I often nose over my ‘garden walls’ on Chictopia to see if the grass and style is greener on the other side. While I love mixing together trends on my own accord, I continue to find inspiration from other bloggers.
This Spring I’ve breathed sun silked air into my choice of trousers, parachuting oversized pinstripes and golfing trousers out of military boots. I love the infusion of tartan punk attitude with bohemian flare, and Vivienne Westwood personifies this colourful angst. The way she transforms tailored ‘business’ trousers into asymmetric baggy jigsaws is inspired, with silk materials that ripple and contort to the eye. The punk vibe is pinstriped throughout the veins of her collections, but there’s a subtle taste and flavour of other trends that always make her relevant. Denim is made into a harem pant delight, and ice greys offer sophistication to daring outfits.
With harem pants on my mind, I’m already anticipating the car boot sale on Sunday that I religiously attend. There’s daydream hope that I’ll come across some parachuting drop crotch trousers that were probably stitched together with a lazy day intention, but just need a little revamping to become a piece of ‘high street’ Westwood!
