- Gray jeans: thrifted, skinnied by me
- Cardi: Marshalls
- Teal nursing tank: Old Navy
- Wedges: thrifted
While trying to come to terms with the fact that I really, really, REALLY wanted to wear these newly skinnied, thrifted jeans as ankle-length pants, I turned to the always helpful Angie at You Look Fab for enlightenment. Re-reading that post on The Horror of Ankle Length Pants, I did note that a special dispensation is granted to skinny pants, particularly if worn with heels. And I’m all about taking advantage of special dispensations.
At the beginning of a new fashion season, it’s worth looking again at relatively recent posts by both Angie and Sal (of Already Pretty) on taking “figure flattery guidelines” with a grain of salt. I like these skinny ankle-length jeans on me. I can’t honestly tell you that they are the most “flattering” pants that I own, nor can I rave that my legs look so long in them. But for whatever reason, this appeals to me on some aesthetic level and I’m ready to rock it.
Is there a figure-flattery “don’t” that you’ve grown attached to? Or a style “rule” that you’re planning to defy this fall?
