Most people fear heights, spiders and even public speaking. I, on the other hand, fear pants. My fear began when I was about three years old and discovered the beauty of dresses and skirts; I fell in love with being a girly girl. Quite honestly, if I never had to wear pants again I would be perfectly happy. While walking to class last week, however, seeing this Fashionista’s outfit made me want to face my fears and invest in a bold pair of pants.
Statement pieces are essential and chances are you probably already own some without realizing it: statement jewelry, bags or shoes. But do you own a pair of statement pants? As demonstrated by this week's Fashionista, a bold pair of pants can really make your outfit stand out. She paired snakeskin skinny pants with combat boots, a leather jacket and an oversized scarf to achieve the ultimate street style look. As we’re slowly easing the way to spring, these pants are the perfect item to incorporate into your closet. For a similar pair of pants, try these cropped safari pants by Vince Camuto. If you’re looking for a spring inspired option, try Forever 21’s floral cigarette pants. Both are great statement making options that can be easily paired with the basics in everybody’s closets. Perfect for running out the door or throwing something together, when you have a pair of statement pants the rest of your outfit just falls together.
Unfortunately you can’t live your life without ever wearing pants. Well unless you’re Lady Gaga… but not everyone can get away with just wearing leather pants and fishnets. Follow the lead of this Fashionista and invest in some statement pants; you’ll stand out this season, and who wouldn’t want that?
