I promise I’m not piling on – I promise, and that’s why I’m not showing the face here of this very famous fashion person. But……
that said, you wonder why we have bad ideas or concepts or modeling of how clothes are supposed to fit, and you look at these pants on this gall, and here’s a great reason. Folks this gal is thin beyond measure, but she’s not wearing well-fitted pants, and 1.) she can afford them and 2.) that makes it even worse!
These are the folks who are in charge of telling how clothes should fit, and if they fit like this, then how are we supposed to know what’s good, proper or for that matter what we like.
It’s like we’re all pre-programed to think that our clothes should be so tight that cause wrinkling – that is NOT a good fit. It never has been and I don’t care how many pants you buy or where you buy them or how many you try on and you have just a slight variation from the standard sizing (that includes just about all of us), they’ll wrinkle. And when they do, with this (above) as your reference, you’ll think they fit.
This isn’t a good fit. It’s too tight. It’s a look for that moment and the successive pictures were not that flattering at all.
Here’s the kicker – men don’t put up with this mess, and their pants fit (I’m talking about the model of the pant) well. They don’t wrinkle or are warped or stretched to the Nth degree – they fit.
Granted it’s hard to see this when you are making up pants, but realize that the picture at the top is not only not a good fit, for almost 90% of the public it’s not a good look and it shouldn’t be something you’re aiming for.
Now, this is as much a habit as it is engrained into our psyche, so you will have to purposely look for this when you are fitting your pants. And there’s help coming. Pleated pants are returning – it will take a while to get here, but they are coming back. I know I can hear it now: “Claire I will NEVER wear anything like that – it’s way too baggy!” Well, that may be, but they’re coming back and that’s nice cause if your pants hang right, then they are ultra-fabulous.
Might as well get your pants to fit right now, cause even though the stretch-till-your-face-turns-blue pants are on their way out!!!!
