Fashion Alert!

Legs at centre stage

For those of you that are brave with your style the statement trouser is a must at the moment and a favourite amongst celebrities. The catching and somewhat daring statement trouser has been pictured across the catwalk from Fendi to D&G and has rapidly become popular in high street clothing stores. In particular, the floral print trouser has proved a hit with style icons such as Olivia Palermo, Whitney Port and Rihanna but there are a great range of prints and styles out there. Below are a few of my own favourite picks from the high street that are on trend and easily wearable allowing those that are less brave to accomplish this seasons hottest trend.


My first selection is from River Island, these are leggings with a tribal type print. I love the rich colours and although the pattern is bold is isn’t garish. In addition, the vertical stripes in the pattern will actually make your legs appear slimmer which is always a bonus. These leggings cost £22.00 and would look great teamed with a simple burgundy vest like the one pictured below, make sure you keep your top-half quite simple as the leggings do the talking. This outfit could be worn at night with a pair of chunky wedges or  you  could make this a daytime look with a pair of gladiator sandals. Finally, finish the look with some chunky bangles in keeping with the tribal feel of the leggings.
RIVER ISLAND yellow print jacquard leggings £22.00
RIVER ISLAND dark red aztec texture vest £15.00

NEW LOOK Gold Metallic Tribal Bangle Set £8.99

RIVER ISLAND black beaded sandals £35.00
RIVER ISLAND white strappy wedges £55.00


My second look is a cute more formal trouser from Topshop priced at £38.00. These trousers are extremely versatile and could be worn to a formal event, on date or when having a few drinks with friends. They are ankle length and tailored in a raspberry colour with all over flocked heart print, as seen on Cheryl Cole. These would team perfectly with a black blouse as pictured below. To complete the look wear with a medium healed pointy court shoe and accessorise with a simple black clutch for a sophisticated finish.
