Pink and orange leopard print trousers

Firstly, thank you all for your lovely comments on my last outfit post. It's nice to know that not everyone thinks my hair looks shockingly bad! In fact, thank you for your lovely comments full stop. I have the nicest, most interesting readers. You lot rock!

Today was the first outing of my ridiculous bright pink and orange leopard print harems. They're kind of ridiculous looking, so I thought if I was going to wear them, I should take it all the way, so I teamed them with a mustard vest to really go for it with the bright colours.

Of course we all know about my addiction to black though, so I had to get some in there somewhere. I promise I'll try and phase it out by the time spring is properly here.

Primark cardigan, Asos belt, Dorothy perkins vest top, H&M trousers.


They might not be to everyone's taste, but I bloody love these trousers. When I bought them the guy at the till gave me a look and said "you'd have to be quite daring to pull these off" in a really snarky way, which seemed to suggest either a) that the trousers were hideous, b) that I wasn't cool enough to pull them off or c) both of those things. I keep seeing full rails of these in H&M (there are about 50 H&Ms in Vienna I swear), and I haven't seen anyone else in them, in real life or on any blogs, so I'm guessing they aren't too popular. Maybe I look like a fool and everyone is secretly laughing at me? I did get a few double-takes in Vienna today, but I felt like the trousers were generally accepted. If I'd worn these in Lyon I'd probably have been chased out of the city by flaming torch and pitchforkwielding locals.

So what do you lot think?

Finally, a shout-out to Anna from my German grammar class if she's reading. Anna stopped me after class this morning to compliment me on my outfit, and I gave her my blog address. She really made my day. And she didn't start talking to me in English after I told her where I'm from, which never happens. I was chuffed that someone was happy to let me practice my German for once!

  1. I think your new trousers as crazy but awesome. I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't have the guts to wear them but you're doing a fantastic job, especailly with the yellow vest. I have seen people with these trousers in the different patterns but no one in this exact pair but that's cool because you know you're being the most original

  9. In my experience, mainland Europe (excluding Paris here) is rather hesitant about 'daring' looks. Don't worry though - I think YOU can definitely pull this look off!

    Hey, if you want to practise German, I can leave my comments in German from now on ;)

  10. I think they're bloomin' fabulous on you m'dear - and as much as you want to move away from your black addiction, the belted cardi makes for such a great outfit :)
    So envious of your language skills, i really wish the british education system forced us to learn languages from an earlier age! x

  12. i love what you are wearing! whilst i couldn't pull off, nor would feel comfortable in such bright colours, everything suits you amazingly.

    i adore the way you dress, i don't quite know how to properly describe it which is pretty annoying - but effortless definitely comes to mind, you always look great.

    xx

    p.s. is it weird that when i see something mustard coloured on asos it reminds me of you? haha.

  16. I think this is perfect example of how important confidence in what you wear is. If two people are both wearing a rather unusual outfit, but one is confident in it, she will look totally normal whereas the other will just be wearing a weird outfit. You look fantastic in those trousers, they didn't even strike me as strange until I read your post and thought, yeah, you definitely don't see orange-leopard-print-harem pants every day!

  17. I love the pants! Especially when paired with bright colors! There's nothing like having exciting pants on a day when you are feeling ridiculous.

  20. Those trousers look amazing on you! They're the sort of thing that look horrendous on the hanger and probably on most people but you can definitely pull them off! Next time I'm in H&M, I'm going to look out for a pair of trousers in that style (maybe not that print, I don't think I could pull it off somehow!)
    I also love the other print you have! I love how you're not afraid to try daring prints!

  24. I would love a pair of patterned pants but anything remotely harem makes me look like a walking pair of hips. These look great and you wear them effortlessly x
