U.K. Street Style: "Fancy Pants"
Follow in the footsteps of the fashion pack and slip into some seriously hip statement trousers this spring. Brave bold prints, buckles, buttons and brocades in skinny and harem styles, bodly go where denim can’t.
But remember, whether worn with killer heels or twee flats, keep the top half of your look simple with tailored blazers and easy-tee combos and let your legs do the talking!
While I'm all for statement pants, they can prove to be tricky to wear. If they're to "blousy, they end up overwhleming your frame and look too big, much like the ones in picture seven. If the prints fall into the "Busy" category, they can not only make the look a little crazy, but add pounds.
I must admit that some of the ladies featured have a well pulled together look; I like pictures one (I love her leggings and that fact that the rest of her outfit is simple.....not overwhelming). Picture two is another good look......her pants are the "centerpiece" which she accented with simple solids and nice wedges. Additional favorites are pictures four (well pulled together and classic), six and eight.
