You might be wondering… hmm is this a DYI post? Will I need a paper bag to make these pants? What if I only have plastic bags? Haha ! No, in all seriousness, this is a style of pant that is showing to be quite popular right now. Just remember, a trend is just that and may not be for everyone, but if you like to try something new and are a pant- wearer, these might be for you.
You may be familiar with high waist pants, as they rise higher on the waist and can also create therefore, a long length to the leg. Paper bag waist pants are higher on the waist and cinched like a paper bag. ( thank Goodness I am not referring to the material, right? They usually scrunch at the waist and are tied together with a ribbon/belt. They’re chic, elegant,” This waist style is also on skirts, culouttes, and most commonly a trouser. I do love the style, and they would also create a fresh look in the workplace amid tailored trousers and pencil skirts.
I have my eye on a pair from Mango, and olive green that would work well year round. Some paper bag pants have a cropped bottom, others more of a tailored cut, it really depends on what style you are looking for and the shoe you might wear with them as well.
So. Now. You bought the pants, as you too love the style and the next question you ask is ” What do I wear with these?”
Because of the waist material and leg length, you want to wear something that is more fitted or streamlined on top. A fitted blouse would be the style of choice as you want to be able to see the waist and not have anything bulky on top. I love seeing these pants styled with a heel, ( any height) as it gives the leg even more length due to the style.
( Love these^)
Now that Fall is around the bend, think paper bag waist pants, slim turtleneck and booties.. Tuck in a soft slim tee and wear a cropped jacket over top. This waistline will be comfortable and also stylish! Proportion is key here, so layering is not necessary and would add too much volume.
As I mentioned, the waist style is trending right now, but if you are not a pant wearer, why not look for a paper bag waist pencil skirt to try it out. 🙂
