Stirrup trousers and oversized tops as seen on Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini. A look that’s been both pinned on my boards and permanently in my mind since I saw it earlier this year and it’s only in the last month that I have finally found an affordable pair that were just what I was after. My pair are from H&M but unfortunately aren’t available online, you can see them on my Instagram here and have a hunt for them in store. Alternatively the same pair are online in plain black and I’ve also found a check pair on sale in Mango, as shown above.
This for me is the perfect outfit for the festivities; no sparkles, frills or sequins necessary. Dressed up with a pair of mules, a structured shirt and lashings of gold jewellery, or dressed down with loafers and an oversized jumper, this is a comfortable look that can easily be transformed depending on your requirements and the occasion. After finishing up in the office this week I don’t plan on wearing anything too formal until at least the middle of next week, even better of course if I can drag it out until the 3rd of January when I will be forced out of my pyjamas and back into reality. But these trousers help to feel a little bit put together while maintaining optimum comfort levels- absolutely necessary for Christmas day, of course.
Happy Christmas one and all, I hope it’s a special one for everyone.
