HOW TO CHANNEL RIVIERA CHIC IN HIGH WAISTED TROUSERS

Good morning everyone, today’s attire is based around these high waisted trousers. A great pair of trousers to have for this Spring/Summer season. I find high waisted trousers to be one of the easiest items to wear as they enhance my shape. The accent on the waist will give the curvier silhouette that hourglass look by cinching in the waist. Whilst on the other hand the loose fitting will add some volume to those who are less curvier and want a fuller shape. Perfect for all occasions whether it be for a daytime look or for a formal evening dinner. So why not channel your chic Riviera look in a high waisted trouser this season!

HIGH WAISTED TROUSERS

What I love about these black high waisted trousers from Karen Millen is that they make my legs appear to be infinitely longer. Now who doesn’t love a pair of trousers that makes their legs appear longer than it is? I always opt for trousers that skim the floor when I wear them as I find them to be more flattering on me. However, if you are on the petite side or are feeling conscious about feeling swamped stick to a slimmer fitting leg.

Now when it came to styling these trousers I wanted to channel the chic Riviera look. Of course these are perfectly wearable to the office with a white tailored shirt too. I just wanted to feel like I was strutting along the French Riviera, instead of the cold day here in London. You can easily switch the black for a white pair of high waisted trousers and that would work wonderfully too. The added bonus here is that these high waisted trousers are currently on sale!

STRIPED BLOUSE

I opted to style my high waisted trousers with this striped balloon sleeve blouse which is also from Karen Millen. Stripes and French Riviera go hand in hand in my opinion. The blouse comes in a collard neck and is fitted through the waist. Can I just say how much I am loving the bow detail at the cuff. This is what sold me to this shirt and of course not forgetting the balloon sleeves. I adore a statement sleeve top as much as the next person and this one is absolutely gorgeous.

SOCK BOOTS

Moving onto my shoes and here I have opted for my Public Desire sock boots. You can just about see them peeping through and making an entrance. These really don’t need any introductions as you would have seen me wearing them in my previous posts. However, I could have easily worn my Castaner wedges and they would have also worked rather well here. Personally I think a pair of white Castaner’s would be perfect with his ensemble for the French Riviera.

FEDORA HAT

Next I styled my outfit by wearing my Whistles fedora hat in black. This hat is perfect for wearing all year round. Whether it’s for those colder days to keep my head warm or for those sunnier days, shielding me from the sun. For the Riviera go for a straw boat hat or a white/cream fedora. Just be careful as you will get make-up on it as I tend to find out the hard way! Of course if you are one of those people who doesn’t wear an ounce of make-up well you have nothing to worry about.

BAG

So onto my bag and to this gorgeous pearl detailed black Marks And Spencer number. Yes it’s from Marks And Spencer and looks way more expensive then it is and I have had it for a number of years now. The bag is big enough to fit all my essentials. Love the pearl detailing on the front and the gold chain. Just ties in beautifully with my overall look. This bag would also work for the Riviera but if you want to go traditional then opt for a straw bag or basket bag.

SUNGLASSES

My look is not complete without my sunglasses and this vintage pair is from Gucci. So glad to see the smaller frames are back in trend, not that it matters as I would have worn them anyway. It’s just good to see that I invested in something and getting the most use out of it!

ACCESSORIES

As for the finishing touches I am wearing my all time favourite nude lipstick from Lime Crime Velvetines in the shade Teddy Bear. The lipstick is a matt liquid one and is just the perfect shade for my skin tone and not at all drying. To complete my look I am wearing my gold cylinder ring from AUrate New York. So there you have it, an outfit to inspire you to head to the French Riviera in style.

    Sticking with a classic silhouette like black and gold hardware with some added details can make any bag look so high end! I love this because honestly, you don’t need a logo to be high end or in fashion. I love that bag highly a lot more than Chanel honestly. And your trousers are beautiful! High waisted is my fav style. It has a classic look also. And your photos are killer chic 🙂

    What a fabulous riviera chic look! Love how you styled the navy theme for early spring. That striped blouse is gorgeous…love the volume of it, paired with those high- waisted pants, it creates such a sophisticated look. I’m a big fan of palazzo high-rise trousers. They make our legs look endless, don’t they? Besides, I always found the wide cut of trousers so elegant and classy.
