A Fall Trend I Simply Cannot Participate In.

As you know from yesterday's post, I'm really looking forward to Fall. I was pleasantly surprised to see I'm not the only one! :)


However, when I saw Piperlime's latest email, I about died when I saw one of their idea's for next season's trend...

What's going on here?

Will you participate in this?

Am I missing something? I don't find this flattering..? I do love the skinny, cropped pant with heels, but the cargo pockets on the side kill me a little on the inside. Aren't we always going for a streamlined look down the leg? Yes?

Thoughts?

Happy Tuesday!

I personally detest cargo pants in general, but unless you are actually that model in the photographs, you should avoid them at all possible costs. This looks like the kind of trend that would flatter absolutely no one.

It has been so miserably hot in Dallas lately that I can definitely say that I am ready for fall and cooler weather to arrive! I am not, however, ready for skinny cargo pants. As you pointed out, the pockets on the sides of the pants really do defeat the purpose of creating a skinny leg look. I am petite and there is no way I can pull this fall trend off. Unless you are model height, I don’t see how this could be flattering.

'Skinny Cropped Cargo Pant'. Hmmm...I'm not really sure that those words should ever be in the same phrase. Definitely NOT participating in this trend.

Personally, I cant even think about Fall yet...we have two months and a half left of summer and I plan to enjoy them to the maximum!
Bring me that bikini!!!!!!

PS: on a side note, Im not a huge fan of cargo pants with pockets on the sides either...

oh skinny legs, where art thou?

*shudder* You're so right.

I'll tell you exactly what it is. Gap does this sometimes, unfortunately. They take one idea (e.g., the skinny pant or jean) and run it into the ground. Distressed. Extraneous pockets. Crazy colors. Yes! Let's do it. These American girls will just eat it up and feel so avant garde.

Faux.

Heck no! There's no way that I will ever be seen in skinny cargo pants.
