I am on a cinched-waist kick these days. And you know who does a cinched waist really well? Miss Olivia Palermo. She does a lot of fashion things well, but a defined waist is really one of her specialities. I love how these looks run the gamut from casual-and-edgy to classy-and-sophisticated.
To be totally honest, given a choice, I will always pick a dress (or skirt) over jeans. I think they are a lot more comfortable, and more flattering on a petite frame...especially when you define the waist. And, they makes your legs look longer because your waist is higher! In winter I love the look with black opaque tights (for warmth and general leg-slimmingness).
What do you guys think? Do you prefer pants or dresses? Do you cinch it?
