Okay, so sometimes I don't always choose the most flattering outfits for my body type. These joggers for instance? They look way better on a slim straight (rectangle) figure. But fashion is all about taking risks.Sometimes it's about going out in public in an outfit you thought was brilliant and original, only to feel super self-conscious about it an hour later. Sometimes it's about the push and pull of risk-taking and learning the hard way what suits your style and what makes you feel good and what makes you truly look good.
But I get such a thrill out of planning new outfits.
When I was younger I used to set out my school outfit every night before bed. I remember trying on item after item until there was a final "no" pile stacked on my closet floor. There were days when I went to school and I knew that I was beaming with confidence because I felt good. Other times, I shrunk in my first period seat as I realized the combo just wasn't working for me.
In fact, this happened just the other day! I made the terrible, but often overlooked, mistake of wearing a dark bra under a white shirt. In my mirror at home it looked great! The lighting was just dull enough to conceal my obvious misfortune. Once I got under the florescent lights at the retail store where I worked, my undergarments told another story. I ended up buying another shirt just so I didn't feel uncomfortable approaching customers with my arms folded across my chest.
Anyway, what I am getting at is you can dress for your body type all you want, but unless you feel great, it doesn't matter! Wearing these dark wash joggers from Madison & Sixth made me feel at home. I was comfortable. While wearing them I felt confident and cute without all the glamour usually required for a lunch date.
Sometimes you just need to find that sweet sport between classy and comfy that suits you, and wear it.
