Pastel Pink Wide Leg Trousers and Vintage Shirt + Style With a Smile Link Up

Pastel Pink Wide Leg Trousers and Vintage Shirt

The vintage obsession continues, with this shirt being one of my latest eBay finds. When I bought it I hadn’t considered what to wear it with, but after a little trying on session I settled on these pastel pink wide leg trousers. I like the tonal look, with the dark pink and coral shades in the shirt’s print.

Vintage shirts often have shorter sleeves than their modern counterparts, which, for someone like me with long arms is a drawback. A lot of vintage sellers include the sleeve length in the description, presumably for this reason. Luckily this one is just about long enough in the sleeves for me. I love the typically 70s dagger collar and the charming square metal buttons. It feels really nice on too, plus it’s the kind of fabric that doesn’t crease.

Pastel Pink Wide Leg Trousers and Vintage Shirt

As I mentioned in last week’s link up post, when I buy a new (or new to me) piece of clothing, I’m going to think of several ways to wear it. Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style does this brilliantly and is inspiring me to be more creative with my clothes (check out this post styling a shirt dress five ways).

For an alternative to trousers I’d try styling this shirt with a pleated midi skirt and chunky sandals

Even though I rarely wear white, I think this shirt would look great with a pair of white wide leg trousers – maybe the ones I wore for the Stylish Monday Summer Whites post a couple of years ago. Flared jeans would be another option, as would a pair of trousers in a contrasting colour such as blue or green. For an alternative to trousers I’d try styling this shirt with a pleated midi skirt and chunky sandals. These pink trousers are a couple of inches too long and I keep meaning to get them taken up. I should really learn how to do basic alterations but I’m apprehensive to try in case I make a mess of it. I need to find some YouTube tutorials – how did we manage without it?

Do you think of different ways to wear a piece of clothing before you buy it or are you more of an impulse shopper?

  13. You are the vintage ebay queen! That top is such a great find and super cute on you!

  14. Nancy says:

    I would love to see this blouse on a pleated skirt, I think that would look amazing. Do you own a pleated skirt? But those pink trousers are also perfect with it. It’s a gorgeous blouse, I love the print and colors. And your bracelet!

    You wear these styles and patterns well Emma. I’m not too confident to pair this, but it does look so good. Thanks for hosting x Jacqui x

  16. Gail says:

    I absolutely love this colour combination. I saw a garden featured on TV that had a colour scheme around deep pink and orange which really inspired me (although my tulips didn’t quite match up this year!) xx

  17. Emma, you seriously find the best vintage pieces! What a fabulous shirt. I love all the little details about it that you pointed out and the colors and the print are so cool. It looks great with those fun pink pants! I think I am going to try my hand at some minor alterations this weekend…but I probably need YouTube’s help as well. I hope I don’t make a mess of it!

    Such a pretty color scheme!! I do not usually think of multiple ways to wear an item before buying it, but I always come up with a bunch of ways later on. That’s my favorite part of fashion!

    I really like this ensemble, the pink pants match the pink shade of the blouse. It looks fresh and easy to wear. I personally have 2 pairs of pink trousers myself. Congrats!
