Turtlenecks & Trousers

Despite only owning a few pairs of trousers, I love the way they look with turtlenecks. It’s a nice change from what I usually wear, which is high waisted jeans every day of the week. This past fall and winter I have worn an excessive amount of turtlenecks and with spring being just as cold as winter, I don’t think it’s going to change anytime soon. My sister even said to me, “you don’t need to wear turtlenecks with everything”, to which I then responded actually I do. It has been extremely cold in Canada so turtlenecks are one of the few pieces of clothing that keeps me warm during this weather. They are also very easy to match with because it’s such a simple piece.

If you’re thick like me, then you’ve definitely experienced the struggle of wanting to find pants that fit loosely in the legs but still tight enough in the waist. If you have experienced this, then these are the pants you have been searching for. They are perfect because they emphasize and conceal all the right places. They make my waist look smaller, butt look bigger, and my legs look less like sausages.

These pants are a really good piece to have because they are flattering and can easily be dressed up or down. If you have a casual occasion you can throw on a solid colour hoodie or turtleneck like I’ve done, and some sneakers. For more dressy occasions, you can still do a turtleneck but dress it up with booties. I always opt for the more casual look because I have nowhere to go and because dressier looks usually mean less comfortable clothing. No one can argue with me that booties are more comfortable or even just as comfortable as sneakers. To wrap up the look I chose a faux leather motorcycle jacket that I always wear when the weather is not freezing cold, but still cold enough that you need a mildly warm jacket.
