Stealing Gwyneth's Style + WIWT - Stripes & Cropped Kick Flares

Gwyneth Paltrow

Morning ladies I seem to have missed a style steal last month so I'm getting June's in early before I forget!

As soon as I saw this picture of Gwyneth Paltrow it got me thinking.  Now of course fingers crossed this look is going to be too warm for us until Autumn but it's definitely something I'd like to replicate come the cooler months & in the meantime it can so easily be adapted to summer.  Plus khaki is such a fab colour to team with all the navy, black, grey & white/cream that's hanging in our wardrobe the trousers could prove a useful addition to our wardrobes.

So with this in mind here's a few looks using Gwyneth's outfit above as the inspiration.


Shirt - ASOS
Trousers - Next
Trainers - Hush


Biker Jacket - Baukjen, or more purse friendly Warehouse
Lace Trim Camisole - Next
Trousers - Next
Boots - Hush


Top - Mango
Trousers - Next
Sandals - Baukjen, or more purse friendly Marks & Spencer

Of course the above looks could also be teamed with a denim jacket, cropped blazer not to mention military jacket.  Plus there are so many tops that could be styled with the trousers - from a simple tailored white shirt to a denim shirt to a pretty broderie blouse to a simple tee the options are endless.

Back to today & it's a simple stripe & kick flare kind of day with a new knitted top from the J Crew sale that was a complete steal.

Knitted Top - J Crew
Cropped Kick Flares - Marks & Spencer
Biker Jacket - Massimo Dutti
Trainers - Golden Goose


Cropped Kick Flares - Marks & Spencer
Biker Jacket - La Redoute
Trainers - Hush

So ladies what are your thoughts on cropped wide legged trousers - are you a lover or is it something you've yet to try?  As always I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Finally it's the last day to take advantage of Boden's latest promotion - up to 30% off here, just remember to use code 6T2C at checkout.

Enjoy your day & I'll see you in the morning.
