Ever since I bought these two weeks ago, I have become completely obsessed with these ‘leggings’ from Topshop. I’ve always been a lover of patterned leggings, and I especially love the aztec tribal design on this pair. They just seem to match everything, and they look great; either dressed up for a night out, smartly for a job interview, casual for day to day wear and as a casual/smart look.
They retail at £28 and what’s great about this product is that Topshop stock them in all the ranges, including tall, petite and maternity, so anyone can get away with wearing them. They are just as comfy as leggings due to the Elastane, but because of the Ponte material and the side zip, look more like a pair of skinny leg trousers.
I understand that they are quite bold for some people’s tastes but here are four different ways I’ve styled these for various different occasions..

Style One.. The job interview
These trousers add a bit of vibrance compared to a normal interview look. I paired them with a pink pasha camisole, a simple black blazer, white pointed toe stiletto’s, a black and white handbag and cat-eye sunglasses. The pink camisole makes a bit of a statement and adds a hint of colour amongst this otherwise monochrome look. Apologies for the football in the background, a tad un-classy!
Style Two.. Casual day to day look
For this style, I kept it really simple with a plain black t-shirt, Primark sunglasses and a black pair of Converse. Jazzed it up with a leather jacket!

Style Three.. A night on the town
I pulled the trousers up a bit in order to make them high waisted, and tucked in a simple white boob tube. I paired it with a studded belt, black leather waistcoat and suede black wedges for a night out. I also added the black and white bow to the hair to make the look more girly. Definitely 80’s inspired!

Style Four.. Out and about smart/casual
This time I paired the trousers with a green pasha camisole to add colour once again to the look. I added studded accessories to this look to rock it up a bit, such as the studded bracelet, over the shoulder bag and Kurt Geiger sandals.

These are definitely my four favourite looks, but the possibilities are endless. I could easily mix and match the accessories, shoes and tops in each style to make a numerous amount of other outfits. It’s all about trial and error!
I definitely think it would be a great idea to invest in a pair of bold print trousers/leggings for summer. Here are some of Topshop’s greatest S/S13 styles:
