Try Hard


These pants are jazz hands amazing (pause for sparkle fingers) so it's kind of surprising I have such a hard time styling them. I think maybe a short-sleeve sweater? Any suggestions?

Jenn, I try to just stick to the ole, loose pants, tight top, tight pants loose top. Looks great...your pants are jazzy and I love your necklace and shoes too. Check Anthro, I swear you could model for them. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

Ooooooh very jazzy pants indeed! I love them! And I think this looks great. I understand that they would be tricky to style. Proportions wise, I think tighter tops are probably safer, but I'm sure that a tailored button down (slightly loose) might look great too! Happy styling!

Sparkle fingers...ha!!!
You and your long legs and cool blue platforms look killer in those pants!! I, on the other hand, would look like I was wearing my grandma's pajamas!!

I have no idea how to style your pants, but I love your shoes! (Jazz hands!) Wait, brown blazer? Red sweater?

Oh how I have waited for it. It was worth the wait! I like the pants with the shirt and shoes you are wearing. It looks comfy and put together at the same time. :)

LOVE these pants! I think you styled them well! I'm not sure what else to put with them, but they are quite an awesome pair of pants!

So glad you understand jazz hands...I've been screaming "MORE SPARKLE" at my high school-ers for the past 6 weeks of rehearsals :D

LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE these pants, my idea is give them to me :) Otherwise try styling them with a tucked in chiffon button down and fun belt, or with a tunic-style top belted over at the waist, or with a tee and a thick funky scarf.

oooh, I love them! You're so on trend with your printed pants. I'm seeing them everywhere lately. I think they'd be cute with a bright colored tee or tank. But then that's my solution for everything... pair it with a bright color! lol

Your pants are thrifted??? Amazing! I love them and I think you styled them perfectly. When it gets a bit warmer, maybe a tighter tank top tucked into them? With a fun, colorful skinny belt? And those shoes. You should just always wear those fabulous shoes...

Love how you styled these jazz-hand-worthy pants. You look fab. OY, those shoes, dying.

You could wear a blouse half tucked in front with a leather jacket and booties!

Oh my gosh! Amazing pants! I'm boring, so I would have thrown on a black, three-quarter length sleeve sweater tee with a banded hem...and let the pants and shoes speak for themselves.

Great look!

Hannah @ Tattoos and Pearls said...

oh my goodness! I love these pants! I think you can wear them a number of ways: a bright top to add some more color, a leather jacket, a chambray top tied at the bottom or maybe a large stripe!

I freaking love those pants. I spent this bedridden day hazing in and out of seeking the ultimate rayon printed pair. Victory will be mine. With a cropped sweater!

Jenava said...

You rock these pants! What about a denim shirt? Striped black and white tee for some patter mixing?

gleeps said...

You don't appear to have any styling issues whatsover! I agree with Jenava - maybe a denim shirt knotted at the waist with these pants?

I've been thinking of getting some pants with graphic prints on them as well, but haven't been able to pull the trigger. I think a loose ivory or white tee with maybe dolman sleeves and a boatneck could go great.

Nicely done.... i like how you have styled these.
When wearing them again I'd try a longer top. Maybe a longer tank ? and that same pretty necklace.
I like how you threw in color with small details.
