A Little DC

Beanie: H&M, Jacket: vintage, Top: Bailey 44, Pants: Zara, Boots: Payless

Yes the infamous D.C. (dropped crotch) pants, as made popular in the blogging world by miss Lulu and in the mainstream by YSL etc.

I bought these pants a while ago but haven't had much motivation to wear them because I find leggings to be more flattering/warm. Recently though I've been wanting a change in silhouette (hence the previous mention of a black maxi skirt) and decided to pull out these pants as a sort of in between stage to hold me over until I can find the skirt.

I'd actually wear these more if they were in the right size and were tighter in the lower leg...Guess I'll just have to wait until H&M starts selling a kids' version.

A few ideas:
