Hello…..last Monday in September .

As a girl, originally from the Midwest, I miss the first days of Fall weather arriving in September,  complete with changing leaves,comfy sweaters and cooler air that makes one long for a  warm cup of coffee.

Fall is such a beautiful time of year and it serves as a  lovely reminder that CHANGE can be good…

 

I hope the week ahead will be productive, purposeful and filled with a sense of accomplishment in all you endeavor. Work hard and BELIEVE that anything is possible…because it is!

Here’s to a wonderful week ahead.

The Paperbag Pant..DISCUSS

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Leather Cropped Pant by Marissa Webb $795.00 Intermix.com

Are you familiar with the  new Paper bag pant for Fall 2019?

It’s a new pant trend with a silhouette that cinches at the waist and is often combined with pleating and or gathers below the belt.  The belt can vary in  terms of width, length and of course buckle treatment.The construction of this pant allows for comfort  while at the same time makes your waist appear SMALLER!  Your basic win-win.

As with all things in fashion there should be a few rules to be mindful of when one decides to give this pant a spin:

  1. When opting for pleats or gathers on any pant, choose one where the pant still looks sleek and tailored. You don’t want too many gathers or pleats – which tend to give the appearance of having a  belly pooch.
  2. Paper bag pants come in any number of fabrications and lengths. Choose one that is right for you.  For example:  If you’re petite -opt for a more slimming style that hugs your frame.
  3. 7 for all Mankind Paper bag Pant @ Saks Fifth Avenue On sale $119.40 (Originally: $199.00)

3.If you’re tall and thin -feel free to opt for a baggy paper bag pant however, always and I do mean ALWAYS keep your outfit proportional. If what your wearing on the bottom is baggy keep your top detail close to the body to achieve a silhouette that looks pulled together.
