In the summer of 2008, my mom bought me a pair of floral appliqued denim from The Wearhouse Camel Shop and Lord knows how much I wore those pants throughout that summer. I wore them so much that my mom decided to give them away the next year, simply because she feared that I probably wouldn’t adorn another pair of denim if she didn’t intervene. Ha-ha. Lucky for me, the appliques are back after all these years and I’m more than willing to lap up this trend in every way.
As much as we love the bodycon dresses, the fitted tube tops, the figure-hugging jeggings; we are creatures of comfort and comfort is what we keep returning to. And nothing says comfort like a pair of joggers and a roomy top. I chose an off-shoulder top in a safe color, with detailing in the form of the billowy sleeves (perfect for the summer) and the lace at the ends. The intention was to keep the attention on the appliqued pants without them outshining the top completely. The appliqued-joggers are comfortable enough to lounge in all day and trendy enough to be worn for a night out if you’re confident enough to grab some eyeballs of course.
P.S. I’ve added a pair of clear glasses to build a dash of quirk to the look.
I’m raving about ‘Balance’ in most of my outfit posts and this one is no exception, he-he. The laidback and roomy nature of the top and the pants are balanced with some high heels in a muted tone. The airy vibe of the top portrays that you’re a laid back individual who also pays attention to the details. The pants will help you come off as a playful soul and will channel the 90’s child in you. The high heels will help exude the fact that: a) You value yourself highly; b) You’re not somebody to be messed with, and c) You can pull all this off like a lady!
What a beautiful concoction of different portrayals in one single outfit!
