“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are!”
I’ll admit that the first thing I thought when I saw pants like the ones I am wearing in this is post was that while they look so funky, they honestly can’t be all that flattering! I have always worn styles that have allowed me to show off my best features, one of which is the fact that I have a flat stomach and a smaller waist…
So how were these pants going to look good on me or anyone else? Well, here’s what I actually found…
Paper bag pants are perfectly suited for people that have a defined waist and don’t carry their weight in their mid-section!
When you wear a blouse or T shirt tucked in, it actually doesn’t distract from your waist and looks fabulous! Choosing a more form fitting top is best to minimize the feeling of being bulky around your waist.
They work even if you’re shorter…just choose a pair of cropped ones instead.
Wearing the wide legged paper bag pants if you’re plus size actually look fabulous.
Layering and wearing jackets is fine, but only if you opt for thinner fabrics and lighter layers.
These type of pants can give the impression of making you look shorter, so a pair of at least mid height heels is best. I prefer a higher heel, but find what works for you. Wedges also look fab!
Accessories are important. Paper bag pants usually come with their own belt, but you can switch it up and add a great thin belt instead.
A pair of statement earrings or a necklace is a great way to add some dimension to a plain top or blouse…and of course, they do exactly what they say – MAKE A STATEMENT!!
Now I’ve given you some guidelines to wearing these type of pants…are you ready to give it a go?
I always say that at the very least give something a TRY…you never know how you feel about it unless you find out for yourself! Seeing something on someone else doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be the same on you – which is why trying on clothes you’re not sure about is very important…
