Styling Tie Waist Pants

The tie waist pants trend.

Have you tried it yet?!

When I first saw this trend rising, I immediately thought “there is no way those will look good on me”. I’m 5’4 and the last thing I need is a baggier pant to make me look shorter & wider! All the petite girls out there know exactly what I’m talking about!

Well, if there is one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s to at least TRY everything. And I’m so glad I tried these cute olive green tie waist pants on when I did. I love the way they fit and they are so comfortable! (No joke, it’s like wearing pajamas!)

When styling these pants, I went with the same approach as when I style and wear baggier boyfriend jeans. If the bottom half of your wardrobe is a little bit bigger, bulkier or loose fitting, I go with a smaller, lighter or tighter top. (i.e. a bodysuit). You can also choose a lighter more open top like I did above with this one shoulder ruffled blouse and just tuck it in.

Since the tie waist bow tie is bigger on these pants, I wanted to make sure I tucked in my shirt to show my waistline, which in turn shows more of a figure and doesn’t make me look huge.

Make sense?!

The great thing about the fabric of these pants is that I was easily able to roll them up to the length I liked. I added these cute strappy heels (under $35!) to give me a little extra height as well, which in turn also elongates us short girls legs!

I still can’t get over how cute, delicate and pretty this protective eye necklace is. I’ve worn it so many times and I just love the length! Its 18K gold plating, so it doesn’t tarnish and you can choose between a blue Swarovski crystal or a white one. My friends at Katie Dean Jewelry are nice enough to be giving all of you 20% off with code “ashleyd20”. Enjoy!

As with every trend that’s new and upcoming, don’t be afraid to at least give it a try. You just never know what new piece might surprise you!
