fashion is instant language
Hey fellow fashion style moguls? How you doing?(Uses Wendy Williams’ voice and hand gesture). What are carrot pants? Are they for everyone?
That is the million dollar question we ask ourselves when we come across this little number. As the name suggests, carrot pants are shaped like a carrot, wide at the top and tapered towards the bottom, rather like harem pants, but not as baggy. They are a trendy women’s style this season, and I’ve been seeing some fashion forward men’s lines doing them as well especially in the West.
Are they for every body type? To be frank, they are really not a girl’s best friend and can be pretty tricky to wear, as they tend to mostly look good on tall, skinny women. They consist of pleats that help create volume through the hips. A slimmer cut, and sometimes a sewn-down pleat at the hem, narrows the pants toward the ankle.
Because the style adds width where most women would rather look slimmer, it is a tricky style to pull off. However, the beauty about fashion is how you style it! Carrot pants can make your legs look short and thick, so the best thing to do is to wear them with heels, the higher the better.
Try choosing fitted tops and blouses when wearing these pants in order to balance the outfit – the fullness of the pants can make your silhouette overly baggy. When it comes to accessorizing, keep things as simple as possible and voila!!! I decided to style mine with strapped stilettos and a brown pull neck top for a smart causal vibe. What do you think?
Stay fashionable, stay stylish and be s fashion style mogul!
