Pair of Apricots

Hello everybody

I saw this movie (for the tenth time now), Baby's Day out in which mommy dearest wears this elegant outfit of 80s and I knew I had to replicate the style some day. Although not entirely, I did manage to pull off one major part- Wide leg pants in Apricot!



Although, in today's world women can wear anything they want; back then, they were judged more of their boldness to wear an item and not the item itself. Today, if we wear a bikini we wouldn't be judged since times are changing. Earlier, adopting something very uncommon was uncalled for and the women daring to do the same were judged supremely. Yet, the same women were appreciated when came in monochrome jumpsuit or suit dresses. It was not about the skin-show but more about the choice of trend you are choosing to display! Yet certain women like Rei Kawakubo, changed the fashion world by merging different trends.

Here are 5 ways to wear wide leg pants if you're short like me :D, followed by my take on part-80s-fashion I'm carrying.

1) White it Right: One is obviously a white look. White gives you a certain charm which automatically makes you look matured & confident. People know not to mess with a lady who can carry white that well! You can keep the rest of the look neutral like I have.


2) Go single: No I don't mean without your man, although no harm right? ;) I have always enjoyed going colorful but there are times when I just don't find the need to go dramatic (or not) and stick to one color. This would definitely make you appear taller as well.



3) Heels: No points for this one. Whether your pants are ankle length or run beyond, peep-toes & pumps, respectively, add a flavor of sexiness to your outfit. Ofcourse, making you taller in the process.



4) Crop-tops: They divide the your torso, making it look lean which in turn makes you look lean. If you don't have that confidence to wear a crop top then you can wear any fitted top. Just make sure it is tucked in. It's an absolute no-no if you wear loose or long tops with it.



5) Print & ruffles: In my previous post I spoke about print-on-print dresses. The utter confusion on your clothes is definitely a plus point if you're short. On the other hand, the less the volume of ruffles, the better it is for you. If the latter is too cute to ignore then make sure they are away from your torso and you'd be fine :)



Feel free to follow or not?, all of the tips since you cannot look good if you're not comfortable with what you're wearing.
