It’s finally March which to me means it’s finally spring. I’m not a cold weather person. Growing up in Moscow, I’ve had my fill of bad weather and I’m not too interested in re-living those below zero winter days. I love the feeling of sunshine warming up my skin, the never ending daylight, and the warm weather trends.
Speaking of spring trends there are two that are my current favorites, bell sleeves and wide leg pants. Specifically I love pairing the two trends together. This pair of chambray trousers is just one of 3 wide leg pants that I’ve acquired in the last week. Part of my sartorial philosophy is to focus on finding styles that I like that work for my body type. Since I started this blog 8 years ago I have worn countless pairs of palazzo and wide leg trousers in my posts regardless of whether or not they were on trend. I find them to be flattering for my tall frame, plus they look great with crop tops which is another one of my favorite “trends”. The trick to pulling off this style of pants is to keep an eye on proportions especially if you’re petite. Once you figure out what works best for you, you’d be surprised at just how easy this type of pant is to style. I like to wear mine with 70’s style tight sweaters, soft tees, crop tops, and cropped jackets. For this outfit I paired my trousers with a cropped knit sweater for a transitional look with a 70’s vibe.
P.S. Don’t forget to shop the Shopbop sale, you can get a discount on both the pants and sweater I’m wearing.
