I’m not usually big on pants, but these wide leg trousers are a game changer. I purchased them online at ASOS a while back because I liked the color and design, but I wasn’t sure how fit would pan out. I prefer dresses and skirts in general because they’re more comfortable, but these bottoms are like fancy pjs you can wear out on the town. My favorite part is definitely the paperbag waist though. It’s high-rise, and you can tie it as tightly or loosely as you please. FYI, they’re great for fall but NOT winter – at least not on the east coast – because they’re fairly lightweight.
For today’s post, I paired my wide leg trousers with a beautiful floral blouse. I love that this feminine top is perfect for work AND play! I could totally see myself wearing this with a bandage skirt and stilettos for date night or GNO. To finish things off, I threw on Valentino-inspired kitten heels and carried my new calf hair crossbody courtesy of Neely & Chloe. They call it “the lady bag,” and I honestly can’t think of a name that’s more fitting. The strap’s removable, and the piece is also available in blue for those of you interested. So, I’m curious guys, what do you think of fancy pants – are they a do or a don’t? If I gifted these babies to you, how would you style them?
