Alice and Olivia: Voted Best Pants

Pants might just be the enemy sometimes. They never seem to fit perfectly. Well have no fear, I have a designer that seems to hit the nail on the head every time.

Enter Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet. Almost all of my client’s own at least one pair of these fabulous pants (including myself). She just really seems to understand a woman’s curves, most notably, a woman’s waist. Jelly roll is never pretty. You know, the part of your stomach that hangs over your pants. Not fun. That is the genius of the Alice and Olivia design. There is a thicker waist band at the top of the pants so they never cut into you. Please see the lovely example of these black wide leg pants. Divine.

Next up, skinny red pants. Do not be scared, I know these are not for everyone. You definitely have to be on the slender side, but curves are not rejected by this style. They still feature a wonderful wide waist band, but are much more modern in the silhouette. A cinched ankle is often a tough thing to pull off, but if your leg is on the straighter side, it can be your friend. Skinny pants are great because they can be worn with any size heel. Go from super flat to ridiculously high and they will always work! I love anything with millions of styling options:) Aside from the fun style, the color of these pants is a super pop to any look. Stop wearing dark colors on the bottom and switch it up. Who said you can’t wear brights on the bottom and dark colors on the top? Try it!

Ah, leather bell bottoms. Who knew I would be suggesting these? They are the style of the season though, yes, bell bottoms are back. They are not for everyone, but if you have longer, skinnier legs, these are for you! It is very difficult to have a large flare at the bottom if you are not taller because the pants will just drag you down. They accentuate the lowest part of you, often shortening and certainly widening you. Not good. So if you are tall, have fun and go bold with a leather pair. It is never out and makes a fantastic statement when worn with any look.

So stop cursing out your pants and try on a pair of Alice and Olivia. They might just make you re-think your hatred.
