New York Street Beat: Paper Bag or Plastic?


It’s not exactly the newest trend, but when we spotted Malachy’s take on the paper bag waist our style radar went off the charts. The publicist’s harem pants are from H&M and we love how she paired them with a simple black tee – there’s a lot of fabric around the middle with this style, so it’s best suited to sleek, tucked in tops as shown. Cinched with a wide bow tie, it beautifully defines for a flattering midriff. If you are tall or have a long torso, then this silhouette is a definite Must Have for you. If you’re more petite, don’t fret – try a skirt or shorter length pants for the same effortlessly chic effect.

This is a great look. Something about it reminds me of "Newsies"...trousers, papers, I don't know!

I love this trend! And thanks for pointing out my mistake :) I was wearing boots when I wrote the post (before taking the photos) and then changed my shoes. I'm fairly absent-minded!

I thought those pants could never work until I saw Fashion Is Poison in them. Fantastic trend!
