Add A Full Crop Top

Your shirt hem is high enough to show the top of the trousers, so there’s still a bit of nipped-in waist going on. And the top is loose enough that the look is cool and elegant.

High Waisted FTW

Your midsection is defined by the tailoring on top of the pants, so you don’t have the dreaded tummy pooch effect. Tuck in your sweater or blouse so everyone can see that yes, you do have a waistline.

Wear with a Blouse and Bustier

A little layering is in order: The big shirt is all billowing like the pants, but a wide belt or bustier defines your waist.

Wide Leg Black Trousers

Basic Black is the Gateway Look

A modest proposal: Trade in your skinny jeans for a pair of black wide-leg trousers and see if you’re not suddenly more chic. And a thousand times more comfortable.

Get the look: Topshop ($100); J. Crew ($118); Tibi pants ($575)
