Tie waist pants, also knows as paper bag pants have been trendy since last year. If your unfamiliar with them, these pants are sort of loose fitting at the waist with a scrunchy detail. They can be styled as is or with a belt. As usual I was all over this trend, but there was one big problem, petite sizing seemed unrealistic. I couldn’t find a pair of tie waist pants that actually fit my size and frame. They were all too baggy, too long. Usually I would of gone to my tailor and to get them hem, but when it too loose everywhere… I’ll basically be changing everything about them. And not only would it defeats the purpose, but will end up costing more than the pants itself. See where I am going with this?
I had to love these tie wast pants from afar. You know when you see another girl rocking an item you love, but can’t or won’t wear it and your like “rock it for the both of us!” That was me until this I found this pair! These tie wast pants are ankle style which means us petite girls can wear them without going to your tailor. The best part is the color… it was prefect for me! I ordered these online, feeling a little hesitate and crossing my fingers it will workout. They run a little big, so I’ll suggest sizing down. Now that I finally found my true match with tie waist pants, here are my petite tips
Sometimes Basics are More than Basic
Yes babes! Keep it real basic. This includes jewelry. I went for this beautiful monogram necklace I just love! Its just enough to make a statement without being too much. There’s a lot going on already with this style of pants, we don’t need to add more.
Avoid Busy Prints or Overload Colors
You know I am all about prints and colors, you should see my closet! But there are times when we should keep it really minimal!
Always Belt It
This is a no brainer! Since tie waist pants tend to be looser around the waist, you always want to belt it. This helps bring the entire look more together. I went with a tie belt on my side. I don’t know about you, but if I tie it in the middle I will feel a little weird, as if I’m 7 years old #maybeitsjustme
There are some styles that can make it or break it, depending on your shoe choice. With some styles, like this one, I always suggest adding some height. Even with you go with a 1in heel, it can make such a difference!
Finish Your Look With a Jacket
Jackets are always a great layering piece, but it also helps your figure. Jackets insinuate your curves!

Do you like tie waist pants? Do you have any struggles styling them?
What are your plans for the weekend? I have a work event tonight, which I am really excited about! We are having a brow and braid bar at the shop. If you’ve been following Mom with Style for a while you know two things, I am very serious about my brows! There is no way I am leaving my house without filling them in, am I the only one with this problem? And two, I suck at doing my hair. I always wish I could do all those cool braids you see in Pinterest, hopefully I can learn a thing or two tonight. After my event, we are heading to my mother in law to spend easter with her. The kids will have fun spending time with their cousins. Hope you all have a great weekend and easter,
