My Style: Liquorice & Citrus (ASOS Chartreuse Trousers Edit #1)

Hello! So this is my final installment of my ASOS petite samples, featuring these drop. dead. gorgeous chartreuse peg leg trousers. In fact, I love them SO much, I have decided to produce thress separate posts featuring them, showing different ways of styling them. You wouldn't really envisage them to work well with that many things, but I have honestly found them so versatile! They really are a staple wardrobe item for Summer. I've found they can be formally dressed up suitably to wear to work, casually dressed down with a pair of pumps and tucked in tee, or jazzed up with accessories, heels and a cute crop top for a dinner date or cocktails. I literally cannot get over how much I love them! Again, as these were from the petite range, I have found them to fit me perfectly - waist and leg wise. However, I do find I usually have to go a size down with ASOS clothes, even in petite. You can check out my post on the Size ASOS event from a few weeks back to hear more about the sizing of their clothes, and the concept the brand decided to introduce to enable truer sizing to their clothes.
For my first look featuring the trousers, I thought this monochrome blouse added a sophisticated edge, glamming it up slightly with a bejewelled statement necklace (what else!?), and adding a pair of barely there sandals (still obsessing over these), and an oversized clutch. This look would be perfect for the office with a smart blazer, minus the clutch, and could take you straight onto after work drinks at a cool cocktail bar. The monochrome tones down the citrus shade, while pulling it all together with a dash of the matching colour in the necklace.






I can't wait to get the next two edits live to show you! :)
