I recently read in a fashion magazine that petite girls should avoid wide legged pants because they tend to “swallow us up” & make us look larger than we really are. I personally don’t think people should avoid a trend just because it may look “more appealing” on a different body type than their own. Style is completely subjective anyway, so what one person may think looks awful could be completely stunning to someone else. I have always wanted to try this trend (especially when culottes became super popular last year), but was waiting for something a little extra; cue this number with its off-the-shoulder detail (my favorite trend ever), and I was sold.
The only opinion you should really care about when getting dressed is yours, and for this reason I think we should all just wear whatever the hell we want, so I’m gonna continue to wear wide legged bottoms because–guess what–they are COMFY as hell. Even more comfy than the only other jumpsuit I own. Yes, that’s right; I only own 2 jumpsuits, and I am acutely aware that I need to correct this travesty. This one is next on my list…
So, wide legged jumpsuits–yay or nay?
