Lots of fashion restrictions for us petite women, as if life isn’t a struggle already from down here, our point of view. Rules are to be broken as far as the saying goes, a petite must-should join the 70s party as well regarding the wide leg pants. They are most comfortable, flattering, and easy to wear. However, there are few little tricks to keep in mind my darlings. I may start with the most important tip, the fitting; choose high waisted, soft materials, preferably from non-wrinkle fabric to fluidly hug your curves. Moving on, on your upper body, tuck in your t-shirt, avoid oversized styles, and yes please do wear your little cropped top for a bold evening look. Monochromatic combinations and shuffling of different textures will bring you far in life; it’s effortless, classic and yet always chic.
Would you guess my pants are from Zara? I’ve expressed my frustration with the brand in the past; due to poor fitting, it makes me wonder if proper female measurement statistics have been analyzed prior to design. After work, often I would visit the local store with a cappuccino in hand and walk away empty-handed 5 minutes later. It’s been one of those rare moments to have finally found an item from the brand to fit me like a glove. While most would agree, my choice in wide leg pants is daring, judging from the strange looks of my neighbors and the people we passed on our 1st of May after lunch walk, I am most grateful for finding them! Another struggle has been finding the perfect striped t-shirt, I cease my search or shall I say research, Hallhuber has covered me this season, my t-shirt comes in the long sleeved version as well, in soft pink (here), black (here) and red (here).
