Over the past few years, my waist size has fluctuated quite a bit and some pants that I previously bought in a size up are now too loose. As a quick and temporary fix (in case I want to let the waist back out), I’ve been using this quick safety pin hack that a friend showed me. To see a video of this hack check out my Instagram Reels video.
For pants with a clasp hook and eye closure, you simply use a safety pin to create a new “eye” to hook the clasp onto. It’s super quick and easy, and works perfectly when I need to make the waist about an inch snugger! I wouldn’t do much more than that, otherwise the closure may start to look asymmetrical.
For this particular pair of A+F pants, I had sized up to be safe but the 25 was a little too loose on me, so I’d recommend getting your usual size. Of course a belt is the easiest solution for tightening around the waist, but for pants that don’t have belt loops this really comes in handy!
As an alternative shoe for colder weather, or if you just prefer to cover your ankles in the winter, I’d wear this outfit with a stretch shaft bootie like this Ann Taylor pair a shown below.
