Lookin like a fool with your pants on the ground...

Excuse the title, but I just couldn't resist.

Today's post will be short and sweet.  And it may offend a few people, but please know that I come from a place of kindness and wanting to help.  That said, I'm going to go ahead and declare:

It looks really sloppy when you wear flats with pants hemmed for heels.  Seriously.  It's even worse when the pants are flared. 

I completely understand that wearing heels all the time is not practical.  I don't do it either.  I also understand that not everyone is comfortable wearing slim cut pants (you should try it anyway - if they fit right, they're so flattering!), but wearing a flared or boot cut pant that drags the floor makes for a very strange body shape.  Your feet should not be one of the wider points of your silhouette, which is what happens when you stand in a puddle of fabric.

And don't get me started on frayed hems with holes in them... the horror!

That said, here are a few examples of how to mix flat shoes and trousers without resorting to a super skinny style.  Think cropped or cuffed styles, or simply hemming a pair of pants to keep them off the floor.

I hope I didn't upset anyone, but tough love is necessary sometimes.  If you need help finding the right style for you, shoot me and email and I'll be happy to assist!
