Geez Louise. Bohemian Traders – STOP IT.
Just STOP with the flirtation.
I’m already a BT addict/junkie (either is fine by me 😉 )
You have no need to convince this chick anymore, your stuff is bloody amazing.
Full on #fangirl status, right here.
Why oh why, do I fall so hard for every new release?
I feel like nearly every item was made, just with me in mind.
Side Note: The shorts are to die for, just not on me – shorts are a big no no with my thighs plus an age tag of 52 – yep I draw the line!
I can not harp on enough about this new range though.
Especially the drop crotch pants.
Summer Drop Crotch Pants in Natural* wearing (S) $129.00 | Classic White Tee* $59.00 both Bohemain Traders | Shoes: Sandi Wedge $179.00 Country Road (check in store as sold out online) | Sunnies: Karen Walker ‘Number One’ | Watch: Sidney Series by Jord* $199 USD
It’s like all of my prayers were answered.
Yep, you all already know I’m a drop crotch addict.
I love them.
So can you imagine my excitement when I saw my fabulous drop crotch pants appear in a linen mix – Oh My.
You could not remove the smug from my mug.
Seriously, the poor people of Buddina on the Sunny Coast must wonder who the mad ‘fist pumping’ woman is, when she picks up her parcels.
Excitement does not even come close to how I feel when I see the Bohemian Traders sticker on a parcel.
Head-over-heel seems way more appropriate.
Can you just bear with me a second or two?…Do you remember me mentioning a while back about trying to find the perfect white tee?
Well the quality of this little one is F A B
All though my ideal neckline is always a v-neck (thank the generous proportions of my boobs for that) – but for a round neck, this one is a bit special too.
It’s all down to the cut, which is great and the fabric has such a luxurious feel to it.
So if round neck is your go-to check this one above out!

How I Wear Mine
The question I get asked the most is how to wear drop crotch pants.
My answer is to work with them, not against them.
Don’t let them intimidate you. They’re edgy and a dream to wear.
- Slightly dressier.
Both work. It just depends which is more YOU.
One things for sure, with these babies its super easy to cover the both comfort and style stakes.
As well as making sure we have the fundamentals covered in our wardrobes, it’s also fabulous to add a touch of diversity.
I’m not talking show-pony pieces that we save for special occasions. Just pieces that offer a point of difference.
Drop crotch pants cover both of these bases for me. They are both a fundamental (in my wardrobe) and a diverse piece.
I simply never tire of wearing them.
Yes, some would say they are a full-on fashion piece, but they can also be a basic, if you let them.
A basic for me is an item that I grab on a regular basis – I grab mine just like I would my jeans.
An item that offers me total flexibility.
They’re also a piece that I rely on, that is also slightly different to the norm.
I’m all up for embracing those multifunctional pieces and making them work for me.
Look, I know drop crotch are not for everyone BUT please don’t run for the hills just yet pretties.
Give them a try.
Experiment until you find a pair that feel right for YOU.
Because when you nail them – they are amazing.
Yes, the cut on these Bohemian Traders drop crotch is very ‘drop’.
When I first got them, I played around with different ways of I could wear them.
I made sure I found a way to make them work for my style personality.
Making new items fit you, truly is the key to success.
Because YOU are unique.
Take inspiration from an image/person and then add a sprinkle of your uniqueness to get the ‘voila!’ moment.
I’m such a convert that I just throw mine on without too much thought.
I love adding the softness of a silk blouse against the touch edges of the pant.
Or a basic singlet with a jacket over the top.
It’s where my mind goes when I think of wearing them.
Of course the true part of making them work for me, is to add a heel of some sort.
An ankle boot works like a dream too, if it’s still cold where you are (just make sure you can see some flesh between where the pant ends and the boot begins).
For spring/summer a wedge will work well for a casual vibe.
Equally, if flats are your comfort zone, think sneakers of any description!
But whatever you do, embrace them.
Would I find drop crotch or harem pants in your wardrobe?
