Polka Dots and Graphic Tees

palazzo pants

Look, the polka dot trousers are back!

But this reincarnation is a bit edgier. Which is fine, as I’m usually more edgy than chic.

But, to be honest, there’s no grand plan or sophisticated styling behind this outfit. I just paired the trousers with one of my favourite tees. As I do with all trousers, sooner or later.

And then I just added all the purple accessories that I have: a bag and a pair of trainers (that’s sneakers for my American readers).  I wanted to see if purple and brown look good together, given that brown is sort of a new colour for me.

What do you think? Do purple and brown make a nice colour combo?

    What a great purple collection you have! The disco trainers are fabulous! And so nice to see a well seamed pair of trousers. I would never have thought of pairing purple and brown but it works beautifully.
