We all have those mornings when nothing sounds worse than squeezing into your skinny jeans or tight pencil skirt.  Since leaving the house in your pjs will make you look a tad cray-cray, we thank the fashion gods for the popularity of the silk printed pant. Whether wide legged or tapered, these silky pants are available in a wide range of bold prints and rich hues, and are super comfortable to boot.

Pair these pants with a tee for a stress free weekend look, and get away with them at the office by wearing them with something more structured on top. Don’t be afraid to wear these with a silk blouse, just make sure to tuck it in and don’t pair a top that’s too voluminous with a wide legged pant. Another great way to dress up these pants are to wear it with your trusty blazer, which is a great way to add structure to any outfit, even a maxi dress.

If you’re on the petite side and are worried about these pants over-powering your small frame, pair them with a peplum top. If you don’t already have one of these, get one. They are amazingly flattering and surprisingly comfortable. Also if you wear heels with a wide legged pair of pants, your legs will seriously seem 10 times longer. Lastly, a crisp button-up and basic cardigan instantly elevates bold printed silk pants to office-wear appropriate.
