We have all seen this particular trend floating around this fashion world for quite a while now and I had my eyes on it ever since. Let’s just say all this time I couldn’t find this particular one that would suit my dwarf shaped body ( I am literally so short ). Whenever I go shopping ( I mean go to the website to online shop ) I always hesitate to buy jeans or pants cause they are either too long for my short legs or they just won’t fit me in right places. But, as a adventurous person ( only when it comes to fashion ) that I am, I decided to call it an end to this hesitation and bought a frill hem trousers from Missguided.
I have always loved frills and ruffels on tops and dresses and when they trasnferred them into pants (cause anything is possible in fashion world anyway) I thought why not? I LOVE LOVE this trend cause I think its very effortless and chic at the same time. It is also very easy to style and you can both dress it up and down. When I say effortless, I mean I didn’t have to shave my legs to wear this (PHEW!) and also you just have to throw it on with a statement top and a pair of heels and you are good to go. What I loved about this particular trousers is that it had an elastic band and it was from petite section. That means that it fit my food tummy very perfectly and didn’t accentuate the tummy fat, but rather tried to camouflage it a little. Also, it fit my short legs perfectly showing just enough skin. I paired this pants with a floral pattern off the shoulder top with bell sleeves, a pair of nude heels and a nude cross body bag. The pattern in this top stood out the most which helped in contrasting plain black pattern of the trousers. Also, the bell sleeve in the top matched pretty well with the frilly hems. Also, do I even have to mention it ? Anything off shoulder is just too chic right now. They say your collar bones is like a new cleavage (although I don’t have one – collarbones I mean). However, I feel like off shoulder tops shows just enough skin with maintaing that elegant look. Also, it’s just one of those pieces which are so easy to throw on and call it a look, especially during spring/summer time. I took this outfit look for my Work Christmas Party (which was awesome btw). I didn’t want to opt for a dress which I always have and I also like challenging my fashion sense from time to time. But, I think this outfit just served the right amount of justice. You can totally rock this pants as an office wear and take my word that the HR Department will definitely approve it. It has just the right amoung of serious and sassy’ ness combined together. Which is why it is so easy to pair this trend depending on your mood.
We had this work party at the Sydney’s famous Luna Park. I have been to this place twice now and trust me when I tell you it just serves the right amount of back drop to your instagram photos. It lies just near the Harbour Bridge and you can also see Opera House from this spot. Having a Harbour Bridge or a blue calm sea as a back drop in your photos is already INSTAWORTHY. However, once you get inside the Luna Park (entrance is free btw), you can see a lot of colorful buildings and so many fun activities such as merry go around and ferris wheel. Having those fun activities as a back drop for you photos will let you have this INSTAWORTHY picture. (Also, a lot of games/activities there have lights and colorful patterns in them which just serves as cherry on top). Luna Park is located at 1 Olympic Dr, Milsons Point and I hope you have a lot of fun taking pictures there.
