Street Style: Laid Back Luxe As Seen On Charlotte

Submitted by on Friday, 16 July 2010 | No Comment

One of the Summer’s staple pieces is the relaxed trouser, be it linen, peg leg or Harem. They are versatile, easy to wear and above all, oh so comfy! I love Charlottes laid back look featuring soft and silky Harem pants in a soft muted pink, teamed with a slightly loose tee. This look is so easy to recreate and only uses a few simple pieces. It is perfect for those British Summer days when the sun tries to shine and there may be a slight chill in the air.

Charlotte wears a t shirt by Topman, Harem Trousers and Ballet  Style Pumps, both Topshop. She also carries a very beautiful Mulberry bag – jealous!

To recreate this, you will need a pair of casual Harem trousers, in a soft, slinky fabric. Go for fairly neutral colours, such as khaki, cream or dusky pink like Charlotte, and team them with a white t shirt. For a slightly oversized look, go for a mens t shirt like Charlotte has, to give more shape to the outfit. Be careful not to go too big though, as this will make you look out of proportion. Remember, Harem pants are baggy at the top, so teamed with anything too oversized will make you appear very top heavy! Add some cute girly ballet pump style flats to soften the look, and a large tan bag. Make sure you go for a fairly big bag, as this will make the rest of your body appear smaller, which is really important when wearing trousers like these.

To mix the look up completely and give it more of an evening edge, stick with the same style of trouser, but this time go for a dark shade such as black or navy. Team these with a girly blouse in chiffon, and slip on a pair of statement heels. Opt for a chunky clutch bag, but remember, the bigger the better! Stack on some jewellery and away you go!
