Wearing a strong pattern can be a bit of a challenge. I have a great pair of trousers from Matalan but although I love them I sometimes struggle to style them.
So how do you style a pair of very strongly patterned statement tousers?
The key is if you go patterned on the bottom keep it plain on the top. The shape of these trousers is a cigarette pant shape – slim fitting with a flat waistband. A very 1960’s inspired look.
I co-ordinated the trousers with a cobalt blue shirt and jumper combo plus nude pointy flats for a bit of glamour.
I carried on the slightly 60s vibe with full hair and blue eye make-up.
So would you go for a crazy pattern on your legs like me?

A few weeks back I blogged about how I had fallen in love with quite a few items from M&Co.’s SS15 range (see blog here). I decided to treat myself to a couple of pieces and today I’m wearing a casual look with the ‘LOVE’ jumper I just had to have!
When I saw this jumper I wanted it immediately. A grey marl knit with flecks of pink and a hot pink intarsia logo spelling “love xx” it is perfect for a easy casual outfit. I’m wearing a size 10 here and I’d say its a normal/slightly generous fit. M&Co.’s main range runs 10-20 so if you want a size 8 you need to go to the petite section.
I wore the jumper with dark indigo skinny jeans from New Look and heeled boots from Marks and Spencer. I added a pink vest from Matalan underneath for an extra pop of colour and some co-ordinating lipstick. I also added two necklaces from Claires Accessories for a pretty layered effect.
I think I’m in love with my new jumper! It is lovely quality, with a dense yet soft knit and well worth the money. Look out for the other fabulous M&Co. item I bought in a future blog coming soon.
NEWSFLASH – This is now £14 in the sale… grab it before it sells out!
