Find of the week

Posted by Megan on May 3, 2011

I am very excited to share this week’s find with you.

These “Red Persian Floral Print Wide Leg Trousers” from Topshop (£45) are a MUST for your Summer wardobe and will flatter most body shapes. They tick boxes for the maxi trend, boho-chic and floral trend … how clever are they!? Mine are already hanging in my cupboard!

To get the most out of this gorgeous shape for summer here are some tips for each body shape:

If you lack a little height, keep them long in length and wear to the ground with high nude wedges or sandals to create the illusion of extra leg length.

If you are athletic, wear a loose t-shirt / vest tucked in (and then pulled out a little) so that you create the illusion of curves.

If you are pear shaped, buy up a size if you need to and try to balance out your shoulders by wearing a halter-neck plain white or cream top or add a denim jacket to give structure to your shoulders.

If you suffer from a larger tummy than you would like, don’t be afraid of control underwear and a loose fitting top that stops just under your tummy but shows your slim hips and the hint of lovely legs under the soft fabric of these trousers! Flat-fronted, wide-legged trousers are your friend … try these now!

For maximum versatility, why not keep these long for heels and add some popper studs to allow you to shorten slightly when you want to wear with flats! If you are not confident with a needle and cotton, any tailor can do this for you and it will be a low-cost alteration!
