It probably doesn’t seem like it happens very often, but some times, I wear pants. Now isn’t that a riveting revelation. I just noticed of all my work wear and outfit posts there is maybe two of my wearing pants. Leggings yes, but pants, no. Strange isn’t it how you get a preference and just go for it.  Day after day after day skirts and dresses. I just feel less dressed up in pants. Even with sky high heels on, it just feels casual somehow. Dressed down. And the days I wear flats, all bets are off. Expect casual Friday type behaviour.

I was thinking about it just now and I blame my parents. As you do. Never one to weigh in on our clothes {unless modesty was at risk, eeek!} my Dad would lavish praise on us girls when we were dressed up to go out {usually wearing dresses}. My mother, she doesn’t mind the odd skirt, but I think the eighties power suit skirt, camisole and jacket combo did her in a bit. She hardly ever wears dresses. So when she did, she looked so different, so special occasion, so lovely! See. For me dresses and skirts mean praise and loveliness, is it any wonder I prefer them? Kids brains are weird sponge like things, don’t you think!?

But enough of that, down to the nitty gritty, tell me do you prefer pants or skirts and dresses?

  • I much prefer pants. Skirts feel so dressed up for me and dresses…wedding material!!! LOL I do wear skirts abit more often now than I used to though. Cooler for summer. Bt after being out in my ‘going out’ clothes I always come home and put on my oldest, daggiest pants and singlet top. I think must be a far girl at heart:)

    Im a major skirt girl. Pants highlight every negative thing about me and hide anything good. I’m happy in my skirts and use leggings under skirts to get the pant-effect!

    You look good in pants, Suger. x

    pants, pants, PANTS!!!!!!

    i own 2 skirts and i’ve never wear them. i own 3 dresses and i’ve never worn any of them either. i don’t feel comfy in them. in fact if you want me to be honest i feel girly/feminine in them and most of the time i don’t feel feminine or girly, so don’t wish to wear something that conveys the image of being a girl/woman. i know that probably sounds weird and most people won’t get it but i just don’t feel right in them. the odd time i have worn a dress or skirt [years & years ago] i didn’t feel like me – same reason i don’t wear high heels.

    i live in pants. from work, to bumming round the house, to going out.

    now i’m thinking about it, it’s just weird, *sigh* i’m a freak – though this is not news to me LOL

    Maxabella is right, you look gooooooooooooooood in pants! in fact, you’re like Danimezza, you look bloody good in practically everything you wear – cow! 😛 jk jk


    • Haha. I knew you’d say that! Trust Suger, just like the stripes, let your inner girlie out. 😉

    I wear pants alot, because it is ‘socially acceptable’ for women of my size to be wearing jeans 99% of the time. But!!! – Having said that, I now have 4 casual dresses, 1 dressy-dress, and 5 skirts, though all my skirts are mid-calf or longer.

    It is my mission this year to learn how to dress my body shape (while trying to lose weight! ugh!) without wearing jeans and tshirts all the time, but still being comfortable enough to walk everywhere I need to go (which is why heels arent a big thing in my wardrobe…)

    • Stuff socially acceptable! I promise, you’ll enjoy dressing etc SO much more if you forget that and dress for you.

      I’m happy to help if you want to email me a pic & give you my two cents. xo

  • “Sometimes I wear pants”
    Gee, I wear pants all the time. Every day.
    oh, wait, you weren’t talking about underpants….
    Ha Ha.
    Well, I do wear pants every day, black for work, jeans or shorts on the weekends.

    Love the Virtu blouse, I have to get back to the site and look for that and the denim jacket.
    I’ve never liked leggings as pants. To me, they’d be something I’d wear under the pants in winter for extra warmth.

    • Haha! When I saw the title I thought the same thing. Errr, does that sound like underwear..? Apparently, yup!

      Good luck on the site, there’s some great stuff on sale at the moment.

    Skirts & dresses!!!! My three pairs of pants include 2x pjs & 1 pr leggings for the see through skirts…
    I used to be a pants girl but on realization that pants draw attention to the crotch area has turned me off and now only wear dresses/skirts. pants/shorts feel naked to me now :s
    I love the feminity that it has created within me, the softness it has drawn out of me and how it’s even changed the way my hubby approaches me like I’m a soft gentle feminine female who needs caring for

    • This is lovely! Glad you’ve discovered this about yourself. And the crotch thing, I HAD to laugh. Really!? I’d never thought of it like that.

  • I am a pure dress/skirt girl. I think I’ve worn pants about 20 times- ever. And 19 of those times were while we were travelling in the UK cold lol 😉
