#FashionFebruary Week 2 | The Harem and Ear Cuff Edit | Holy Chic


This is not a sponsored post!

Hey guys!

So this is week 2 of the #FashionFebruary and this week, we had to style harem pants and the accessory being an ear cuff. Two very contrasting items but in actual fact go very well together.

So as you probably already know by now, I am a bit of a people pleaser so I have created two looks for two different types of harem pants and ear cuffs. I will stop the chit chat now and just get straight into the two looks I have created.

I called this look the basic three because of the three basic colours/tones that I included; black, white and grey. Those are great base tones for anyone to have in their wardrobe and all three colours go with everything. These jogger style harem style pants are great to dress up or down. I went for a casual chic look and incorporated a crop top with a leather jacket and a hat to mix things up a little bit. I finished the look with some white high top converses because you can never go wrong with them and a silver toned ear cuff for a more grunge look and too keep with the cool/almost icy colour palette. I love this outfit as well because it incorporates a lot of basics that I think every girl should have in their wardrobe. This look would be great for busy uni student.


Okay so for this look, I went a bit more on the tailored side of things but still kept it very simplistic and a simple colour palette. I teamed these black structured harem pants with a fitted blazer, a whit oversized tank top and some Zara inspired sandal heels, much like the ASOS website did. Great minds really do think alike J okay then because I felt the look had a really monotonous tone (if that even makes sense) so I added this arrow brass toned statement necklace and the ear cuff of choice was a simple gold chain one to keep the look professional yet chic. This look would be great for the professional.

Now in my opinion, I actually really like harem pants because they are a great medium between casual yet professionally looking and I adore the versatility of them. They are great to be dressed up or down and I think are a great staple piece that every girl should have in their wardrobe. However for the ear cuffs, I have always thought they looked amazing but I don’t think I could ever pull them off. I think that they could be purchased anywhere and I didn’t find any particular shop that I loved them from. However, for the harem pants, I highly recommend checking out ASOS for them because they have some really cute casual ones to some great professional looking ones and I may have to order me some of those.  

I hope you guys like this post and if you did, get involved in the twitter chats using #FashionFebruary and tell me what you thought of my post or perhaps how you would style the harem pant an ear cuff. Also, let me know your favourite look in the comments section below.
