Ever heard of Elephant pants? I hadn’t heard this term referring to “wide-leg” pants until recently. If you haven’t noticed, there are many different pant lengths and styles that are on trend for the fall from skinny jeans to flare to harem pants to wide leg. So, how do you wear each style? Can you wear each style? I think the hardest thing about fashion is wearing the trends that fit your style and body, altering trends to fit your body shape, and then bypassing those trends that don’t work well for your body type. Adjusting these wide-leg pants to fit my body is exactly what I had to do today!
These wide-leg pants seemed too good to be true when I stumbled upon them: they were comfortable & had a fun pattern. I originally bought them with the idea in mind of wearing them with a simple top tucked in. I tried that and yikes…my torso is too short and my chest is too big for that to look right. So, I had to figure out how to adjust my outfit to flatter my figure. To do that I paired these pants with a longer, solid top to elongate my figure. I still wanted the outfit to be playful, so I added another print with the floral kimono and then added a colorful clutch.
What are some of the ways you adjust fashion trends to fit your figure? I’d love to hear!
