I was reading FabSugar Community member JoyofShopping's post on OnSugar blog Beauty and the Budget, when I realized that she and I share a genius styling idea. She wrote: "I bought this skirt from a local thrift shop; I couldn't get over that thick, velvety corduroy! It's about 4 sizes too big for me, so I took this as an opportunity to play around with a paper bag waist." Smart. I've done the same with a black skirt I own that's two sizes too large. You can paperbag oversize jeans and trousers as well. It's a quick way to snazzy-up your style, plus it'll make the fit of your garment more flattering to your body.
High-waist pants that have a gathered waistband, usually tied by a sash or belt made of the same fabric. The term originated because this new style of pant looks like the top of a paper bag. Skirts can also have the same paperbag-like detail. The moniker isn't appealing, but paperbag pants look great on tall girls who seek a comfortable androgynous look.
Get tied up with this Rag & Bone Paperbag Pant ($295).
