Outfit Of The Week: The Patterned Trousers

Monday, May 25, 2015










I know, I mean ME wearing patterns. What is happening. Something other than just an all black outfit for once. Shock. Even though the trousers are predominately black and only broken up by white lines it's still a pattern!

This was an impromptu and definitely an impulse buy that I committed last week and I'm so glad I picked them up. I had in mind to wear these as a potential comfy alternative to jeans to wear on the plane when I fly to Spain (on my own, oh my gawwd) in the beginning of June (so soon oh my gawwd).

I'd say they're the sort of harem/hareem (however you spell it) style as they're cuffed at the back of the ankle and have a stretchy waist. Yes they're comfy, yes they'll probably go with everything and yes they were from Primark (I know, what a shocker) but here's the best bit, THEY HAVE POCKETS. Two beautiful pockets situated either side of the hips and I'm so glad my prayers have been answered. Trousers that do not have pockets are trousers that are not worth buying and should be put back on the rail - no matter how sassy you look in them (trust me you'll thank me later). Pockets are the gift from the gods. When trousers have them (especially when you weren't expecting them to) it's a sign to buy. You probably can't get away with putting your phone in these ones - unless you're happy to have one side hanging lower than the other - but for putting your hands in (you know, to look mega cool and hip) these are perfect. 

You can slut drop in these, you can lunge in these, you can do just about anything in these trousers (within reason of course). I decided to pair these with a black fine knit jumper, my Birkenstock dupes and a slouchy tote bag for a look which screams cool and comfy (cos you know who doesn't want to be cool and comfy). If you're in the market for some casual yet stylish trousers which can easily be dressed up or down, then these are for you. An absolute steal from Primark at £8, head on down to your nearest before they're gone.

Oh, and just a side note. Thanks to my neighbour for having a sweet brick wall that's perfect for an ootd shoot backdrop. Oh and also thanks to my bro for being my photographer.
