OOTD: A Flair for Flares

“Women who wear black live colourful lives.”  — Neiman Marcus

Being petite and all, I never imagined that I’d stumble upon the perfect pair of flare trousers that wouldn’t swallow my short legs up. Contrary to what I had imagined, these seem to make my legs longer. I was amazed. I’ve never been a fan of flares because they don’t work on many body types but after a day out in these, I was searching for them in every colour!

I was definitely in the mood for trying out new things because instead of my regular twists, I wore my hair in a Janelle Monae inspired pompadour / bun for the day. It looks super dressy which is perfect for Christmas. I think I’m going to rocking this bun for the rest of the year now 🙂


I will attempt a Youtube tutorial of this hairstyle on my channel… :/ Stay tuned on my Youtube channel

I completed the look with my new favourite accessory – my JORD Wood watch in maple and lavender. Dressy, eh!

Items in my closet that marry perfectly together make me feel so pleased. When your trousers, belt and bodysuit look like a jumpsuit…

OUTFIT: Asos Flare trousers, Zip bodysuit with choker (sold out, similar), JORD Cora wood watch, Studded belt, Mac Giambattista Valli lipstick in Charlotte

Happy holidays to you all!

  1. WORK MAMA!!!
    When I saw the pictures on facebook I literally thought it was a jumpsuit!!!! It looks gorgeous on you!! The fact that it has a choker/necklace collar attached is just fabulous!!! And that watch?? I think I’m going to guilt someone into buying it for me for Christmas/Birthday lol.

  2. Looking so red carpet ready Lydie. The pants are fab, your hair and make are too.
    Gorgeous 👌👌
    To think I thought my last post was inspired by Janelle too. Guess we all love her ☺☺
    Spotting those pantyhose you sent me today ☺☺
    Take care of you.

  3. I agree with Mojisola. This is definitely a red carpet look. You look fabulous Lydie! Wow! The perfect shade of lipstick + a bun + the ensemble = pure perfection. You are channeling Janelle, but with your twist. I hope you do rock that bun a little while longer. It’s very becoming!

    I fell in love with that watch earlier this year. There’s nothing quite like it! Have a wonderful weekend gorgeous!
