no, it's just my harems.
to some, harem pants come with a negative connotation. think wide hips, low crotches, and lots of extra material. it took me a while, but i think i finally figured them out. i kept wanting to pair them with long-er, fitted tops since the bottoms were full. i learned that the opposite is what i needed.
coincidentally, a fellow blogger asked me for advice on what to wear with her leopard harems,
so these are a few tips i offered her:
- accentuate the waist (not the hips)
pair it with a cropped top or jacket that hits at the waist...
or, tuck in a shirt.
wear a simple belt.
- keep tops loose and blousy
the pants should be the "skinny" part of the outfit.
stay away from fitted tops to avoid a pear shape.
thicker straps or muscle tee type shirts better balance the weight of the pants.
try a longer blazer that hits just below the hips to camouflage the bulkiness.
like i said about maxi skirts...it's all about finding the right proportions for you.
orange chicken + veggies.
shoes, nine west (similar); chanel sunglasses)
wanna give harems a try?
