Wear your underpants, the funky way

Many of the fashionable (such as we,) are desperate for spring to come so we can start wearing pretty skirts and dresses again. But what do you do if you really want to wear one now? Admittedly, I have seen people in the streets wearing mini skirts with Uggs, but REAL fashionables never dress out of season, (ie. We are telling you once and for all that mini skirts are for summer, not winter.) Here's a funky and fashion-foward way of dressing in season and not look ridiculous in skirts, (not to mention your body will love the extra heat insulation.)

I am inspired by the way Mary Kate Olsen wears thin black pants underneath her skirts. It makes her look more bohemian and just gives her outfit that extra touch. But be warned: don't wear pants that are too thick-looking, or those that are too long. You will just end up looking bulky.

Here's another excellent example of Mary Kate's excellent outfits, (remember that she just got listed as the 9th best dresser by Glamour magazine and she is only 18yrs old.) Matching the black underpants with a pair of bright colored pants emphasises on the multi-layers.

The black underpants still look great and trendy even when matched with such a casual outfit. And it definately keeps the legs warm. Also notice that the underpants are never long enough to touch the boots. In order to make them look funky, you must still show a teensy bit of skin. But if you going for a more girly and ballet look, you can let the underpants be long enough to cover your whole legs.

Am personally really much inspired by this article, because I do own black pants like those for insulation in the winter, and had never thought to wear it this way! Will definetely try that out some time, esp since I haven't worn a skirt since I came back to this awfully cold winter.

I must disagree here. I've always thought that Mary Kate dresses like a crazy homeless person. But I am generally a conservative dresser, so take that with a grain of salt.

Hey Cranky Biscuit, Haha, I lot of people think MK dresses like a crazy homeless person, but I think she's got excellent mix & matching skills, esp with layers and accessories. It really depends on personal preference. I tried dressing looser clothing like MK does, and I found it seriously comfortable, so I do that quite often now.

what is wrong with you people? you call yourself a fashion blogger and you don't know that those are not "really thin black pants" for chrissakes they're called LEGGINGS. just check any magazine on stands now and you will find these being referred to by their actual name. so there you go. mystery solved! wow.

Uuugggghh!!!.. god this typical homeless/peasant/trash look drives me crazy! I HATE IT! .. its not even CHIC, and i must say .. the shot of marykate near the garbage bags puts her in the perfect place. really matches her outfit. I think she wears the whole cabinet so she wont look like a skeleton.
