Inspiration for this post directly stems from my new work location at the Grazia India HQ for the Grazia Young Fashion Awards. The fact that it is an hour-long journey from home, and could at times require random travel to other parts of town, calls for comfortable and chic clothing and nothing could spell it better than statement trousers.
Statement trousers break all boundaries of imagination and creativity. They make going little crazy feel so normal. There are printed trousers, harem pants with various shapes and cuts, some wide legged, some skinny with bright colors, geometrical prints, some got tribal, and Aztec prints. Even the loud animal prints are doing the rounds of high street stores.
This is one trend where there are absolutely no rules, no norms. Crazier, the better. Let your imagination run wild. Pair harems with a blazer and booties for a touch of funk, wear printed skinny trousers with converse for a playful, yet girly look.
Celebrities are not far from this trend. As seen below, Blake Lively and Elle Macpherson are rocking printed and metallic statement trousers, respectively.
My personal favorites in this trend are bright wide legged trousers that you can team with either contrasting color block tops for a casual look or printed crops for a more formal look. I also dig floral and animal prints. Metallic colors have not been on my usual picks list, nevertheless I find myself lusting after the gold and silver colors, especially for a night out and when I am not ready for a little number.
This is an awesome trend for everyone who has been looking to experiment with different colors, designs, shapes and prints. There is no right or wrong, hence no room for error. Go wild with your imagination; as far as you can carry off the trend with confidence, you will be a winner all the way!
