And here’s why:
within your silhouette, you can always wear a shorter version with skinnys under.
It may not be easy. Back in the 90s, when the oval (long sweaters and leggings) was the look; it was all but impossible for me to achieve with my proportions. The top never quite covered my bottom. 😉
But now, I think fashions have loosened up a bit; and I have too. If I can’t find the exact thing I’m looking for, I may need to spend more or alter something to work.
So, the point I’m trying to make is this:
if you want to wear slim pants, and you are a body type that normally wouldn’t; wear a long top, or even a short dress, that creates the shape you are after for the shoulders, waist, and hips.
Nine times out of 10, that will work!
