high waisted and horses

IMG_4304

I’ve never been really drawn to high waisted full leg pants, readers. But, in trying on my first pair, I decided I’m actually a long time fan. I think high waisted pants full leg pants are basically the power pants of spring, combine them with power heels and horses? I’m in high waisted and horse, warm weather, power heel heaven…

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I tried out the pants both with my blouse tucked in and then left out; I think both of the looks really worked and looked quite different. It’s nice to have a pair of pants that can be versatile, which is pretty unique for pants. So, if you’re on the fence for high waisted pants (or like me are pear shaped and are unsure if they will work), just go ahead and try them on! You may be surprised; and if not, no harm in trying!
2) Initially I thought, “hmmm red shoes, how often will I really wear them?” Answer: ALL the time. I actually tend to wear colored shoes more often than “neutral” shoes, especially with neutral pants. In a conservative work environment, colored shoes add a little fun without adding “too much” fun. Depending on what colors you wear, red or blue shoes are both great options for venturing out in to the colored shoe world. You can see how I’ve worn these heels below:

Anyone else have colored shoe tips? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers!

  1. Those red heels are so good, never thought red shoes can be styled with any outfit so beautifully. I liked the horse print & yes high waisted trousers are so beautifully fitted on you…

  2. You look amazing in high-waisted trousers; I’m still in search of the perfect pair given my short little legs. I also love your blouse; the ‘horse print’ is remarkable. I often add pops of color into my outfits through high heels. I love color blocking/matching my top to my shoes and sometimes I even match my lipstick to my shoes; its really all about having fun and being you which you seem to embrace really well.

  3. Its purrrfectttt! I love the horse prints and I have the same pear shaped apprehensions about high waisted pants but you’ve now inspired me to try them on anyway!!
    Red heels yayy! 😍😝

  4. The high waisted pant looks fabulous on you!!! I am beyond digging your blouse though…next time I come to chicago, I am totally taking you shopping to your secret thrift locations, so you can find me these awesome pieces!!!

  5. ooh, love this look! so ’70s in a very updated way! *sigh* i had red shoes for years but then when they got worn out i sadly had to throw them away. still looking for new ones to replace them, but i agree with you, red shoes can definitely be worn all the time! 😉

  6. Haven’t tried them *this* time around yet, but as I am old enough to remember at least two previous cycles of the high-waisted, full-leg pants iterations in fashion history, I can assure you that their comfort makes them well worth the trying. I made myself a fabulous high-waisted pencil skirt in the second go-round of that feature in fashion, and loved that as well for its flattery and comfort, so I’ll happily give this a shot again. One of the major benefits, for me, is that I am very short-waisted, proportionally speaking, so it’s nice to have something that draws the attention away from that very un-model-rific characteristic of my shape in a surprisingly pleasant way. 😉
