Tightwad Tuesday: Joseph Ange Cotton Cropped Pants for Pennies

Les chats de chaton, in the left corner you will find Joseph’s ambrosial Ange Cotton Cropped Pants, the very same ones seen upon the gorgeous gams of Cheryl Cole; to the right you will spot ASOS' jazzy Jet Pocket Slim Cropped Pants in Blue.

Though the Joseph gems are constructed out of 100% cotton, whereas the ASOS pretties are crafted out of a polyester/viscose/elastane blend; for just $73.86, as opposed to the $275.00 one would require to add Ange to your legwear collection, they are every bit as capable of allowing the frugal fashionista to hop aboard the colored pants trend – at a price that gives one the opportunity to scoop up all six saucy shades (Blue, Mustard, Peacock Blue, Pink, Black, and Rouge)!

Are you having a tightwad moment darlings, or are you plagued with a craving to splurge?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Net-A-Porter and ASOS for the pictures.

Now we're talking ... I really like this look for the summer and would like more than one pair, so I'm going with the ASOS :)

Tights Lover said...

Loving these cropped pants! Going tightwad for these...can't argue with the price of the ASOS!

StyleID said...

Maybe the picture is better or maybe the Asos are really better but I am liking the more than the Joseph ones ..... plus, who needs 100% cotton?
I can do fine with polyester, viscose, etc.

Lovely pants!!<3

Haute World said...

I love electric blue and from the photos, the ASOS ones actually look better. I'd probably have to see them in person though. From experience, I know that ASOS quality can be horrid and Joseph is incredible.

jess said...

I love the color of the pants. It's a lovely shade of blue.

doranpskincare said...

Coloured trousers are one of my favourite trends. This blue colour looks great. I love the ASOS ones: they look like they fit better.

Such a great blue to have this summer.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

ASOS for sure.

I definitely be cool with the ASOS pair--I actually like how they're styled a little better! Such a pretty color, too.

Kavery said...

I saw these on ASOS and felt a pang of sadness. When is one too old to wear slim coloured pants? I wish I knew!

Ms LadyCakes said...

wow, they are strikingly similar, so I would take the less expensive of the pair. I would love to find a great pair of bright blue colored jeans for the summer!
