Having fun with pants

I think color and printed pants are a lot of fun. The only catch is making sure they don’t make you look bigger than you really are.

One little secret about any pants with pockets – make sure the pockets are placed under your rear, and the pocket size isn’t too small or too large. It will make that rear of yours more appealing. The wrong placement of pockets can lead to your booty looking flat, wide, and sometimes longer than it really is. If you are nervous about that pocket size, look for nice colored or printed pants that don’t have actual pockets at all! Problem solved.

On the front side, make sure your pockets don’t gap. There is an easy fix to this to make your pants look much more flattering. Take the pants to your favorite seamstress, and have them close your front pockets. You’ll be looking great in no time.

I have several colors and patterned pants, but one of my favorites are these red pants of mine. If red is too bold, find the color that works best for you.
