How To Style Printed Trousers
I bought these crazy pants a few months ago when thoughts of spring filled my mind.
You may remember them from my gingham dress posts.
This type of bold printed pants create confusion for the eye…no one knows what is concave or convex anymore.
Say hello to my visually slimming friends!
I’ve worn them quite a bit because; A) they are stretchy like yoga pants and B) they can be pulled on.
No zippers, snaps or buttons to fiddle with!
I’m not sure why that impresses me so much but it does.
This makes them the ideal pants to wear thrifting. Speedy on, speedy off.
Although this type of short cropped trousers do look better with heels they aren’t necessary.
I can wear these crazy pants to visit my chiropractor.
I have a pair of these light pink Cole Haan brogues that I wear when I go to the chiropractor. She wouldn’t be happy if I showed up in heels.
When you start making your clothing choices dependant upon the Dr.’s appointment you have that day you know you are getting old.
Sad but true.
My photos look quite blurry. I need to learn how to adjust the setting on my camera or stand still longer. I swear it isn’t the “Martha Stewart” blur lens.
I could have styled this with any of the colours in the pants or gone with a bold solid colour on top but I love the idea of adding extra visual texture and that is why I chose stripes in the two outfits above. The outfit below I’m wearing sequins. They are matte so it is difficult to see the sequins.
I do have to mention the little blue handbag I bought at TJ Maxx a couple months ago the same day I bought the pants.
I’ve been searching for a round vintage handbag for about two years now and never came across one that was the right size or weight. This one is the ideal size for me and my fibromyalgia and it has a cross body shoulder strap which makes it darn near close to perfect for me. I don’t own very much pastel in my closet and yet I seem to use this baby blue bag all the time. It originally came with a big ugly bow on the front which I immediately removed.
I love it so much I went back and bought the same one in a different colour, orange.
As much as I adore my vintage handbags they simply aren’t as practical as this contemporary one.
Are you a fan of wearing patterned pants? Do you own any trousers you can pull on other than yoga pants?
