The Wide-Leg Trouser Appeal

One of autumn/winter’s hottest trends are wide-leg trousers, they have become a recurring style trend through out the numerous decades of the fashion world. There’s something really cool and effortless about wide leg trousers, it has established itself as a revolutionary concept for many fashion designers.Zara wide leg check trousersThe androgynous, yet casual, appearance has allowed designers to blur the line between masculine feminine fashion modes. I draw a lot of inspiration from runway shows and I also like to find the feminine in a masculine silhouettes. The wide leg trousers makes it’s appearance every fashion season (Spring/Summer, Autumn/Winter as well as Reort) and the frequent reinvention has established them as a timeless piece in fashion. May the ever so stylish silhouette forever remain on-trend. Can I get an ‘Amen’?!

I bought this pair a couple of years ago from Zara, and they are still as cool as they were back then. I tend to stay away from garments that skim the floor, but I’ve made an exception with wide legged trousers, that’s the beauty of them.

Just remember, if you are going to style a pair, it’s best not to totally cover your waist or you might oversize yourself. Alternatively, if you aren’t one for baring the midriff, keep your top tucked in like I did here. I mean, I did play with the silhouette in another post here, where I did not have my shirt tucked. It’s much more flattering if the waistband cuts at your smallest point, the trousers will flatter and lengthen your legs.

Saying ‘Hi’ to Spring

by

Trans-seasonal outfits could be tricky for many, the inability to make a decision on what to wear; maybe a thicker jacket, add more layers, taking into consideration the length of time spent outdoors etc… all that goes through ones mind before finally deciding on what to wear.

Here is a transitional casual spring look that will remain stylish and fashionable through many seasons. I find that roll neck/ turtleneck tops either heavy or light, are obviously stylish and easy to wear during the in-between seasons. Once the neck is covered, you are half way there with keeping the cold away.

Fashion Inspirations: How to Be A Lady

by

Another fashion inspiration from the fashion pages of Glamour Magazine UK. I am totally inspired by the styling and pieces selected by Glamour’s fashion editor Emer Dewar. The 50’s is said to be one of the most stylish decades and I’m a big fan of the glamour, chicness and ladylike silhouettes from the 50’s.

Getting it ‘White’

by

How can I say this? I’m obsessed with everything white at the moment – I’m talking about fashion. Coming from a girl who would hardly ever wear white to a girl who could wear white all the time if possible. The good thing is, colours look good on me (lucky girl eh?), so I’ve happily embraced wearing many other colours, but I must confess I feel so chic and confident in white. I never thought I would be saying this a few years ago, but here I am screaming ‘ALL WHITE EVERYTHING’, well apart from the shoes and earrings :P.

P.S It’s a new hair-dition! I brought back the red hair (see previous posts) redder and riskier! What say ye? Do you like this new hairpisode?

All white outfit.
