Long time no post - somehow life got busy, and I became a lurker.... perhaps this post will delurk me somewhat?
I LOVE wide-leg jeans, but so far just on everyone else. I've also been wanting some white jeans, but not really white, just white-ish... So two months ago, I bought the Old Navy slim wide legs in a light wash. They arrived this week, and I immediately disliked them. They aren't truly a solid, they have a subtle stripe, they looked huge, and well, I didn't like them...
But then I opened the package, just to try them on to confirm my dislike, and became less sure. They're definitely widening... but I think I like the color (though maybe a little lighter would be better?), and I think they fit properly (I sized up, because my waist is quite thick, and they're high-waisted).
#1-10 Are few of the ways I thought of to try to style them. I'm not sure that any of them work, what do you think? How do you suggest styling them? Or should I hold out to try a different pair? I can be patient.
#1 light blue floral, navy suede "jean" jacket
#2 dark blue big shirt - this doesn't seem JFE to me.
#3 orange shirt semi-tucked
#4 light weight woven blouse, tucked in.
#5 with black sweater. I liked this high contrast better than I expected to.
#6 column of color (cream knit top). I'd probably add a high-contrast topper?
#7 sideways to show fit (and, uh, my round tummy)
#8-9 with red print woven top, trying out a light sweater over it?
#10 same light blue top as in #1, different topper
#11 is WIW today - a lazy Saturday, super-casual sweatshirt and jeans.
