So, in light of Angie's post this morning, I hereby put up for your (I hope, sympathetic) amusement my outfit fail from Saturday.
The forecast was for snow. A friend and I were going out for a belated birthday lunch and a play.
So I chose to try one of Angie's recommendations:
- Wear high-waisted skinny jeans with roomy cropped or tucked tops.
But. I didn't like this outfit at all. The jeans felt too snug. (They are a bit snug after 3 months of no exercise, but mostly it's the fabrication -- a high amount of "structured stretch" for want of a better term.) And I really didn't feel like this flattered me. I felt blocky, thunder-thighed, and not at all fashionable.
I much preferred an earlier attempt with wide leg trousers -- more fluid and easy.
But. You know. Snow.
Which explains why I will never stop wearing skinnies and they're a true modern classic. :)
On reflection, I think I might have liked this a tiny bit better if I had used this recommendation also:
- Tuck them into mid-calf boots.
Oh well. Next time, right?
