How to wear burgundy pants

I have to say, that my body (especially the lower half) has not always been something that I was proud of or happy about. Growing up, my parents put me through gymnastics, figure skating, ballet and my mom claims that’s why my legs are not that skinny and my butt is… well big. Of course, I don’t always have a consistent exercise routine and tend to eat junk, so as I get older, that really doesn’t help my body get into shape, so I don’t think my upbringing can be the whole cause. I’ve always had body image issues, and my weight has fluctuated a ton, but as I grow older, I am starting to learn to be more confident with my body and only find clothes that can flatter it.So from my experience of having a curvy bottom, I wanted to share a few tips that I have found that have worked for me in finding pants that fit.

I have recently discovered Liverpool Jeans and have fallen in love with their pants and jackets. Their ponte knit leggings are great for work and casual, their jeans are super high quality and their jackets are on trend. Also, everything is under $100!!

For my first outfit, I went with the Quinn Tatersol Plaid Legging. These are black with red plaid and they are so fun for the holidays. They are pull on style with elastic waistband and faux pockets. These pants are such great as leggings so that boots can fit over them and for casual outfits, but you can totally dress them up with a nice pair of heels and a blouse. I paired it with a floral top, a denim zip jacket for warmth, and a great pair of booties. These are a mid-rise, which I have chosen as a rise that will work for me.

For look #2, I am wearing the Aiden “Hugger” Skinny pant in Wine color. These are just a great pair of jeans and I am so happy to add a pop of color in pants to my wardrobe. I also tend to go towards skinny styles as I think they work best with booties and knee highs for the winter and my leg shape. I was getting stuck in a rut with denim / blue colored jeans lately so happy to add this to my wardrobe. These ran a bit long, so I just rolled them up!

And lastly, I decided to dress up the Quinn Metallic Plaid Pull-On Legging (which is a similar pant to the first style). I wore it with a nice top, a fabulous fur cape and jeweled pumps! This look might be one of my faves and I just love the way the pants look and feel! These are also mid-rise which like I said before, is a rise that I go towards.

A Guide To Finding Pants That Fit

  1. Know Your Body Shape – Whether you are curvy, all around skinny, hourglass, athletic, knowing your body shape will certainly help you find the perfect pant. There’s so many different cuts out there like skinny, bootcut, flare and knowing your body can help find your cut.
  2. Find Your Rise – Post 2 babies, my muffin top is NOT going away. So high rise and mid-rise leggings and jeans are my BEST friends. I absolutely can’t wear low rise anymore, but definitely when I had a flatter belly I could ha!
  3. Fabric Matters – Some materials have stretch, some don’t. Some pants shrink with wash, some don’t. It all depends on the material!
  4. Don’t Be Afraid To Size Up or Size Down – And honestly, with all the different brands out there, you don’t need to stick to ONE number. Usually if pants have a lot of stretch or I know they will get looser with wear, I tend to size down or buy true to size.If pants or jeans don’t have much stretch, I size up!
  5. Find A Tailor (For Back Up) – I rarely have to use a tailor for my pants, but it’s not out of the question. I usually just use them for taking in some length, like if the pants are dragging on the ground even with heels.

    That second pair are beautiful, what a nice colour! I agree it can be so hard finding pants that fit. There’s one brand that always fits me so I tend to stick with them for pretty much everything, haha!

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a great week! 🙂 Not long until Christmas!

    Great tips! Pants are always a challenge. It’s hard to buy online because I always wantt to try them all and if I do order online, I am keeping my fingers crossed that they fit =)

    The dark pink trousers look great with the denim jacket and leopard print top. I often have problems with jeans because most are cut too narrow on the thighs for me. If I go a size larger they gape at the waist. Elastane is my saviour!

    My whole life I have struggles with pants. I was too tall for regular pants and then the waist was to big and I was always happy. Finally now I am finding pants that fit better and I love!

    All these pants fit you amazing!! Thanks for sharing!

    I found this post really interesting. I never wore pants/trousers until just over 3 years ago as I was a skirts/dresses only person.
    It took me a long time to get used to wearing trousers and I felt very self conscious at how I looked in them at first. I have avoided jeans so far as I am not keen on the image but my daughter and friends keep trying to persuade me to change my stance and I might try some in 2017

    Great advice! I so agree with the importance of knowing your own body type. I struggled for longer than I care to admit buying pants that were meant for the body type I wanted, not the one I had! 😉 Thanks for linking up to Funtastic Friday!
