The cover of glossy fashion magazines
Continually ask about our shape
Whilst wondering about their obsession
My subconscious replies
Or shall I say screams the name of a fruit
The big bottom beauty (PEAR)
But allow me to elaborate before you disappear with the answer
I bruise as easily as apples
In certain angles, an hourglass appears
It comes down to perception
Changing depending on the situation
Always reaching for my go-to items
Comfortable in pants, midi skirts and bardot tops
Stylists advise based on body type
Don’t wear prints or bold coloursThey’ll draw attention
But rules are meant to be broken
The sassy diva comes out to play
Clearly showing the plan of action
We’ll rock it with confidence, what could they possibly say?
My body, my choice – the motto of the day
Defying the rules
Reaching for bold colours
An ode to red pants
The spontaneous purchase that captured my heart
Hugging every curve perfectly
This is an open letter to my summer style staple.
Have you ever spontaneously bought a pair of pants and instantly fell in love? The fit, how it lays upon your curves and even the bright colour makes you happy. It seems anytime I go out I reach for my trusty red pants, I think it’s official, I’m obsessed with this purchase. A pair of red sports luxe pants, the proof is scattered on my blog, Instagram and Twitter. As I was scrolling through pages upon pages of clothing on LOTD, they stood out to me. Looking cute online, great value for money but one question came to mind. Will I be able to make them work?
Styling is self-expression. A message to the world, the people you pass on the street and the friends you’re off to meet. One thing you need to be certain about is your body. Know what works, what you should avoid and what makes you feel beautiful. High-waist pants work for my body type and insecurities. You’ll never catch me in clothing that casually sits on the hips. High-waist clothing covers the midriff, shapes the bottom and soft material makes anyone feel comfortable.
There are various ways to style these statement pants, either demand attention or keep it casual. Colour matching works well, add a red crop jumper, bodysuit or bardot top and a pair of black heels. The simplicity will ooze off duty model, you’ll feel fabulous as your strut down the street. For a laid-back city girl aesthetic, swap the heels for trainers, and stick to a monochrome theme with a striped top. My confessions are over, now the spotlight is on you. What item do you find yourself reaching for regularly?
