Happy Monday ladies! Today I wanted to share a simple idea on how to wear a paper bag waist garment. I made this skirt with 2 different pair of men's dress pants that my husband no longer wanted. It was done without a pattern and I barely had enough fabric to complete it. LOL! But, it worked somehow. I love pin stripes and the linen material is light enough for Spring and Summer, yet the thicker and darker panels make this look wear-able for Fall also, which is nice.
Read below for some tips on this look!
Skirt: designed by me
1. A statement necklace is a great way to add a touch of glamour to this very neutral look.
2. Paper bag waists are hard to wear and a lot of women are shy to try the waist out, but they look best worn with fitted tops or shirts tucked in. Avoid wearing bulky and flowing tops with paper bag waists.
3. Vertical stripes are a short girl's best friend. If you are petite, I highly recommend this type of look to add length and a shorter hemline also helps as well.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!
