Floral Pants 2 Ways

I'm home sick at the moment so am finally getting around to posting these photos from a while ago.

There's a misconception that bright print pieces can't be worn multiple ways or achieve different looks. Jo from iCurvy has demonstrated the opposite of this in her post here. I wanted to show you these floral pants from ASOS in two ways. By simply changing the colour of the t-shirt, throwing on a different blazer/shrug and changing your accessories you can refresh the look and achieve your money's worth on one piece.

This first look uses neutral beige and black with simple earrings to achieve a more conservative look, dressing up these fun pants and making them "meeting-appropriate". I'm terrible at remembering to grab my bag when I take my photos! However this look I paired with a classic black leather tote.

Pants: ASOS Curve
T-shirt: ASOS Curve
Blazer: Marks and Spencer thrifted from Amara at A+ Market
Shoes: Wittner

This second look is a lot brighter and fresh and makes me think of spring. It's also appropriate to take from work to dinner. I absolutely fell in love with this vintage kimono shrug; it's very me and emphasises the lighter colours in the pants brightening the whole ensemble. For the weekend I'd pair this look with my tan satchel and sandals.

Pants: ASOS Curve

T-shirt: ASOS Curve
Kimono shrug/blazer: Thrifted from Lost and Found Market
Shoes: Wittner

With simple tees and thrifted blazers I am definitely making the most of my purchase!

  1. Great post. The outfits are really different with only a small change.
    Thanks for the shout out again, too!
