Style: How to wear paperbag-waist pants...

Hello lovelies!

I've recently been feeling so uninspired by my wardrobe so this week for the first time in an age, I decided to shop the high-street.  I'd say that normally I'm an investment piece shopper and I tend to wear the same pieces mixed up in a variety ways.  So I thought today I would show you what I bought and hopefully give you some inspiration of how to wear one of Spring/Summer's trends in two ways!  So, the piece I'm looking at is paperbag-waist pants.

Topshop £36, lots still available at time of posting!

I fell in love with these beauties this week and had to have them, but there are lots of this style available at the moment.  I love the high waistline of paperbag-waist pants; they're very flattering even if you're vertically challenged like me!  For my first look, I styled them more formally for a fashion event I attended this week (more on this in my next post, it was very exciting!).

Outfit 1
What I wore:
Jacket: Archive By Alexa for Marks and Spencer (old)
Venti t-shirt: River Island, £18 (link)
Pants: Topshop (linked above)
Shoes: Primark, £6 (new)
Bag: Katie Loxton, monogrammed (link)

Paperbag-waist pants are incredibly versatile, but I'd suggest that you let them be the statement piece of your outfit, and make sure you're showing off the beautiful waistline by tucking in whichever t-shirt you chose.  I wanted neutrals (and I adore navy!) so that I could wear a statement lipstick, but I think most coloured shirts and t-shirts would go with these pants; I'd stay away from patterns though.  Shout out to Primark for these amazing flats-super-cute and super-comfortable!  Equally, a heel with a pointed-toe would look really stylish for a more formal/evening look!

Today, I wanted to wear the pants again but this time more casually, so I went for this look...

Outfit 2
What I wore:
T-shirt: River Island, £18 (link)
Pants: Topshop, as before
Shoes: Converse, old
Bracelet: Marc Jacobs, old

When I'm going to be rushing around and working a lot, I like to be a bit more casual, so I opted for a dressed-down look so I could wear my trusty (and slightly battered!) Converse.  Again, you can be quite versatile with your t-shirt choices, but I love navy and anything with a bumblebee!!

If you don't think this is a trend for you, I'd definitely say experiment! There are lots of styles and leg-lengths around at the moment, and a million colour palettes; I hope they're are here to stay!

I even liked them with my military jacket!!

Until next time,
