Friday night saw Hubby and I attend Desiree’s studio open night. A celebration of all she has achieved and all she has planned. YAY. Hubby was home late so we grabbed some photos on the roof of the building in the car park before heading down. The light was already dropping. I wish the photos worked out better because this outfit, these pants, that necklace deserve the best. But these things happen.

Black and white are one of my all time favourite colour combinations. All black, even better. IT’s just so classic. So simple. So chic. Something that is very this season is printed pants. Wide fit, harem pants {peg pants, genie pants, whatever}. I’ve had these babies at home for a while now and was waiting for the right occasion to wear them. Something fun and funky. Somewhere that was the perfect combination of casual and dressy. I’m glad to have found one.

So in celebrating all things black and white I have somehow made this all about the pants. Ha. As usual, way off topic. So to compensate you for the outlandish deviation from all things monochrome I’ve included my top tips for wearing harem/peg pants below. You’re welcome. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask them. Me and patterned pants are like besties.

My top tips for wearing patterned peg or harem pants are;

  • Get the fit around you waist and stomach right and the rest will follow.
  • Wear with a slim fit top either tucked in or longer towards the hips.
  • Add a wedge if you’re feeling a little short in the leg from all that print action.
  • Or alternatively cuff the bottom of the pant to expose MORE ankle.
  • Feeling a little self-conscious? Add a long line shirt or fitted blazer for a more polished, deliberate look.
  • Start with a simple print or cut and go from there. You’ll be in mad geometric or floral prints before you know it.
