Bold Bottoms

Lately, I have been a huge fan of very bold patterns on pants. You saw me sport my camo pants in a previous blog, which I wear religiously. I love pants with a very defined pattern because it’s an easy way to sport a cute outfit and be adventurous!

Trust me, if people are looking at your bold pants, it is a good thing. I am wearing my “artsy” skinny toothpicks that cut off right at the ankle. The reason I say they are artsy is because it looks as though someone painted water colors on my denim. There are multiple designs and patterns, which grace the front and back of my bottoms. I then paired them with an interesting top combo. Peplums are one of my favorite trends, however most of mine are for the summer. What’s a girl to do? I wore my cream, peplum shirt with a zip-up back and layered a royal blue crop sweater over it. The two flow perfectly on my body and are just the right amount of layering to keep me warm. The peplum hem even allows the shirt to have a little shape as it poofs out a bit! I threw on a long necklace (mine has a key) and some short, biker boots with spike detailing.

This outfit took me only five minutes to pick out, and it’s probably one of my favorites so far. I love how the pants are the main statement piece. I feel like nowadays people always focus on wearing a bold top or accessory to make an outfit pop. But with a bold set of bottoms, you can add a little pop to your outfit without doing as everyone else does!

I know some people may be concerned about how the pattern will make them look. Trust me, I completely understand. I am a girl with hips and butt and would always shy away from a patterned pair of pants. I’ve learned that it all depends on the bold pair that you choose. If you are one who is worried about it making you look larger, try wearing a solid color that pops or even a very subtle and simple pattern. It doesn’t have to be over the top, but just enough to be the main focus in your outfit!

So try something new, and wear a bold bottom! You could be surprised at how one pattern may change your life and wardrobe!
