Some gals love wearing skirts and dresses – me on the other hand, I love a great pair of pants with a modest trend (well maybe sometimes not so modest). Eye catching bottoms will have you starting out your day with a bang, wherever it may take you. For me, the beauty about wearing pants is that you can move around freely, comfortably, and I mean they’ll never go out of style. The key to wearing bold bottoms is how you mix in all the other elements of your outfit.
If you’re like me, dipping into a the printed pant pool might be a bit difficult. However, like anything else there’s training wheels for it all. You can start out small, maybe a regular pair of jeans with a bold line on the side. The baby steps to getting where you want to be style wise are the most important because there is a fine line between looking stylish and looking clownish.
Funny I should mention clown! These NastyGal printed pants were in my closet for the longest time, I swear. I never felt like I could wear them without, well, looking clownish. However, when I got the courage to wear them, they were like silk against my skin– and the compliments I got on them, endless ! It’s funny how that happens with pieces you wouldn’t normally wear. I paired it with a basic white cropped tee and some sandals. Look finito!
Stars along the side of my jeans are one of my favorite head turners of the moment. Notice the cut on both the pairs of jeans, although pretty much the same, they’re different. I loved these from the moment I picked them out and can’t wait to get back home and wear them again!
These were a little too out of my comfort zone. So much so, that I only wore them twice I believe. But, contrary to what many of you may be thinking : “why post them?” Well you have to try out some trends to see if they’re for you or not. Styling is like experimenting in the kitchen: you add a little salt here and a little pepper there, but you most definitely don’t want it to be bland. Sometimes the combinations just don’t work out !
Oh Vicie! If you’ve followed along for a while, you know my obsession with Vici! They have the most on trend pieces at such affordable prices. Their sizes run pretty much true to size! These pants I’ve worn to the beach, pool, airport, and all around San Diego ! It’s a great pair to have in your closet.
Topping off the blog post I want to mention a lacey white side leg that I love. It is such a special piece because of all the intricate details, but it can be paired with almost anything because of the fresh color. I would stay away from wearing another print on top, but these are definitely a timeless wardrobe item.
