Instant Impact: The Trusty Trouser

Get ready to make a serious statement with one of the most trusted items in your closet... the printed trouser!

Why we love them: You can basically wear them all day long from a casual coffee date to an evening out with your girlfriends. You can dress them up with a pretty pump, or dress them down like I have styled here. Need I say more?

Styling Tips:
-For a spiced up look, pair with a solid silk top and a playful cardi. If you're really daring, you could top the look off with a pair of oxfords.
-Keep the rest of your outfit simple. The printed pants are busy enough. The key is to anchor the look with a solid piece (in my case, a black sweater).
-To pull the complete casual look together be sure to add a pair of neutral shoes. I always opt for these 'Trolley' leather booties. They are so versatile!

    Want to define your waistline? Play around with your tops by tucking in the front.
Wearing: Forever 21 Trousers (similar here), Madewell stackable rings, Nordstrom BP Booties, Nicki Minaj Black Sweater Kmart Fashion (on sale for $6.00!!).

Other trousers that I love:
Wide-legged trousers pair well with fitted tees
Slim daisy printed trousers. Creates the "long leg" illusion.

Tweet me your favorite looks @Dressedby_Jess, I'd love to hear from you!



  1. I want to wear pants like this, but I am afraid I will look heavy in them. Any tips?

  2. @Samantha try the standard trousers with a little bit of flare. Wear them with heels to lengthen your shape, and if you want to slim out even more, try finding a trouser with vertical stripes!

  3. you have amazing pictures! love the outfits as well
