STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Big City, Bright Pants


Although I will admit an overlying love for the black skinny jean, any monotone outfit and a preference for muted colours over brighter colours, I can't help but advocate the bright pants trend that is creeping over Melbourne. In the midst of summer, Melbourne Fashionistas/os are painting the city with their pants.

Today's Fashionista wears an eye-catching pair of candy apple skinny jeans (I love these, from NOBODY), a polka-dot top and matching red beads. By keeping the colour palette simple and contrasting the block colour of her pants with a patterned top, she avoids looking like a rainbow. Mixing block colours with bold patterns is the perfect way to dress up any pair of statement pants.

Her comfy flats make this a perfect outfit choice for around campus, shopping or dates out with friends. The similarity of colour between the shoes and her top, her pants and her necklace is what ties her outfit together, creating a fun, chic ensemble.

The chino is a great alternative to jeans in summer as it is lighter fabric and allows more movement. ASOS has a fantastic range of colours that will scream summer and brighten any Fashionistas/os day!
