I'll be honest, I really wasn't sure about the whole printed, slightly loose 'n' baggy trouser hype that landed this season. I assumed they'd swamp my more petite figure, making me look even shorter than normal, and I totally was just not feeling brave enough for a full length of bottom boldness. However, as the weeks passed and I spied more and more people unconditionally pulling them off, my temptation to at least try on a pair began to grow. When I spotted this pair in Primark for a mere £7, I just could not resist. And that is the moment I realised my first judgements on these kinda beautiful trousers were completely and utterly, absolutely, wrong.
I opted for this monochromatic pair, being not quite courageous enough for the business of full colour, allowing the abstract print to take centre stage. I have a love for all things abstract and I love the fun and quirky factor of this loud print.
I decided to team these trousers with my crochet aztec tee. The thinking behind this being that, despite the clashing of the two prints, the all-white shade caused the aztec print to appear a whole lot more subtly as it blended with the white of the trousers, resulting in not so much of a battle for attention between the prints of the trousers and the tee - the trousers obviously being the victor.
So, all in all, I could not be happier with these printed trousers, They're so uber comfortable and their light feel permits them a perfect summer staple when there's still that lingering cool breeze in the air. Also, a big thumbs up to the pet cat and rabbit who could not help but have a little nose whilst we took these photos!
