Lately I’ve been craving long, sort of free and easy layers to ease me gently into fall. Doesn’t that sound appealing? I don’t know what it is about these cargo pants that make me want to style them all billowy on top, but it’s probably because they are a little lower in the waist than I tend to like, so I need a little length and volume up top to mitigate the butt-crack. No one likes to see that.
When wearing loose, long layers, try wearing a contrasting camisole underneath to create a little shape and depth to your outfit. I love the way fitted and looser layers synthesize together to create a balanced look. Plus, this shape of top is a tried and true tummy hider (the kind that draws attention instead to your arms and legs) so you can eat all day if you want to AND no one sees your bum. It’s a win-win.
