As you may have already noticed I have slowly been trying to incorporate more color into my wardrobe. A colored bandana here & a bright bag there. This time though I took not one, but two steps out of my comfort zone and paired a very bright yellow top with an already busy pair of pants.
These printed pants from Banana Republic have really grown on me. The print and silk-like feel remind me of my late aunt who was always dressed to the nines in silk pants, shirts & neckerchiefs. I swear I can almost hear her say how much she loves them!
Besides that thought, I love the fit! These are the Avery-Fit Crop, they are straight through the hip and thigh, which makes them super comfy. Kinda like the boyfriend Jeans little sister. Although the print can seem overwhelmingly busy at first sight, I find it to be very versatile. You saw me wearing them with a black tee here, which I loved, but I have also worn them off-duty with a white tee & sneakers. Who would’ve thought right? I think it’s just a matter of playing with different pieces and seeing what works for you. After all isn’t that the fun part of fashion?
These are for sure the pants to get this summer, and don’t even get me started on all the outfit possibilities for them once fall arrives! I’m talking a nice neutral colored sweater, a black leather jacket for some added edge, or even a navy trench…uh, yes please! Oh, and if you want to get your hands on these, I would recommend you size down. I feel like they run a little big, unless you like a more relaxed fit.
