Dress pants are a staple in every person's wardrobe. They are the perfect foundation for a work look, but also can be dressed down for a casual dinner or even a wedding or baby shower. The key to having versatile dress pants is to find pairs that are unique.
Choose a Bold Color and/Or PRint
Go for a bold color like burgundy or rust for the fall. Not only should a great color be chosen, but also, play with prints. Clothing is an expression of who you are and prints only add to that. If you are bold try a leopard print pair. If you are more classic, then try a subtle plaid print. It's all about what speaks to you and where you are wearing them.
Cut is Key
Color and print is about what defines you and your look, however; the cut of the pants is what helps to enhance your shape. Add a few different pant cuts to your wardrobe from skinny styles to flares. Flare dress pants are a favorite of mine this season. I love the versatility of this style and how well it pairs with pointed toe heels. This combination instantly makes you look taller and leaner. Plus, it's a very sophisticated and polished look.
Putting the Look Together
The dress pants I'm wearing have become a staple in my fall wardrobe. I love the burgundy color and the slight pin stripe, along with the flare cut. These pants instantly make me feel confident and are a great piece to wear for many occasions I have coming up.
For work, I pair them with blouses and blazers, but I also love dressing them down with a cream sweater and oversized, wool coat. A pair of leopard print heels is unexpected, but adds a playful touch to the outfit. Playing with colors, textures, and prints really makes a look personalized and well thought out.
Add a few pairs of dress pants to your wardrobe and experiment by dressing them up for work and down for other events. Step outside the box and have fun with this wardrobe staple!
