The Classic Wideleg + IChing Charcoal
Inspired by the elegance of the Vietnamese ao dai, and charming in its subtle feature of the IChing Charcoal, this edition's streamlined silhouette is easily teamed with any manner of top, formalised for the office or slipped into for an exploration of quaint streets.
Model wears Matter Size 2. 181cm tall.
Style it with The Button-Back Top + Iching Charcoal
With a V-neckline and sleeveless boxy structure, the top is highly flattering on different body types. Featuring a novel four-button back detail for an extra statement.
100% medium weight cotton. Selectively bundled and dyed by hand with azo-free dyes, the threads are then handloomed. Colour and weaving variations may occur, as it is a part of its charm.
Wash separately in first few washes to prevent colour runs. After that, machine wash with similar colours. For best results, handwash cold or use delicate machine wash. Do not tumble dry. Line dry inside out. Cool iron inside-out.
Super comfortable. Excellent fit.
I already own the skirt and the top in this print, and decided to add these wideleg pants into the mix. They are very comfortable, and a versatile pant, though I think my body shape (pear) will look best when these are paired with a more fitted top (sorry, matching crop!). These can be dressed up or down. I ordered a size 3 as my measurements indicated that was what I should get, and I found them to be decidedly too big. For reference, I'm typically a size 30 - 31, US size 10ish. I should absolutely have gone with a 2. With its wideleg styling, it's not a big deal, as I can just move the outer buttons to the inside. It would be wonderful if these styles came with an extra button (or two), or even if spare matching buttons were available to add to an order in the event that adjustments need to be made. I get so many compliments on the matching components, and I'm sure these will prove to be just as popular once I finish altering them.
I usually wear a size US 4 or 6 (or between 27-29 in jeans, depending on the brand) and these pants in size 1 fit me beautifully. The adjustable button closure also accommodates my very fluid body as I gain or lose weight over the month... I'm a big fan of the deep pockets and the print. They're easy to pair with casual and dressier tops and shoes.
I can't adequately express how much I love this Jumpsuit! The fact that they are a Top + Pants has helped keep my wardrobe versatile while maintaining an ethically inspired wardrobe! They fit sooooo well and both the top and pants are extremely comfy! I'm so proud of the story, design, and production of this outfit. It absolutely warms my heart to know the makers of this MATTER Print garment. Many thanks to the team at Matter for serving both the maker and the buyer in this wonderful process of Slow fashion!
