How I Style Black Trousers

I am always looking to update my wardrobe and try out new styles I would not usually opt for but sometimes it can be hard to incorporate new trends with my own personal style. I'm a firm believer that we should all wear what we like and feel comfortable in but sometimes it's fun to experiment with new styles. I thought I would start a new segment on my blog where I will show how I incorporate new trends with my usual girly style.


Today I am showing how I style simple black cigarette trousers effortlessly. Black trousers are a timeless staple and are a current emerging trend. For a girl who will only wear high waisted skirts and dresses this was very different for me and I actually really liked this look. Black trousers are very flattering for all figures and heights.

White Top // Primark
Black Trousers // New Look
Pink Heels // New Look
Black Bag // Calvin Klein 

I love the shape of these trousers, the gathered bottom and the waist being adjustable means you feel as though you're wearing PJ's but of course look dressy. To give this outfit a hint of my personal style I put this cute pink bomber jacket over my shoulders and matched it with these simple pink heels. Heels with any trousers instantly takes them from casual to dressy. Even though I am being a bit experimental I decided to just wear a chiffon white top to bring everything together. I wasn't wearing my usual skirts but I still felt girly and within my usual style.

I think it's great to try different styles from time to time! How would you rock black trousers?
