Living the High Life
As a plus sized fashion lover, trends that look great on straight sized bodies
sometimes don't translate on my body can sometimes be a little tricky for me to pull off. It's not that they don't translate or cannot be adapted, it's just goes back to me getting inside my own head. One of those trends is high waisted silhouettes without a longer top to cover my hips. (Everyone has at least one hang up and my hip region is mine.) But in the spirit of trying new things and after some intense retail therapy, I finally happened upon these high waisted, slouchy trousers from Old Navy. I loved the geometric print and the paper bag waist. Determined to style them in a way outside my comfort zone, I tucked a tank from Forever 21 half in - half out for a blouson look. Paired with a caged necklace from BCBG and a pair of Gianni Bini smoking slippers this effortless left me feeling confident all day.
