While pinks and tartans are gracing the catwalk lately, the rainbow trend is making a huge statement and popping up all over the catwalks. Many designers are paying tribute to the LGBTQ community while others are just tired to conform to the bland of the high fashion world and are using the rainbow to make happier collections. I have always loved the rainbow trend…I remember having some rainbow pieces in college and one of them was a scarf and I loved it! You could spot me miles away with that thing; sucks because I don’t know what happened to it. I remember impatiently waiting for winter to arrive so I could wear it proudly. Seeing all those beautiful rainbow inspired pieces in stores brings back so many good memories. I guess yes to inclusivity! I have to say that of all the pieces that walked the runway, my favourite was Christopher Bailey maxi coat for Burberry; it’s an absolute dream! I would wear this as a robe at home while sipping tea all day, every day!
So here’s my version of the rainbow trend, I must admit though that it takes courage to sport such bright pieces and that I had to work on a little bit…
I spotted these wonderful trousers at Forever 21 a while ago while still being massively pregnant and I grabbed them off the rack and didn’t even think about it then; without trying without checking the size, I just knew they would be perfect. And here I am today, proudly wearing them the way I see fit and I couldn’t be happier. They’re a little tight around the butt/hip area, however, I know that they still look great and most importantly, I feel freaking fabulous in them!
I paired this gorgeous trouser with none other than my current favourite sweater and they worked so perfectly together. Match made in fashion heaven.
Since I was out and about with dear little monster of mine, I couldn’t do heels and what better way to finish the outfit than with my white leather Converse. Maybe because I am exhausted and I lack sleep, but it takes a lot these days for me to feel good about myself, however, today I have to admit that I felt fresh and invigorated.
PS…for those of you who’d like to try this trend out but don’t have the guts…well you can! There are many different options available to your own liking…like these awesome joggers:
