The polka dot trousers - Le pantalon à pois

I have been following the polka dot trousers trend from far as I thought I had my share of printed trousers but I have to admit that these are becoming more and more appealing to my eyes.

Everything started when I first saw Topshop's bottle green vintage-look (= grandmother look) polka dot trousers last fall. Although super trendy these trousers were not for me, they really looked too much like an old piece of cloth (oops, I said it).

I don't remember exactly when but shortly afterwards, the blue version came out and it look much better. This version was quite popular and attracted not only fashion bloggers who always want to look über trendy but also top models and actresses like the beautiful Poppy Delevigne and the lovely Veronica Mars Kristen Bell.

And if that wasn't all, my favorite denim brands have been releasing polka dot jeans since the beginning of the year and every time I see a new style my interest rises a notch. I definitely prefer the jeans version, I find them more cool and wearable and for sure more durable. If I owned the Topshop trousers I would probably only wear them once and if there is something I don't let myself do anymore is buy clothes to wear just once. So the Topshop trousers, mmmh... not for me. But the jeans on the other hand, they look super yummy, don't they ?


Aimee, Walinette and Blair - all in Current/Elliott

I have found many options in premium denim but the alternatives in high street shops are still scarce. If you're interested, Walinette did find some here and the baby blue Kirsten jeans are also very affordable.

 Stella jeans (true religion), Kirsten dot jeans (tv3), black Current/Elliott stiletto jeans (net-a-porter)

My favorite is the black Current/Elliott stiletto, they are even on sale on net-a-porter.com but unfortunately my size is sold out (grrrrrrrrr for being so standard sized !!). If I do find them for an affordable price I think I will not resist...

How about you, are you a polka dot girl ?

Have a great week my lovely readers !

  3. J'ai toujours aimé les pois, et pas que sur les jeans, sur les robes aussi notamment. Et comme toi j'avais aussi repéré en début d'année ces pois et je résiste aussi de plus en plus. Moi c'est celui ci qui m'interesse : http://www.revolveclothing.com/DisplayProduct.jsp?product=CURR-WJ334&c=Current%2FElliott et il en reste dans toutes les tailles j'attends en espérant qu'il soit soldé!:)

  7. I do love the ditsy polka dot print but polka dot trousers are not very kind to girls with legs that dont resemble bean poles - personally I'm working a polka dot dress. x

  8. I tend to be super conservative with the way I dress. I don't generally follow trends BUT every since I see printed jeans on lovely ladies who truly rock them, I'm slowly changing my mind.
