Spring (my favourite season by far) has made its way to the Southern Hemisphere and with a new season comes new trends.
Wide-leg flowy pants paying tribute to the 70’s have made their way into 2015. I was a little iffy about them as I prefer a more tapered silhouette. I felt wide-leg pants would make me look larger , and I don’t have height on my side as well. On the look out for something to wear to a wedding recently I spotted these pants at Zara.
What actually caught my eye was the silhouette. It’s as flowy as a skirt, and drapes beautifully. So I gave it a shot and I stood in front of the mirror amazed at how instead of looking dowdy I appeared slimmer and taller (with heels added of course). I hunted for the perfect top (and came home with two) but ended up wearing something from my closet. The white was the perfect palette to offset the busy print on the pants. Floral prints have long been a warm weather staple so no surprises there.
One of my ‘talents’ is that before I make a purchase ,especially a bolder one ,I envision how I would style it. I have that skill perfected now but I’m always thrilled when look comes together just how I thought it would.
- Don’t clash prints it’s safer to opt for neutrals.
- If you’re a shorty like me don those heels.
- When wearing something a little bolder I suggest minimal accessories, as they don’t distract from the focal piece.
