It’s starting to heat up to the 70’s and 80’s outside! This means it is time to start wearing cooler clothing. I love the high waist, bow tie pant trend which is taking over the streets. Some call these pants “paper bag” pants, or “paper bag waist” pants. Call them what you will, they offer a high waist with a tie. The look is very mid-’90’s.
This trend takes me back in time. I remember wearing this pant style in college. Back then, we wore them with a body suit; because body suits were the hottest shirt style to wear back then. Looking back, I am not quite sure why I thought it was OK to walk around in a bodysuit with wide leg pants that tied at the waist. Although everything was covered, the bodysuits were very tight! Not a good look.
I prefer the trend this time around. Wearing high waist, bow tie pants in 2018 is a much more proportioned look; and appropriate look! High waist bow tie pants are being paired with loose tee’s or tops for summer 2018, so the whole look is more appropriate, and modest. Three cheers for that!
This outfit is really comfortable, and keeps me cool in warmer weather. I love that the pants and top together cost under $100. I hate spending a lot of money on clothing I wear in hot weather, so these prices are perfect! I recently paired this outfit with my new summer tote bag (stay tuned for review next week), and my favorite silver mules. These pants also look fabulous with espadrilles and a straw bag for a more casual, beach-side look.
