Prints in the Park: Oasis V&A Collection | Katie Kirk Loves

Not so long ago I thought I'd never be able to wear printed trousers and feel confident. I thought that it would be unflattering on my pear shape figure to have patterns drawing focus to my lower half so I always kept the patterns to shirts, tops and dresses. When I won the competition from Oasis however, I received several pairs of printed trousers in various colours and once I actually tried some on I realised that they can work on my body shape! - Well I think so anyway. I got some wide leg ones, see here, as well as this straighter, elasticated style. It's all about getting the right cut that fits the waist and skims over your hips enough I think. The type of pattern is also key, try and avoid anything that creates a horizontal line across your widest part. If you're having a tummy/bum/thigh conscious day then try leaving the top, shirt or jumper untucked therefore the pattern is only exposed down the legs. Long necklaces also help by creating a line down the body.

These photos were taken several weeks ago (hence why I still have my summer tan) as my regular readers will know I've been really ill for a few months now so I've been quite limited to getting out for outfit shoots. To make this outfit work for Autumn I would add a pair of heels or brogues/oxfords and a navy blazer or jumper.
