You know how you used to wear one pair of jeans for 4 months straight and buy 20 different shirts to match them up with? Well, pants are the new shirts. This season, in my humble opinion, its all about the bottoms, which is kind of fun- but a little annoying because bottoms are generally more expensive than tops.
My go to for early fall are these super thin t-shirts from Club Monaco in black or white with a bunch of different bottoms. Jeans in bright colors, and of course, the title of this post: trousers. And we all know that Zara has the all time best trousers. (I found some good ones at Topshop too.)
A little inspiration:
High waisted and flared:
Zara = Perfect: I need to find out who makes these ASAP, although there is basically no way to find them, they are from pinterest from a tumblr= lost source.
Wool + camel, very yummy for fall.

It’s not a secret that high waisted baggy pants can make you look fat. Trousers are a little tricky, but if you get them right, they look so damned cool.
So here is my advice:
1. This is not the time to try to squeeze into a size 2. Buy the size that fits you please. The pants will cut you in the wrong spot and you will have double stomach pooch if you buy them two small. And thats not even getting into how bad tight, high pants will look on your butt. Plus, they are supposed to look a little baggy and if you do lose those 5 pounds they will look better bigger.
2. If you are wearing them with flats, cuff them above the ankle. If you are wearing wide leg version, wear with heels unless you are very tall.
3. The look is tailored and casual at the same time, but plan on tucking in your shirt.
4. Im not sure, but I think that surprisingly, the ones that are wider at the hips and taper in at the ankle are the easiest to pull off- as opposed to wide leg or cigarette leg.
My mom cant believe I’m wearing high waisted everything these days (after years of teasing her), but honestly- HOW MUCH BETTER DO YOU FEEL WHEN EVERYTHING IS TUCKED IN, as opposed to hanging out?
Im just so happy to own some pants that arent made out of denim or spandex.
