Ok, so this is the first time in a long time that I’ve decided to rock such wide leg trousers – mainly
because I’m so bottom heavy that I feel that the only thing I can wear that will be figure flattering
is skinny jeans or jeggings!! What I learnt? if you find the right pair of wide leg trousers to
suit your body type – it can not only work but even surprise you. I found these Flare Bottom Culottes and
the flare at the bottom kind of balanced out the volume of my unnecessarily wide
hips and butt. I teamed it with the Modes.t Hamptons shirt, because although wide leg trousers
are difficult to wear with long tops, this hi-lo dovetail style shirt was the best compromise I could
hope find without drowning in material. It covered by problem area (my derriere ) whilst showing off the fitted
nature of the top of the culottes.
Pinstripe and Navy – although perfect for a professional environment – can look a
little dull and drab, so to overcome this, I chose a bright but classic Haus Of Hijab nautical scarf to
complete the outfit. And the shoes? well considering I have yet to find the perfect navy shoe (believe
me I’ve been searching for years trying to find the right one to no array) I chose a classic ankle strap court
shoe that I got from New Look, even though its not part of the overall colour scheme – it works.
And even if you’re not too keen on this entire outfit, if there’s anything you can take from this post is this:
you can update your office wardrobe with the right bold scarf – it is literally the key to brightening up your
blacks, greys, whites and navys. Don’t be afraid to wear a statement scarf – it will transform your whole
