You can! Its all about balance and working with other pieces that fit your body type. With the right pieces, youll be able to pull off one of this seasons hottest trends in no time. My first pair of gauchos came freshman year of college and I looked a hot mess in them because I didnt know how to balance the pants out. Way too tight and frilly on top and bad color choice. Rookie mistake. But I mean, I cant beat myself up too much. My choice in gauchos was me really going out on a limb, breaking away from my traditional Abercrombie tee and low-rise jeans with Jack Purcell look. Im proud to say that this time around, Ive done much better. Top and Pants: Zara (pants, similar top) Shoes: Marc Fisher (similar) Purse: Phillip Lim for Target (similar) Earrings: French Cuff Consignment (similar) Lipstick Shade: Diva by MAC I decided to use black as my anchor color since the pants were such a bold choice. Because its still so warm here in California (like 90 degrees warm), I wore a short sleeve funnel neck top, but this is the perfect base for layering and is a great go-to once it cools down a bit. A moto jacket, sleeveless trench or duster coat would work fabulously as an outer layer when the time comes. With a high neck top, you always want to have something to accent your chest. Since I chose a crossbody bag, I didnt want a necklace getting in the way. In comes the tassel earring, with just enough flair to fancy up the look. Now the most important part. What about the shoes? Im wearing a kitten heel, but how about a bootie or a loaferor even a fun sneaker? They are everywhere right now from Target to Nordstrom, so you should have no issues finding them maybe issues choosing which color! If youre on the petite side, I urge you to wear a heel. A flat shoe may have you look like youre swimming in your gaucho pants.
