Day 22 – Oops I did it again!February 26, 2010
In this post, I really wanted to talk about the Boyfriend Blazer, and how versatile it can be – from dressing up some jeans to jazzing up your business casual attire. However, if you’ll look at the pants length, I have once again made a huge fashion faux pas.
Boyfriend Blazer: Banana Republic $4.69
Teal Tunic: Ann Taylor $2.29
Pants: Eddie Bauer $1.99
Boots: Nine West $18
Total Cost: $26.97
I feel like I’m back in 7th grade.
7th grade was a pivotal time in my life. Upon returning back to school after summer vacation, I immediately noticed that there was something different about all the other girls. They had changed. They seemed taller, bigger, more mature. They were wearing make-up, carrying purses and wearing bras because they had boobs.
It was like they had all gone off to “How to Be a Girl Camp” and came back with all this new information about things that I didn’t even know existed.
Me? I had spent the summer like I always did – climbing trees and catching tadpoles.
With my recent outfits, I feel I’m right back there in 7th grade – everyone knows all these things about fashion that I wasn’t even aware of! Where have I been when all these fashion rules were made? How could I have been so unaware?
Today’s topic is pants length. And for all of you who were like me, unaware of the the current fashion standards, I have done some research by trial-and-error, and I can bring back some information for you. In other words, I feel like I have attended “What is the Proper Pants Length” camp.
Here’s what I’ve learned from the always helpful, kind supportive women at You Look Fab:
– Skinny legs however, are different. Hems that taper cannot skim the surface of the ground – so we allow them to scrunch a little at the ankle instead.

So it’s back to my closet to re-evaluate my pants collection. No wonder why I wear skirts all the time. Pants are complicated.
Several people have commented how difficult it is in winter to wear pants this long in the winter. Any thoughts?
