Here's attempt number 3,829 at trying out the cropped slouchy pant trend and attempt 1 of doing it in color.
Despite the fact that I'm a mere 5'2" with some sturdy legs to boot, I love a cropped pant. The slouchier the better. But I can't really pull the look off, so once or twice each season, I'll break some sort of baggy crotch ankle pant out for a twirl before realizing yet again that I've spent the day looking decidedly pear-shaped and a whole lot shorter than usual.
And while I adore the look of colored pants, I've got legs that look great in skirts but thighs that easily make most straight-fit pants into legging-tights, so the colored skinny denim trend hasn't really been me any favors either.
So here's my first fall go into things, this time keeping the legs looser and restraining the slouch into daytime non-Hammer revival appropriate. And granted I need a belt to ward off saggy-ass and must wear tall-tall heels, I don't think I did half bad this time around. Or if all else fails, people will be more distracted by my buggy bling or extra shimmery shirt.
Are there trends that may or may not work for you that you still love to keep trying out?
