Playing With Pants

After avoiding pants for years, I'm now exploring their possibilities -- and learning they can be feminine and fun. This outfit below started with the pants and I added pieces to complement them.

What do you think?





  1. You look fabulous in pants - you have awesome legs, Ally.

  2. Oh yes!
    I often feel transwoman understandably veer to the extreme feminine and draw attention to their newbie status.
    Ciswomen wear a variety of styles according to the occasion, and often wear pants which as you have found here can be very feminine.
    Having said that, you can absolutely pull off the high glamour as well!
    I really like this fun outfit with the dots and fringe. And your figure really suits it. Xo Jazzy Jack

    1. Thanks, JJ. You're right for that very reason.

  3. Love the way this look accents your legs - and the scarf is the perfect addition. xox


  4. I love it! It has a Minnie Mouse vibe, but in the best way possible. Minnie was always my favorite. I'm also picturing the shirt + pants plus a cool black jacket and boots, but that's my style!

  5. Cute! Love the color, too. I've gone the opposite way. I wear flannel bottoms all day because I work at home. And when I go places, I hate wearing pants. (I've successfully avoided jeans for a year!) I do like my stretchy purple corduroy skinny pants (they remind me of your lovely pair here) and a pair of stretchy black suiting with stripe. They do allow you all kinds of possibilities with tops (and cute tunics... But I alas have nothing so pretty as in your collection!)

  6. Embrace the pants and show off those shapely legs!

  7. Those pants sure do highlight your gorgeous legs Ali.

  8. I see you are only getting more and more confident!
    and the pants look good.

  9. I agree with this consensus Ally! Who else can wear red leggings and look that great! Love the whimsical dotted top with the fringe!
    I hope to see some floral leggings next time!;)

  10. <3 the pants paired with the polka dots! Great look (and you have amazing legs, btw!)

  11. Polka dots and pants - the perfect pairing. And now I'll pop away my 'p's!

  12. I think the top is gorgeous. Would love it myself. But I would never dare to wear just leggings with it. I would feel naked. I would wear skinny jeans with them.
    You paired it well though.

  13. Pants are my favorite to dress up! I love a good pair of black skinny jeans with ankle strap heels. Such a sleek look!

  14. You have the best legs. Period.

    *PS* I really mean that!

    *PSS* Super fun/cute/charming outfit!

  15. I'm glad you're rediscovering pants from the feminine side. They look great on you! I love the retro vibe of this look, especially the polkadots paired with red. And your SMILE in that second photo - can't take the cuteness!
