Having not been blessed with the world’s longest legs, but also having muscular thighs/calves – let’s just say it’s been a lifelong struggle to find proportions that flatter. I’m 5’5, which by all accounts is a fairly average height, but sadly I share the same inseam with some of my petite friends (whom I might add, are 5’2 and under). Bottoms for me have pretty much always had to be mini length, and any jeans must be cropped to right above the ankle. Anything in between (i.e. knee length skirts – cringe) just emphasizes my, muscularity, if you will – and not in a sexy way.
Enter these striped pants, and many of the wide leg pinstripe styles that I’m seeing around this fall. This style is insanely flattering, and I’m convinced that it looks good on everyone. The vertical stripes are extremely elongating, and the wide leg gives the illusion of a small waist somehow. I’ll take all the help I can get in the leg-lengthening arena. Can we also talk about the booty? From petite to robust, all butts will be flattered in these. Shop them below!
