My friend Nat always says that orange and grey are great friends; she wrotethat you can buy over here. Pair them together and have the entire world make sense. Add a print or some texture, and you’ve got yourself an outfit. The creators of the shirt call it Tangerine. I’m someone who’s skin tone suits orange, the more neon, the better. My Dad always said it was true and like most willful young people I told him to mind his beeswax.
The colour is a show stopper, right?
But what I want to talk about is the white pants.
The shredded white denim joggers.
THEY always say that fat people shouldn’t wear white pants. Plus size white pants are a no-no. Worse even than leggings as pants for some. White is unforgiving and will show all your flaws. You shouldn’t wear white pants unless you have a but like JLo. Or so they say. But THEY said not to wear stripes either or mini skirts or ankle boots… And we all know how much I didn’t listen to that! But just like stripes there are some tips to making white pants work. I’ve got your back. Let’s talk white pants.
How to make white pants work on your plus-sized butt;
- Make sure they fit! If they fit, they won’t be squishing you where they shouldn’t. This goes for all pants, but particularly when it comes to white ones. I love these joggers because they slouch. In the size 22, my normal size, they gave just enough to sit and slouch beautifully. Skinny jeans in white are super stylish, but they won’t work for everyone. A jogger or more relaxed pant will.
- Make sure the quality of the fabric is good. The problem with white pants and people with genuine butts is that we have lumps and bumps and imperfections. If the fabric is a decent quality then, it will cover these in a way that a lighter, less quality fabric won’t.
- Don’t sit, ever. Today my Mum was wearing a pair of adorable white capris. My nephew Ashton had a mouth, hand and face full or strawberry and all the dreamy juices. Mum wrapped herself in a towel to avoid getting covered in stains then sat on a chair where Ashton had wiped his hands earlier… Cue strawberry butt stains. So short version, try not to sit, ever. Or buy some Napisan. Haha.
- And last but not least buy some pants, pull them on and go for it. You are much too cool to listen to what anyone else thinks about you or your style. Go get ’em Tiger!
