Do I even need to continue?
Just kidding. I need to gush!
Luckily for us, wide leg, roomy trousers are still “on trend” as we look into spring 2016 lines. This smart look is one of my all time favorites. The banded waist is slimming and the clean lines make for an effortlessly stylish silhouette. These trousers in particular are perfectly patterned with bold stripes, which you’ll also be seeing a lot more of this spring.
While this pair by 1.State is chic enough to tuck in a billowy blouse and achieve a sophisticated look, they’re soft and airy enough to pair with a light tank and sandals for your next beachfront getaway. Which means I’ll be in these next week, hula’ing my way around Maui. They run true to size but if you’re on the petite side, you may want to order down and get your tailor ready. I’m 5’7 to give you perspective on where the length hits.
As for my top, I love this tie neck blouse to balance out the masculine stripe of the pant. This is a blouse I know I can reach for when I need to add a feminine touch to my ensemble.
As always, I’ve linked my top and pant details, plus several alternatives, below. I particularly love this gorgeous trouser (also striped) paired with this top or this one if you’re splurging. Another combination I love would be any of these pants (currently 50% off, in 3 colors) with this bold blouse.
I’d love to hear what spring trends you’re looking forward to trying! Feel free to comment or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
