Styling leather look trousers day to night
…Or night to day in this case, but whatever. 😛 I bought some (literally) shiny new pants, and thought I’d style them in a nighttime/daytime kinda way because shiny pants are always good, obviously. Not that I really do the whole ‘daytime to nighttime outfit’ thing (I’m more of a ‘change ALL the clothes! Throw ALL the clothes on the floor!’ kinda gal), but if I did wanna wear one item for both, then I’d say shiny pants are a good bet. ‘Night’ = going out here btw. Let’s just ignore that most nights are better spent in fleece pyjamas, yeah?
Lil’ intro to Shiny Pants. Shiny Pants are the same fit as these (not shiny) jeans that I’ve worn approximately 63297 times since raving about their fit on the bloggy back in March. Shiny Pants are – surprisingly for spray on jeans – pretty comfy, meaning they get more points than my grey pair of leather-look pants from H&M years ago, which one cannot wear if one has eaten a muffin at any point during the previous year. (I’ve eaten lots of muffins). Shiny Pants do sound kinda papery when you walk, but not as squeaky as aforementioned grey circulation-cutter-offers. All in all, shiny pants are good! And all for £22.50 if you factor in student discount, so win win.
I *almost* threw on my black fringe cape from last year too (oh so creative with all the black, I know) but realised I had a catwoman-costumey kinda vibe going on and quickly sacked that one. Maybe for generic-teenage-girl-Halloween?
My jumper’s a new one too, ’cause Friday was payday and why the hell not! The wraparound fit can only be described as the ‘perfect emoji’ so it had to be mine.
(Something must’ve been funny?!?)
Anddd the daytime part! Well, minus the heels because ain’t nobody got time
effort for heels all day. I just forgot my flat boots haha. Big baggy grey fluffy jumper though, that’s daytime-y! And nighttime-y too, if you count wearing it with oh-so-fetching jogging bottoms at 11pm on a Sunday night lol. (Defo not what I’m wearing now, at all…). Works well to tone down the erm, shinyness, of Shiny Pants though, no? Anything with mahoosive sleeves and a floppy neck and A POCKET (pocket appreciation club, anyone?) is casual through and through, so we’re good.
This is what you get when I try a little twirl like the big guns bloggers pull off so well. I call it ‘Gormless Deer in the Headlights’. So sophisticated.
I must add that despite it’s cosy comfyness, this may well be the only jumper on earth to inflict pain. Pain on an eyeball, that is. Yes you did read that correctly. I’ll rephrase that: I may well be the only person on earth to manage to inflict pain on myself with a soft wooly jumper. OK so said pain was only a piece of fluff stuck to my contact lens, but it really hurt and made my eye water! And I had no lens case with me to pop it into so I had to place it carefully on a camera lenscap and transport it around like the crown jewels, with one lens still in making my vision go a bit weird. They’re both cleaned and fizzing away in peroxide solution (yes really) overnight, so all is well!
