I don't know what it is about wearing bright blue recently but I really can't get enough of it. You all know how obsessed I am with Monki too and, like my neon jumper, these slouchy trousers were another £8 bargain - I have worn them so many times since I bought them! This outfit is a weird hybrid of brightly coloured TV presenter and bad 80s workwear. I blame the trousers, personally. Initially I was going to go for a more neutral jacket but I actually really love the bold primary colours together and it makes for a much more interesting outfit. The beauty of wearing bright blocky separates is that if you do get too self-conscious, you can just lose the jacket and you've got a much more conventional work outfit - perfect for more conservative offices!

This red blazer is another wardrobe staple of mine and the cropped length was perfect for pairing with the rather granny-like trousers (crepe fabric is back IN, kids...) The leopard print belt helps to break up the outfit a bit and also draws attention to my waist, which miraculously these trousers made look tiny - never a bad thing...
The fit is slightly strange on these (I think I could have probably downsized on them) and I'm not entirely convinced that they are flattering I need to get these shortened or wear heels with them but I just feel so much cooler with flats on (and they are way more comfortable for a day full of meetings!)

How would you 'de-frump' these trousers?
