I don’t own enough shorts, or at least not culotte shorts with a funky print on it. When I was younger, I loved culottes and had a pair for Primary School. I don’t know why but I loved them! I must’ve been because I could get away with the length being just above the knee. As a stand alone piece, I don’t think I would have picked these black and white tribal print shorts if I saw them on shop railings but as it was ASOS, I got to see it how it was styled on a pretty model and I thought “yeah, I can make these shorts work for me!”. They’re quite a nice pair to have because I reckon they will become a staple piece throughout the year, regardless to what season it is. That’s pretty good going for a pair of shorts that cost £15.00!
As you saw from yesterday’s blog post, I have previewed the ways I have styled this as part of ASOS S/S 14 Trend Challenge. My next blog post from this series will be on Sunday but this first look is casual chic, a relaxed informal, monochrome look. Monochrome is another S/S 14 trend, but I feel kind of silly saying that to you because it’s only black and white…. that’s always going to be ~in style~, it ain’t going no where! It’s not exactly groundbreaking, but perhaps I’ve not explored or pushed myself out of my comfort zone with this simple trend. It can be quite avant-garde but avant-garde I am not! Best to stick to what I know best and say true to my own style! This type of outfit is perfect day-wear for all kinds of occasions; meeting friends for lunch, cinema dates, day out, shopping, that kind of thing. It is a very comfy outfit thanks to the elasticated waist and a loose-fit t-shirt. I have layered up with a cardigan and a leather jacket, accessorised with some bracelets and my brand new name necklace from Punky Pins. I am a huge fan of Sex And The City and although I have a few name necklaces, I didn’t have a gold one that is in the style of Carrie Bradshaw until now! Life. Made!
