I found these pants when I was working on my room. I bought them at H&M four or five years ago. I didn’t wear them much because I never could figure out what to wear them with. I wore them to a few shows but I mostly wore these pants as costumes. I woke up this morning and decided that I wanted to wear them with this shirt. Unfortunately I couldn’t find that shirt. I’m hoping that it wasn’t a casualty of moving and shows up soon. I just threw on a t-shirt but later today I decided to try coming up with some outfits to wear these pants with.

Option 1: This is what I wore for most of the day. It’s a little too high school for me. I used to always wear tight pants and band t-shirts when I was that age. I put on my black cardigan when the weather cooled down and it looks a lot better that way.
Option 2: It’s pretty simple but it’s wearable for the summer. When I put it on I felt like I should be going to a Secretions show or something in this outfit but seeing the pictures now, it doesn’t look overly punk to me.
Option 3: This was way too warm for summer. It’s a look that I could wear in WA, though. I like touch of yellow so that it’s not only black, white, grey, and red. That’s one of the problems with these pants. My outfits always look so White Stripes-y to me.
Option 4: Sorry for blinding you with this one. I mostly put it on to see if the shirt I can’t find would look okay because it is also a button down. The pattern clashing here is actually growing on me.

In conclusion, these pants are hard to wear. I’m trying to decide if I should let them go or not. Feel free to offer opinions. I won’t be offended if you say they’re hideous and should be burned.






  1. no, don't get rid of these pants! you don't make them look hard to wear at all. and though all the options look very good on you, I especially like 2 and 3.

  2. I opt for keeping the pants :]. While they might be harder to wear and not 'practical' versatility-wise, I think it's always fun to have at least a few pieces that are more unique. I like the 3rd outfit the most—I would definitely wear these pants with a black sweater to tone them down a bit. But that's me personally!

  3. those pants are awesome! I actually really like the clashing print look, very cute!

  4. I love punk looks so options one and two are my favourite! I would be stumped on how to style those pants… they're so good but so… patterned!

  5. those pants are awesome! i'd just wear them with a white tee or tank. loose or fitted.
