Summer doesn’t mean time off work or school for everyone. Some people have jobs that require a uniform other than shorts and a tank top. For any Fashionista who might need to dress business casual, a great pair of pants is a must.
There’s no doubt that every Fashionista needs a great pair of pants. Pants can be worn for interviews, jobs or a night on the town depending on how you style them. A pair of black pants always look professional and classy. A new trend I love is patterned pants. They show more personality than a plain pair. To me, fashion is about expressing who you are. For some, this might mean a crisp pair of black pants, but for others, a great pattern is more expressive. Patterned pants are just as appropriate for the work environment. When paired with different accessories and shoes, they look great for evenings as well.
I noticed this Fashionista because of her fabulous printed pants. The pattern wasn’t overpowering like some I have seen. They looked professional, yet super stylish. I loved the crop length because it’s the perfect summer length. She may have just finished work, but she looked ready for a night out with friends.
The rest of this Fashionista’s outfit kept the attention on her patterned pants. A simple, white sleeveless shirt adds to the summery yet professional feel. None of the accessories stood out alone. After looking at the accessories closer however, they were beautiful. They blended into the look so well that they weren’t completely noticeable until you looked closer. My personal favorite was the black and tan leather bag.
While you might spend days at work this summer, your wardrobe can still be fun. Pants are in, especially fun patterned pairs. They are perfect for days when you leave work and head straight out with friends. Whether you’re a working Fashionista or not, pants are your friend this summer.
