I worked an event on Sunday and I wore silk pants. This is not a good idea. Silk pants, while I love them, are like linen. They wrinkle and stretch quickly. Not really good for making a good first impression. “Hi, hire me! I wear wrinkled pants and you can too!” Hmmm. Probably not my best choice. Luckily, I was sitting for most of the time, so my prospective clients didn’t always see my wrinkled, stretched out pants.
Let’s talk about the length of the pants. Most often when I am in my client’s homes I talk negatively about capris. Capris tend to be unflattering. If they are the cropped, slim Audrey Hepburn type of capris, they are great. If they are the flared type of capris, they cut you off and make you look shorter. I always tell my clients, if you are going to wear a capri or a cropped pant, pair them with a nude shoe so your leg looks a bit longer. I finally listened to my own advice.
