Being a bit of a dress girl myself, I was sceptical about this trend. I thought that only those people will skinny, minnie legs where their thighs don’t touch could wear statement pants because all the attention is on your legs. Turns out I was wrong! I LOVE statement pants! These are my current faves from Glassons for only $49.95 (buy them here)
Styling tip: Statement pants look better with a heel (come on, you can do it, just this once!), even a heeled ankle boot will work in winter.
Most statement pants on the market at the moment are a tapered pant – they have slightly more room around the hip, and taper in to be more fitted around the ankle. The room of the hip is actually a flattering cut – because of the volume in the hip area, no one knows if its your hip, or the pant making the pants that shape -it’s all about mis-direction.
Styling tip: Statement pants make A STATEMENT therefore keep everything else simple and streamline. A fitted black top, a black blazer or coat and a pair of simple black heels or boots are the easiest way to get your head around this trend.
So go on! Make a statement…. with you pants!
