These pants (also worn here) make a big statement, and for this outfit I decided to skip a simple top and wear a shirt that's just as interesting as the pants. Quite a few of you expressed an appreciation of the shoulders on this shirt when I wore it on Halloween, so I decided to wear it again on a non-costumey day. And then, just because this outfit already had so much going on, I piled on the jewelry as well. (Because if you're going to go over the top, you might as well make it count, right?)
If you take outfit photos, it doesn't take too long to figure out which poses work best for which outfits. If I'm wearing a skirt I'll gladly face the camera head-on, but if I'm wearing pants I will almost always pose at an angle. I love my wide hips, but they look even wider in photos when I wear pants (especially wide-leg pants like these), and I don't have a problem trying to make myself look a bit slimmer in pictures. Do any of you have posing tricks that you use? What are they?
