I felt a little adventurous on my last days on holiday and tried on patterned, loose fitting trousers. I had thought for some reason that they’d look awful on a bigger, curvier woman. The animal print was just up my alley and surprisingly size M seemed big enough for me so I thought why not, might as well give them a go!
Loved them, they are relaxed without looking too relaxed and most definitely draw the attention Â to the bottom half of the body instead of the top which suits my busty identity perfectly.
I had initial doubts that these trousers would look a little too fashionable to be worn at work as too fashion forward is a no for my line of work but can be worked around. In my mind I could see a classic white shirt working with the busy bottom half. Especially a white shirt as it gives a crisp, clear classic twist to the outfit unlike a black shirt would. That would also create a neat, classic look but not as clear as a white shirt.
The trousers have an elasticated band and no zipper so they are extremely comfortable to wear, especially in hot weather. For some reason I just really wanted to wear this outfit on my first day back at work. I do sometimes get those moments when I’ve bough a new wardrobe item that I just have to immediately find a way to wear them somewhere. Like my jumpsuit which I bought from NYC a few weeks ago.
Animal print was also chosen as my casual wear for an afternoon of reading Jonas Jonassons The Illiterate Who Could Count (smart and hilarious as well as his other book I read the previous weekend, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared). It was rather chilly so even though I don’t often wear my turtlenecks anymore, it was a perfect choice for the weather.
