So this outfit looked better in my head, even though I know in real life it's not terrible (it's not terrible, right?) I've always been a fan of those gals who can rock a pair of crumbly baggy pants with sky high heels, a ratty men's undershirt of a tank and some sort of jacket and make it all seem like a legit ensemble. It has always seemed so laidback cool to me - like she cares but she doesn't, she's polished but in a really casual comfort-first way, she's sexy but doesn't need to flaunt it. Sure, most of those gals are usually named Beyonce or Halle Berry or at minimum 5'10" tall sans shoes, but who gets hung up on details?
I figured if I played around with the fit of the pieces, add in a collared shirt and some color, I could make it work appropriate and more realistic for a shortie like myself. And though I don't dislike this look, one of my first thoughts after I glanced in the mirror was "wannabe hipster farmer flight attendant" so that started things off well. Hey y'all, would you like some raw Spanish peanuts or pretzels with organic fleur de sel?
So that's me explaining away my outfit, like I need to defend (or excuse) myself for my style choices. Which I know I don't. And if something doesn't work, well, chances are that I'm the only one that'll really notice and lesson learned. But I'm really comfortable. And I'm fairly certain that I may try another similar ensemble again because as much as it doesn't really fit my body (remember these?), I can't help loving a baggy tapered cropped pant.
What do you do when the outfit you're wearing is not quite right? Do you roll with the excuses when someone makes a comment about it, mess with it work, or rock it like you meant it? If a trend you like doesn't seem to work for you, do you still keep trying?
