Lacey Bloomer Things

Lady Julianne did a post on wearing bloomers on their own, as opposed to underneath a dress, and it got me thinking. The idea appeals to me, but I have to admit that I think bloomers are really unflattering, and that I would probably never where them. However, these shorts from Asia Jam (also available in gold) give off a similar vibe, and I like them very much:

I can picture them over black tights, worn with a white collared shirt tucked in and black suspenders. Add some nerd glasses with thick black frames and some hot black ankle boots for my ideal winter girl-meets-boy look.

I admit it ... the shorts didn't appeal to me hugely until I thought of how I would wear them. I'm not sure whether I can pull them off, though.

But oh, the contrast of fairytale lace with an undergarment vibe paired with menswear! It is dancing around in my head, and it won't go away.

I'm glad I can dwell on this garment now, instead of on the fact that when I finally made up my mind to buy those combat boots, they were no longer available in my size. Screw being sensible - next time I will just buy, buy, buy without worrying about whether I would actually wear the things!

I made a post on Bloomers at the start of the season with the ways I hoped to incorporate them in to my own daily wardrobe. Maybe those ideas will be of more inspiration!

Those are lovely, and I like your outfit idea. I think that bloomers are like any variety of shorts - they don't suit everybody, and different lengths and styles are flattering to different body types. I like them because they're a new shape to play with and I don't wear conventional shorts. I have super-pale legs and some scars on my knees so I would want to wear tights with them, but I don't like the look of tights with plainer shorts.

ashe mischief - They seem like nice, innovative ideas, but I just don't see myself wearing bloomers. I bet you'll pull 'em off extreeeemely well, though.

diana - I really haven't seen them around that much...

ladyjulianne - I do think that bloomers would look better with tights than bare legs anyway.
