HOW TO WEAR IT: PRINTED SILK PANTS TO THE OFFICE

Printedpants2Printedpants3

 

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.
