The Paintbrush Effect

Pants c/o Lily White (here) | H&M turtleneck | Target heels

It's about time I add some spice to my monochrome winter wardrobe. I saw these pants on the Lily White website and knew they were the perfect pair for me. I have a growing collection of these loose-fitting pants, and this pair is just perfect for the colder months. I love how the print gives off the effect of random paintbrush strokes. It adds a fun vibe to the simple color palette. 

Another perk to these pants is their ability to lengthen your legs (not literally, unfortunately). As a 5'1" girl with a longer torso, my legs could use a good illusion. I've found that if you pair loose-fitting pants such as these with heels, your legs appear to go on for miles. The best part is that you can be comfortable while doing so. 

I'm hoping that all these snow-filled photos are coming to an end soon.. Spring, where are you?!

  1. I'll have to try the loose-pants-and-heels trick--I've never been a fan of loose pants (or pants, for that matter) but the print on these is just too good to pass up. Maybe I'll become a trouser person!

  2. You look so classy, Christina! I actually have the opposite problem and feel like pants look strange on me since I have a short torso. All those amazing prints are tempting me to buy more, though...

  5. Goodmorning Christina! I always love your monochrome, classy looks. Always inspiring. That print on your pants is so unique, but I love it so much.

    I always have the opposite problem with pants, my legs are too long and my torso always looks too small haha. You rock these though!

    Keep it up love.

    Best,
