Lady in red! Where have I heard that statement before? Sometimes we can get so caught up in not wanting to wear a bright top and a pair of bright trousers of the same colour. It’s easy to think that you will end up walking around the streets looking like a clown. That doesn’t have to be the case, particularly if you match them correctly.
Usually when people pair items of clothing together, they wear a pair of trousers with a matching jacket and a different coloured top to even it all out. I do that also, but I don’t make a habit of it. When it comes to fashion, I find habits to be a bit boring. I love to mix up my outfits and stand out from the crowd. I’m not one for wearing what everyone else is wearing.
Once you find your unique style, stick to it and adapt it as fashion grows and develops. It is also great to try something out of the norm, something you might not wear, a statement piece that you wouldn’t look twice at, as that outfit might fit you better than anyone else in the room.
I chose to wear a strawberry peplum top with a red frill zip palazzo trousers. Palazzo trousers are definitely on trend right now and a lot of the major high street brands have incorporated these bottoms into their collections.
I love these trousers as they have a slight frill at the bottom. It was important to me that they weren’t too frilly as that isn’t my style.
The peplum top also has frills at the bottom, thus it gives the outfit a slightly symmetric look.
I love these heels. Love, love, love. They are suede and have a cute bow on them, plus they are block heels so which gives the outfit a different look. As my entire outfit is bright red, the grey heels really stands out. The perfect trousers for the perfect heels.
