I could not figure out how to wear this shirt! I've been wearing loose tunic tops with skinny jeans for so long that I'm rusty on how to wear other shapes. It's cropped and fitted, so it needed high waist bottoms that hit the bottom of the shirt. Thankfully it was the perfect match when these pants arrived in the mail yesterday. You can wear the ruffle two ways, and I went with the more subdued option (bottom picture) since the pants have so much volume. These pants are not as flattering looking at them straight on (sneaky they don't show that on the model!) but they are comfortable, a great price and work-appropriate even though they are trendy. For me they are a definite keeper!
