There are those pieces of clothing that are either right or very very wrong. And shimmering pants are definitely among those! But, since these days I'm on a constant hunt for less-than-boring stretchy pants (there are only so many ways to pimp your leggings), I was pretty psyched when I came across this gorgeous pale green pair of shimmering pants at Enes. And after testing out and approving the stretchy waistband, I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to style them, as long as you keep these little tips in mind...
1 / A SOFT COLOUR TONE IS YOUR BUDDY
The no. 1 trick for getting your hands on the right version of shimmering pants is going with a soft colouring scheme, such as pastel green, blush pink or cream shades. Though it may seem tempting, stay clear from anything in the realm of hot red and flashy pink, as they will transform an otherwise classy piece into trash (sometimes you just have to say it as it is, right?).
2 / A SLOUCHY OVERSIZED SWEATER TOO
The first thing I said when I tried on this outfit was: OMG, it makes my bump disappear! Not that I don't like my little belly, but sometimes it's just nice to feel 'normal' again. And the piece that was responsible for this? A simple slouchy sweater, that just about covered my bump. An added bonus of the slouchiness is the fact that the elastic waist band doesn't show through the sweater (always a no-no). And needless to say it was blissfully cosy to wear. Definitely a staple in my closet right now!
3 / PAIR WITH CASUAL NEUTRALS
While it's not necessarily a fashion disaster, I personally don't like to pair shimmering pants with heels, because it's already a pretty feminine & preppy piece on itself. I much rather keep it casual with white chunky sneakers! As for the other pieces (my coat and bag), I focused on neutral shades too, as well as structured sophisticated cuts. See how easy it is to style these gleaming trousers? And I didn't even get into how happy they'll make the little girl inside of you!
