Cuffed Trousers: A Fairytale

Once upon a time, I fell in love with the pleated-front shorts and trousers look.

But that look simply isn't flattering on me. So I've just had to admire the look from afar. This is why I was extremely pleased to find a pair of cuffed trousers with a flat front at H&M last weekend. I was not even looking to buy--honest!--I only needed to make a return. But alas, these perfect-for-me pants were just jumping up and down screaming, "Try me on, Adiel!"

So I did.

And I loved them.

So they happily came home with me in place of the dress I returned.





Black blazer - F21 | Peachy-cream pocket tee - Target
Neon yellow and brown belt - H&M | Navy cuffed flat-front trousers - H&M
Vintage gold & amethyst tassel necklace - My grandmother's
Nude platform pumps - Jessica Simpson via Nordstrom
Clock ring - Etsy | Initial ring - Urban Outfitters


And we lived happily ever after.
So far.

Good story! :) These look great on you. I love pleated-front pants, too, and I keep finding ones that actually DO look good on me but I haven't let myself buy many because the pile of things I'm supposed to take to the tailor is huge at this point and I have length and butt issues.

This is such a great look! So much of the time, all it takes is a little searching and anyone can adapt virtually any trend to suit their style, lifestyle and body type.
