Many people leave comments and questions about the straight leg pants I usually wear. They are never leggings or skinny jeans, but they may look like it because I have muscular calves. I wear slim-fitting pants, skirts, and sometimes dresses because that’s what flatters my shape.
When you have straight slim hips and thighs, and a flat behind the best silhouette for you, hugs the hip area. A top that softly drapes and covers most of your behind is most flattering. These linen palazzo pants require a short fitted shirt to look balanced. If I wore these pants with a flowing style of top, I would look larger all over, and I would also run the risk of looking frumpy.
I could wear this on one of our ninety-four degree days, but I am not as comfortable in this look as I am in a less fitted top and slim-fitting pants.
Getting the silhouette and proportions right for your size and shape will make a big difference in how happy you are with your clothes.
I reach for most of these Beautycounter makeup items daily. On this day, I wore Girls’ Night Classic Red here. Color Outline Eye Pencil in black here. Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer in Light here. Radiant All Over Bronzer in Surf here. Tip: I often blend the Bronzer as an eyeshadow on my orbital bone.
Shopping links may provide a small commission for me at no additional cost to you. I use my Sony Alpha a5100 camera’s timer and a tripod to take my photos.
