How to Dress Trousers Up & Down

Dressing Trousers Up & Down

In my honest opinion, I think that personal style is so complex. I attempted to write about it in a post last year. But it’s just so hard of a concept for some reason. But I do kind of love how our personal style tends to change every couple of years or so. Mine changes about every year or two. Each year as I get closer to being over the hill, lol, I keep gravitating toward more dressy and sophisticated styles and looks. With that, trousers have become my absolute favorite thing to wear. I can’t get enough of high waisted trousers and pants. I find them just as comfy as jeans and love how polished and “together” they make me look and feel. I love throwing on a pair with a blazer or cute blouse to wear to a meeting or dressing them down with a jean jacket or t-shirt.


I currently have a small collection of trousers but am looking to add more to my wardrobe since they are such a great fashion staple. I snagged this awesome 80’s pair from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Von Vixen Vintage. I swear, I love everything in their shop and love how they photograph and style their pieces on Instagram! I’ve been wearing these pants for a couple months now but have mostly been dressing them down. Check out two of my favorite ways to wear trousers by dressing them up and also making them casual:



Dressing Trousers Up - Look #1


I tend to shy away from being too dressy when wearing trousers unless it’s for a meeting, networking or business event. But there’s nothing like a pair of well fitted trousers and a white top. I went with the denim jacket but a cool blazer totally helps pull this look together if it’s for the office or a meeting where you want to make a good impression. Also, a clutch purse or more serious bag could be worn. I just love mixing in more casual pieces to balance out the look and make it workable for me and my style.



Dressing Trousers Down - Look #2


I love this t-shirt from So Loves Vintage (@solovesvintage)! It sums me up so well. Hehe. I just love t-shirts with a good pair of trousers and a cool pair of sneakers. I’m slowly but surely building my collection of t-shirts. I like them fitted and oversized. I think both fits look great with trousers. And I have so many Converse and just had to wear my favorite yellow deadstock pair scored from 10ft by Stella Dallas. They have the best selection of Converse I’ve ever come across.

How do you wear your trousers and pants???
