Just a quick post today to share with you my new way to disguise a midsection. Although, I can’t actually tell if I am disguising or creating one with this outfit, so take your pick. I think in general that boxy, slightly voluminous tops like these look best with skinny pants or shorts to create a balance for the volume, but here I needed the pleating on the top of these slacks to have less pouf, so I just kept the pouf going all the way up. The pants are a strange hybrid of skinny, cropped, pleated, and harem, so I guess I have my bases covered, but it’s no secret that these pants are a styling challenge for me. I love a good challenge, however, so I gave it another go.
Big thanks to Jane of FrothyGirlz for featuring me on her post. I already thanked her on several other social media outlets, but who doesn’t like to be thanked repeatedly? A link to the post will now reside on my Features page.
