Festival season is my favourite part of Summer when it comes to fashion, everyone is braver, bolder and that little bit cooler. When Missguided asked me to take part in a festival styling challenge, I couldn't wait to get my hands on these amazing aztec print trousers and style them up. 

I tried to imagine how I would wear them if I was at a festival; although a baggy black top tucked in may seem like the obvious choice, I think it's a pretty bold look when teamed with the bright print on the trousers and it is definitely the kind of top I would pack for a festival, it's cool, comfy and versatile enough to wear with lots of different things... The other option I would pair with these for a festival would be some kind of black strappy bralet, which I'm sure would look amazing (just not on me, I don't have the figure for that unfortunately!)
The trousers are really light and loose, which is kind of perfect for the warmer weather, and the fact that they taper slightly at the ankle means that most shoes options to pair with them. I went for my favourite shoes at the moment, my Topshop sale bargains with the chunky wrap around straps.

The colours in the trousers luckily and cooincidentally seemed to match my new necklace from Red Box Accessories perfectly, which adds a little bit of festival glam to the look and finishes off the outfit just to my taste. Everyone knows I love a blingy necklace, and pretty much look for any excuse to wear one. I also love how it looks against the simple black tee. 

The final touches to the outfit came from my makeup and big hair. For the makeup I went all out festival style with a gorgeous blue eyeliner from Lush (which you may have seen on my Instagram) which I surprisingly love! I might even have to experiment more with coloured makeup this Summer!

How would you style these trousers?
