Printed pants

Ran to a S/S 12 preview at Topshop today (pics to follow) and took street style pictures afterwards. 

Here’s what I wore to run around..

Harem pants: Barcelona Spain. Puff sleeve leather jacket: Juicy Couture (saw this and this alternative). Bowler Hat: H&M (found one here).  Flats: Zara (love these by SM in beige just dye them black or spotted). Shades: Ray Ban. Bag: Alexander Wang
I got these printed harems while in Barcelona Spain recently. I’ve been after a pair like this for a very long time. Whenever I stop someone wearing similar they always said theirs was from overseas and so, it seems are mine too!
Trousers have undergone a transformation of sorts and it’s about time. They’ve gone from the ubiquitous office trouser to printed fluid wide legs, colour blocked pyjama inspired to drop crotch sweat pants (also shown on the street style blog).  Trick is to get a loose fabric to feel like your wearing a long maxi skirt.  As the temperature drops, add knit leggings under and slouchy cable knits or skinny polo necks on top.
The boho print sold me and they were so cheap I wish I bought another pair in a different colour!  If anyone from Barcelona is reading this let me know and I’ll see if I can twist your arm via Paypal to pick me up one more pair please?

    I’d probably give you the side eye on the street if I saw you in real life but in pictures it looks so phresh!

  7. Crystal says:

    Those pants are beast! I love it paired with the black top and leather jacket! Imagine the eye I would get wearing that outfit out here in Podunk, Texas! LOL

  8. Hillary says:

    Wow! Those are out of control! I want you to get me some from Barcelona too! You look as pretty as a peacock, Karen, and that’s really pretty. 😉

  9. Sing says:

    I like the pants, very fun and different.

  10. Asia says:

    Wow I would never wear harem pants but I swear you worked the heck out of these!! I am flabbergasted by how awesome you look in them. Sometimes I wish I lived somewhere not rural because you can make the craziest fashion choices and get away with them in more fashion forward areas i.e. New York.

    Luvvleighb – interesting that the guys liked them you’d think they wouldn’t actually. I know the majority of girls wouldn’t dig them but I do – all that matters!
