Dresses are easy. They have less factors to take into account to make the perfect fit. Trousers on the other hand… are a pain. Narrow hips, short waist, well endowed badunkadunk , pear shaped, pouch…basically any human shape that’s not mannequin can provide for an unlimited amount of challenges when searching for the perfect pair of trousers. For me, I love the high waist but I have a small waist/hip ratio so what fits at the waist has all this extra baggage on the hips. It sucks, and which is probably why I was always a dress girl.
I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of trousers, and so far, it’s been a challenge. A lot of what I like out there seems to be variations of a pair of harem pants I dug out of the $1 pile at the flea market, and they only seem to come in black, blue or grey. Three colors I love but kind of want to move away from. Since I have these trousers already in my closet, I figure it’s time to give them some love again. When I first brought them out, many of you didn’t like them,but I’m thinking as time moved on, the silhouette is really just what I want.
Another thing I’ve been really drawn to lately are button up shirts. I can’t seem to get enough of them! Funny 5 years ago, I wanted nothing but to get away from the ol’ button up, and nowadays..they’re not so common…well in the cuts that aren’t so old lady like. I think I need more button ups!Trousers : Flea market • Flannel shirt : BDG. • Rope belt : H&M • Shoes : No. 704b.
