“One year ago, I released my song TRANSFORM and created this music video. I wrote this song during a highly transformative time in my life, when I was delayering all my personal, social, and religious conditioning – finding compassion and empathy for ALL parts of me, not just the ‘good’ parts. I was about to release this video, when the most tragic loss of my life abruptly occurred. Time passed, and I felt I had missed my window to release this video,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Personally, this past year has been the most challenging period of my life. Collectively, we are experiencing a global pandemic, extreme injustice, polarization, environmental devastation, and an economic downturn that has contributed to increasing anxiety, depression and fear amongst us,” Julianne added.

“This year has not been easy for anyone and this song rings even more true today than a year ago when I wrote it.”

My hope in releasing this video now, is that you can see that through the courage and resilience that we innately have within us, we can choose how we live in the world… through the “FEAR of change” or the “JOY of Transformation”. I’m excited to share this video with all of you, a year later, to hopefully bring some light, color, and FUN to the world right now. This is a Transformative time for all of us. Let me know how this makes you feel :)⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Directed by: @derekhough⁣ ⁣ Edited by: @hunter.so⁣ ⁣ Choreography by: @tessandrachavez⁣ ⁣ Choreographer’s Assistants:⁣ @stephmincone⁣ @ashlynnmalia ⁣ ⁣ Danced by:⁣ @minitiste⁣ @florisbosveld⁣ @elyssacueto⁣ @denzel_chisolm⁣ @jalen_forward⁣ @charlizeglass⁣ @paulinemata⁣ @stephmincone⁣ @brodypizza⁣ @ryanlramirez

“My hope in releasing this video now, is that you can see that through the courage and resilience that we innately have within us, we can choose how we live in the world… through the ‘FEAR of change’ or the ‘JOY of Transformation,’” she said.

The 32-year-old dancer, singer, and actress concluded the letter, “I’m excited to share this video with all of you, a year later, to hopefully bring some light, color, and FUN to the world right now. This is a Transformative time for all of us. Let me know how this makes you feel.”

Normally, slouchy pants that look more like sweatpants would make us cringe. The just-rolled-out-of-bed-in-my-sweatpants look just doesn’t fit everyone. But occasionally, the frumpy vibe of the slouchy pants manages to impress us.

A case in point is Julianne Hough’s outfit:

In January 2014, the then 25-year-old singer and actress went out for lunch wearing a slouchy, almost harem-like, pair of pants from Helmut Lang with an asymmetrical crotch.

But rather than repel us, her outfit made us think she really has a keen eye for fashion. She made it look stylish and cool in three steps!

Step 1: Fitted Sweater

She wore a fitted sweater to balance out the slouchiness of the pants. A baggy top plus a baggy pair of pants can easily equate to an ugly frumpy style.

That’s a definite no-no. But to make it work, chuck the baggy top and replace it with something more fitted for a more figure-flattering silhouette.

Step 2: Animal Print Shoes

She wore a pair of animal-printed flats. Fuss-free flats are the key to giving the pants a cool vibe. The animalistic print also breaks off the monotony of the solid-colored pieces in the outfit.

Step 3: Mirrored Sunglasses

She punctuated the look with a pair of mirrored sunglasses. We reckon any large-framed pair of sunnies will work, but the mirrored ones seem to amp up the style meter of this look.

How easy was that? Anyone can try the singer’s look and pull it off quite stupendously. In fact, we insist you copy this look the next time you go out and have a nice lunch out with your friends. Below are some coordinates to get you started.
