I’ve always been a big fan of the aesthetics of emmy design, a Swedish vintage reproduction brand, but never before had the chance to try on their beautiful pieces. Needless to say, I was over the moon they contacted me to review the Miss Fancy Pants slacks and sassy suspenders from their AW15 collection!
Emmy’s size range stretches from UK size 6 to 24, which I really appreciate. I decided to go with the Miss Fancy Pants slacks in brown pinstripe (in Scandinavian size 48). Now, practically all of the trousers I own are custom-made and custom-sized so I was initially a tad bit worried about the fit of slacks that aren’t literally made for my body. I’m happy to report back that my initial concern turned out to be completely unfounded. After having the pants shortened, they’re a great fit and super comfy!
The slacks paired with emmy’s brown striped suspenders have practically become my uniform for this winter. I love the extra high waist of the trousers and the fact that they have pockets. The pinstriped brown twill resemblances a fine wool weave, which I think will take me through the Scandinavian spring and early summer as well. Over all, the slacks and the suspenders make a versatile outfit with sass a plenty!
The Miss Fancy Pants are available in brown salt & pepper, navy pinstripe, brown pinstripe and black pinstripe. The Sassy Suspenders are available in black & white, navy and brown striped. You can get yours via emmy design. Oh and I’m wearing tassel earrings from my other Swedish fave, Suzywan Deluxe. Scandinavia represent!
