the wide angle

Perfect wide-legged pants found! I know some of you expressed doubts about how flattering this silhouette would be on different body types and I have to say I think this particular pair would be beautiful on anyone. They make you look like you're floating on clouds when you walk. Pair 'em with a giant pair of heels and you kind of are. I love the layered sheer fabrics, because they work just as well with a casual button-down as they do with a more dressy top. Aside from a slightly questionable v-shaped waistband, these babies are really quite flawless.

PS A few of you asked if my grandmother is a Kappa Kappa Gamma (regarding the bracelet in my last post) - yes, she is!

I am totally in love with those wide legged pants! Almost resembles a maxi skirt if you didn't tell me they were pants. Genius!

This is so elegant and chic! Can't believe these are pants, they really look like a skirt at first! Beautiful!

Melanie said...

Those trousers are gorgeous. And I almost find the wide-leg pants are so close to being a maxi-skirt that pulling them off might not be too hard.

I can't believe those pants are from modcloth; I was convinced they're vintage. I actually pulled out a pair of similar pants (in white) from my mom's closet, and you're inspiring me to wear them sooner rather than later!

Fiamma said...

Perfect outfit!!! I love every part of it!!! The shirt is amazing and the shoes are so breathtaking!!! You've got such an inspiring style!!!

I have really big hips, so this shape bells out at my biggest point and then just goes straight down--not cute. Definitely better on slimmer, less hippy shapes. Super cute on you though.

K said...

That blouse is so perfect! Never thought I'd be hmmm-ing at floaty trousers!

Lovely! They're very similar to the ivory ones I have in my shop. The chiffon creates such a pretty silhouette.
