This summer was truly the summer of change. For years, my wardrobe contained bottoms that were tight fitting, snug, and highlighted my figure. There were pros and cons to that. It made me feel sexy and I could flaunt my figure whenever I felt confident. But then, there were the days where I was a little too bloated or just didn’t feel as confident as I usually did. On those days it was really tough to pick the perfect outfit; one that was chic AND comfortable.
It wasn’t until this summer that I ventured into the world of fashion and explored all of the options available to me. One day while walking through the streets of SoHo, I noticed a few women walking around with large flared bottoms that tightened at the waist. Their figures were beautifully accentuated, but most importantly they looked comfortable. I decided to walk around and try to find something like that for myself.
I walked into Zara, which is always my favorite place to find clothing that is unique and true to my own style. I happened to find a pair of off-white ‘cigarette pants’. When I tried them on, the first thing I noticed is that it did nothing for my butt, haha. But I was ok with that. Cigarette pants are very similar in style to mom jeans; snug at the waist, round at the hips, and straight at the ankles. I decided to pair it with a beige crop top and Voila!, I had the perfect comfortable AND chic casual outfit.
If you’re like me and you’re looking to change up your wardrobe, I wouldn’t hesitate any longer. For years, I always eyed all of the unique fashion trends that would come out each season, but never had the confidence to walk out of my comfort zone. Whether it be to try out a new trend or change your wardrobe completely, it never hurts to go out there and try it before you commit!
