Asos Africa x Chichia + Giveaway!

Pants, pants and more pants. Just when I thought I owned every pair of hot pants on the market, I discover the Asos Africa collection. This encounter is a little bit dangerous as I genuinely love EVERY.SINGLE print and pop of color. Together Asos and London designer, Christine Mando aka “Chichia,” craft exclusive styles derived from east African textiles; they are then manufactured in Kenya. SS16 marks the thirteenth collaboration between Asos and Chichia. I cannot believe it took me over a dozen renderings to purchase my first item.

The high waisted wide leg pants in “Tile Print” are divine. Thanks to the bold geometric pattern, you will become the center of attention when you walk into the room, whether you like it or not. Aside from their good looks and wonderful color palette, these pants are lightweight, machine washable and feature an elastic waistband. I think we can all appreciate a stellar piece that is also easy to care for!

For an evening at the museum, I paired these stunners with a pale blue crop top. These pants are what I refer to as, ULTRA high waisted – no need to worry about exposed midriff. I chose an off-the-shoulder neckline A. because this trend is poppin’ and B. to break things up a bit. There are a whole lotta pants going on down there, and had I styled them with a traditional cropped tank, I would have looked like a big rectangle. It is times like this where a little skin bearing goes a long way! I dressed up the look with crystal and pearl earrings from my friends over at Rodeo Boutique. They complete the look if you ask me!
