My Denim Look Book: #2 – Trouser

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Look #2 in my denim look book is all about one of my go to styles – the Trouser jean.

I love this style because it combines the classic look of dress pants with denim.  They are a great fit for my pear shape because they have a wide leg so they provide ample room for my thighs, the most challenging spot I have when jean shopping.

I like that they give my leg a long straight line.  These ones also happen to be a “curvy fit” so while they fit my hips and thighs, they also fit my waist.

Being a busy professional, I find these are the perfect choice for the office.  On a casual Friday I can throw on a blazer or nice blouse and still look polished for a client meeting.  Or I can wear a simple t-shirt and sweater for a more casual look.

Trouser jeans are a definite trend for this fall but I wear them all the time, in my “style book” they are a classic.

In fact, the ones I am wearing are by Lane Bryant but from a few years ago.  I loved them so much that I bought a few pairs lol, so they have lasted me.  I tend to stick to a dark wash because I like the way it looks on my shape and it is always work appropriate.

I am wearing a size 28 regular and couldn’t ask for a better fit.  Now not to worry, I have provided links to great trouser jeans that are available right now that look almost identical.  I would never leave my loyal readers without options!

I chose to pair these jeans with this gorgeous mandarin collar blouse by Michel Studio for Additionelle.  I struggle to find blouses that fit me – mainly a combination of my chest and large hips so this style is a great alternative for me with no buttons, a ruched back and a high low hem with rounded seams.

I also love the fact that it is a cap sleeve, I get enough coverage for the office but I don’t die of heat, which I normally do.

Choosing this forest colour was a departure from my normal choices but my friend encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone.  I also love the braided detail at the shoulder, it’s an extra special addition that adds to the richness of the piece.

This blouse also comes in a beautiful shade of toffee and a rich charcoal.  I also tucked this blouse in in the front.  This is something I am getting used to.  For so long, I had it engrained in my brain that I shouldn’t tuck shirts in but I have learned that I was certainly wrong!

To accessorize, I added this gold necklace from Penningtons.  I love how it picks up on the richness of the green and frames the collar perfectly.

I then threw on a few bangles, added my new favourite go to flats and a cute contrasting green clutch for an added colour pop.

Overall, I feel this is a put together look that is both business meeting and happy hour worthy.
