Working for Anthropologie has many lovely perks, and one of them is being able to see all the beautiful clothing and accessories many months before they are actually available to purchase. When I first caught glimpse of the adorable Charlie Trousers I knew they were destined to be a brand favorite but assumed they'd never make it anywhere near my own closet. Because, as you know, I hardly ever wear pants. So when I was given the challenge of styling the Charlie Trousers in my own way I was hesitant at first but now I'm completely smitten! They come in all sorts of fun prints and colors, but this grey brocade version is my favorite by far. I love the gamine, Audrey Hepburn-style cut and the fact that they are nice and stretchy (without being tooooo stretchy). They strike the perfect balance between feminine and tomboy and look perfectly perfect paired with my usual layers of vintage lace and frills. Perhaps I could be an occasional pants wearer after all? Hey, anything that elicits such positive comments about my bum must be alright.
Take a peek at a fun feature (I created the outfits for) here, and check back soon for another outfit inspired by the Charlie Trousers in a beautiful navy floral print!
