I'm a really big fan of printed pants right now, but I also find them a tricky style to pull off, a. because I have short legs, and b. because my thighs aren't twig-like.
The last thing I want to do is look more stubby. Here are a few tricks I've found for rocking the printed pant trend even without the ideal set of gams.
1. Fit: get the right fit. I prefer a trouser over a skinny pant. I feel like they are more universally flattering. Not too tight, not too loose. Finding a great fit is tricky for me right now because my post-partum body is a bit disproportioned but I have faith that soon my hips to waist ratio will even itself out again and buying pants won't be such a nightmare. If you are in the same boat, don't be afraid to tailor your pants. A good alteration is worth every penny if it makes your clothes more wearable.
