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!

  1. I guess it would, because a person has legs, anyway, and those are “skinny” (form-fitted). 😀

    I hear the skinny jean silhouette has taken hold the world over and people refuse to give them up.
    Though I did read one piece by a guy with the new skinnier suit and he couldn’t squat to change a tire!
    I have never owned a single pair that has that creased around the knee sausage casing look. Philosophically, I think it’s TMI. And if they’re close to a typical skin tone, just awful at a distance. Is that woman half naked?

  2. Lol. That is so true! I confess, I recently biffed a perfectly good pair of summer ankle pants just because they were light pink 😉

    I am still figuring out what all this means for my own wardrobe, but I am very thankful that at this point, while I am still figuring it out, it is small! 🙂
