Hot Pink Cropped Peg Leg Trousers & Platform Hiking Boots

Bright Pink Peg Leg Trousers & Toffee Coloured Hiking Boots | Fake Fabulous

Bright pink, baggy, cropped, peg-leg trousers have to be one of THE most unflattering items to style!
They are bold in colour which draws attention to the fact they add bulk to the tummy and hip area (not a common place us women like to add extra visual pounds!).
The cropped length shortens the leg.
The front gathers add punch to the paunch..... I'm not selling them here, am I??!! 😜

{BTW... The light on days like today is so odd and beautiful that every photo is different. It's annoying if you're looking for the perfect shot but I love the warm (or cool, depending on the angle) glow and the shadows. I know shadows are supposed to be 'bad' for blog pictures but I can't help love them!}

However, despite their list of 'flaws' I love these trousers anyway!

Maybe it's because they have all of these challenges to overcome that I feel that they suit my personality.... at little bit of a round peg(leg) in a square hole!

I've worn these pink trousers a few times (on the blog) and oodles of times IRL.

Today I'm teaming them with one of my favourite pairs of shoes!
{Do I always say that?? Hahahaha}
These sky-high boots are hideously impractical in bad weather (unless you fancy a broken ankle).
Ridiculously high.
Surprisingly comfortable!

I love the rugged look of them and they more than make up for the loss of inches that my pink trousers take away from my legs.

I popped on a simple paisley top (with a thermal base layer underneath) and a cosy cardigan.
I love the contrast between the warm muted shades and the punch of the cooler/bolder pink.
For me, this contrast of styles and clashes of colours work beautifully.

A chunky necklace and some cheeky lurex socks finished things off nicely!

Do you like to contrast colours, styles and textures?
What combinations float your boat?
Any unexpected ones?

  1. It's such a fun outfit, I love it! Being a petite 5'2", I often purchase cropped trousers because, ahem, they end up looking regular length on me! :D Haven't dared a gathered waist yet, but it looks so good on you, I think I'll give it a shot!

    1. Oh...go for it Eleanna!
      I bet they would look amazing on you.
      My eldest daughter is only 4 feet 11 and regularly wears cropped trousers and culottes, with flat shoes too!
      She always looks chic.

  2. How rich, happy and beautiful are the colors and layers of this look. I love your pants, turtleneck and fun high-heel boots, Samantha. =)

  7. Great look Samantha - colourful in winter, and a stylish way to wear cropped trousers in winter!

  8. I love the combination of the paisley shirt and bright pink trousers! I have 5 pairs of peg leg trousers in different colours, including purple, so it's safe to say I'm a fan! Thanks for linking up!
