Style Guide: Trouser Styling Tips

Over the years, trousers have gotten a bad reputation as boring business basics that only flatter people with mile-long legs.

Look #2

 Look #3
This look is full on retro girl boss, and I’m obsessed. From the throwback touches (a pair of sharp cat-eye sunnies and a skinny leopard belt) to the trendy mini crossbody and monochrome blazer and trousers combo, this outfit screams street style rather than stuffy.
