happy Saturday lovers! my fabulous friend Amanda who works for a premium denim company is here today to spread some knowledge on color pants. i know i have touched on the subject before, however Amanda is going to teach us how to wear colored pants according to your body type.
Unless you've been living under a rock, we all know color denim is so in right now. It's all about rocking brights, neon’s and pastels. Even though we want to dive in head first into this trend, we have to do it right. Not everyone can rock color accordingly; I mean, know your body type and know its limits. Here are some of my tips.
I love a great pair of color and printed pants. Such a great way to spice up a wardrobe!
Short Girl: In terms of a bright pant; wear something that’s not going to make you short & stubby. Meaning stay away from anything with a larger print or a straight leg/ bootleg. The large print will weigh you down and widen you versus a small print that will just work with a petite body. Stick with anything slim fitted as well. I love a petite girl who wears a skinny jean (not cuffed) that is completely tapered to the ankle. A completely tapered leg will elongate a petite girl giving a taller illusion.
Curvy Girl: This is my fav! I mean, just because you're curvy doesn't mean you can't rock the trend. Here's the deal, don't wear anything too bright! By this I mean, if you have booty and you're afraid of it popping, stay away from neon’s and brighter hot tones (reds, pinks, orange, yellow). For this I recommend a blue, purple and green. These are all the pop of color you'll need without causing a scene. Also, stick with a mid rise skinny or capri. Mid rise is a god send especially for the girl with curves. There will be no awkward gap in the back and you'll have minimal to NO muffin top! Here are my fav picks:
This isn't rocket science so don't stress out about looking great, chances are you're looking pretty great. If you want to spice things up remember to keep the tops simple. I'm not a fan of color blocking bright tops with bright pants. I mean please don't wear a neon pink top with neon blue pants, you're bound to give someone a seizure. Keep it simple, you're pants will be the show stoppers, nothing else. Edge it up with a black leather and white tank or keep it simple with a stripe tee or light wash denim jacket. My absolute fav for a casual day are my bright red pants, a simple sandal and my grey American apparel v neck, it's comfy and chic! If you're rocking some brights out do a nude pump or a cute bootie! The key here is to have fun and you'll look great.
soooo my sister has never been one to go outside of the box & try the funky new trends...so imagine my surprise when she came over one day in COLORED pants! i couldn't believe it! she actually said my first post on colored pants actually inspired her to buy a pair...i was honored. So of course i made her do a mini photo shoot....she hated it the entire time.
my mess coming later tonight!
