When these babies caught my attention I almost passed on them. The fabric is amazing and the workmanship is so high end, but they are very very high waisted and up until that point I had worn only low slung jeans and trousers for years, carefully perfecting the art of crouching without exposing an undergarment, collecting a rainbow of extra long tank tops. The very presence of these pants in in my closet seemed like treason.
Cropped blazers are an interesting animal because they are so stylish yet so elusive to coordinate anything with. With trousers they seem messy (the tops of blouses always seem to look like they are trying desperately to escape ) and with jeans they look too…Taylor Swift-ish (Is that a term?) …way too young in a direction I don’t want to go in.
But, I soon discovered, they are a perfect companion for high waisted pants, which I now have.
BTW- My students were big fans of my shoes today. One commented that they look like something Lady GaGa would wear. I am still debating whether this is a compliment.
