mir gut passen bis sogar etwas zu klein sein.
Ich werde die Hose trotzdem behalten und kleiner nähen, da ich nicht extra Rückversandkosten zahlen will.

Liebe Helen, es tut uns leid dass die Secretary Trousers nicht ganz Ihre Erwartungen entspricht. Bitte entschuldigen Sie uns dafür! Falls Sie die Hose vielleicht doch lieber retournieren möchten, erstatten wir selbstverständlich das Porto falls ein Fehler in der Größentabelle festgestellt wird. Diesbezüglich werde Ich mich mit Ihnen in Verbindung stellen.  

Liebe Grüße,

Fabulous trousers
I'm love with the fabric and the colour, the fit is perfect and they are super comfy! Definitely recommend!
Nice high waist for low cost!

The blue looks more blue black and the charcoal looks more gray. Still nice pants, nice fit and love the high waist. Need to get them trimmed since i'm short, but they're a nice deal for the price.

Dear Diana, I'm happy to hear you love your new trousers! I'm sorry the colour didn't turn out as you expected! We always try to display the colour as realistically as possible, but due to difference in pixels or clarity the colour could still be different. We apologise for the confusion! Hopefully you can still enjoy these gorgeous items because I'm sure you look gorgeous in them ;-)

Kind regards,
Customer Service

Eine tolle, elegante Hose. Sitzt prima und der Stoff gefällt mir außerordentlich gut.
Love these pants! De wijde broeken zitten heel fijn en geven een mooie uitstraling. Mijn benen lijken eindeloos lang. De capri is ook super, er zit een beetje zilverdraad in, wat ikzelf op de foto's niet goed had gezien. Dit geeft de broek ook iets feestelijks. Super!
