My fashionistas, fashion wise we are officially in Autumn/Winter 2013 season, as observed the trend of this season, Catwalks were all about legs. For the past two years, Fall is fashionably fabulous with legs swathed in brocade, silk, linen or sequined trousers. Slim-fitting and tapered in at the ankle, often with a pleat front, the Cocktail trouser was the most practical garment on the runway, and one I’ve been desperate to get into ever since.
Cocktail implies flirty and fun – much like the beverage – meaning there’s nothing stuffy about these trousers. They are an useful piece of clothing that you can rock from coffee to Cocktail hour. So, when I’m spending an afternoon doing all touristy thingie in NYC, I had opted for a flat ballerina pump to team up with my cocktail trouser, but give me a pair of stilettos, I will feel completely ready for the evening. Ignore any preconceptions about trousers being boring because you’re about to steal the sartorial show at any party you attend. For a chic, fun alternative to the party dress, could there be anything better than this piece of bottomwear?
With a monochrome-esque Cocktail trouser, I chose to wear a bright sunshine yellow kaftan top and threw some color in it with a two tone color-blocked ballerina, multi-colored beaded neckpiece and a folk printed headband.
