Hey curvy girls:
Have you ever found yourself saying this, “That won’t look right on me.” At one time or another we have all been discouraged to participate in fashion trends due to the model in the ad. She is slim and the article of clothing just drapes her body like she was a tall hanger. You think to yourself, oh, I can’t wear that. My hips are too big, my butt is too big, or, you say, that’s for skinny people. I have been an offender of using these lines when shopping, but, I always stop myself and say, just try it on, you never know. Forget the tall blonde hanger in the ad.
Last week Loft unveiled advertisement for their new silk cargos (tall blonde hanger included) and Facebook fans wrote in asking the retailer to show pictures of real bodies rocking the silk cargos. Loft accepted the challenge and emerged victoriously with photos of their employees, sizes 2-12 wearing the slim looking silk cargos according to their personal styles and fans loved it. This goes to show that women want to see more ads with bodies that they can relate to.
This spring/summer season, the hottest pants to wear are cropped cargos, pleated harem pants, and slouchy jogging pants. Below are a few of these trendy pants that I think every curvy girl should try and not dismiss.
Not sure how to style these quirky looks? A blazer and gladiator sandals will give these pants a polished look.
