You Might not notice at first glance, but the button on my
jeans is slightly off center.No, I
didn’t buy them in the “deformed” clothing clearance section.It’s actually because of a little trick I do
with most of my pants.

Because of my body shape/proportions, bottoms always seem to
fit me through the thigh and be too big in the waist.This results inA LOT of pant hiking during my day.So, I came up with the idea to add an elastic
band to one of the belt loops on my pants and attaching the other end of the
loop to the button in order to tighten up the waist a little bit. 

I tell you, it makes the world of difference.Of course I could just have my pants altered
to fit me properly but that would mean having ALL my pants altered and I just
don’t want to put the money into it whenI can just do this cheap and easy trick.Try it! It will turn some of the most annoying pants into your favorite,
most comfortable pants!

P.S if this doesn’t make sense and you are interested in the
concept, let me know below and I will put together a post in picture format to

XO, Andrea

    You look so cute as always, and that's such a great idea! But usually my problem is a good fit up top but then my skinnies eventually get baggy around the knees. Hate when that happens! xohttp://dreamingenfrancais.blogspot.com

    A photo tutorial would be fabulous! I have the same issue with jeans and pants, so this would be a welcome change to high priced tailoring!BrittThe Secondhand Magpie
