I am kind of liking RED as a bold statement color (because then I can pair any of my bajillion plain white tops with them and be done)... and here's what I found! One of these is significantly more expensive than the other, though! I LOVE the pleating details, but am not so sure about it being on the front (we all know how unflattering front-pleats are on khaki pants), but the inexpensive option has a pleat off on the side! Both have a higher waist and wide-band, which is a must for me and anyone petite, to "pull off" a wider style pant.
$375 versus $11-22
And I read the reviews, go up a size, and avoid the light colors, if you don't want to wear flesh-tone underwear or thongs. (I am pro-thong, and pro-flesh-tone-undies, so I don't have to worry about my underwear showing through the pants)
I also found these, that I am tempted to try out!
If I use my Amazon gift card for culottes or other pants, I will of course show them off and give my tips on how make them work on a shorter frame (I will likely hem any pair of culottes I buy).
Tomorrow is Fashion Friday, so keep your eyes out for that video!
