Owning and wearing printed pants was probably something I never thought I’d do.
But it’s been more than two years since I had to eat my fashion words because the minute I tried this trend that doesn’t seem to be disappearing any time soon, I was hooked.
Making pants your statement piece in an outfit leaves you open to call on your wardrobe basics for the rest. Your outfit immediately has a focal point.
The best bit?
More often than not the printed pant is a super comfy design as well. So you get to wear the equivalent of tracky pants outside the house and no-one can call you on it.
Well, except for Mr SY. In the beginning he wasn’t so much of a fan but I think I’ve managed to turn his opinion around. Either that or he’s just given up expressing it. Well, it is footy season.
This week, it warmed the cockles of my printed pants collection to see so many of you rocking them for your everyday style.
Mostly you favoured the black and white printed pant – and if you’re keen to try this trend but don’t know where to start, this is where you do start.
What you add on top is as easy as a black or white tee … or get wild with a block colour. Here’s a link to my blog archives featuring the printed pant.
The thing here is to have fun with it. Look for a style that suits your shape and work your pants back with a top that also works best for your shape. I’m a big fan of the half tuck of a top into this style of pants.
SY #everydaystyle (the outfit you liked the most)
I first blogged about this dress in January. It’s light and lovely to wear and was perfect for a social morning out with girlfriends.
The shift style is one of my go-to styles of frocks as it skims my waist and hips but still offers some shape. Colour-wise, I love a splash of pink. I do.
It was clearly a printed-pants week. This pleases me.
I’m a Big Girl Now: Looking for plus-size style inspiration? I’m a big fan of this blog. This Sydney mum and nana (I can’t believe that!) shows that style really doesn’t come with a use-by-date and is not dictated by what size we are.
Glamour Mama: Pre-babies, Kate worked in the fashion industry for 20 years – that definitely shows. She’s not afraid to wear sequins in the sandpit and is an inspiration for any mum trying to find their way through their new-found style playground.
Want to join in? Simply upload a photo of yourself showing your everyday style to Instagram or Facebook, use the #everydaystyle and tag @stylingyou so I can find you. Don’t feel you have to post every day. Post when you can. For consideration in my outfit of the week round up, I look first for clear, in-focus photos without text or borders on them. These work in best with the montage layout.
