One of the reasons I love being a woman is that we have a lot of options when it comes to clothes. Have you ever noticed the difference in size between the women’s and men’s section at a store? The woman’s section takes up way more space. We have so many options when it comes to shoes, clothing, jewelry and intimates compared to men. Despite our never-ending options, we still find a way to get bored with our wardrobe.
I love my skirts and dresses, but lately I’ve been bored with them! This past weekend I met up with some of my peers for drinks and I walked out the door in pants. I couldn’t believe I wasn’t wearing a dress or skirt. Here are the top 5 Dress pants every woman needs! C’mon ladies, let’s not believe that the only way to look dressed up is with a skirt!
A Classic Black Dress Pant – Black is a color of comfort. It’s flawless because it can pair with anything. Don’t make life harder by refusing to buy a dressy black pant. It can be any type of pant you want. It can be slacks, trousers or skinny jeans as long as it feels and looks good! I got these black trousers from Dillards some time ago. The brand is Chelsea and Violet, but you can find black trousers just about anywhere.
A Pop of Color – You already know my favorite color is red. I saw these and fell in love with them for the color and also because they can easily be worn straight from work and to a night out. I also love that these pants come in more subtle and neutral colors if the red is too poppy. You can shop them here
A Funky Print – We’re used to seeing others wear solid pants with printed tops, so why not literally switch it up? I love the flare and florals these pair of pants have because it’s just as feminine as a maxi skirt. Because of the neutral colors, I think I would even wear this to work! Would you? Tell me why or why not in the comments! Shop these pants here
A Dressy Jogger – If you live in your sweats, you’ll face no problem going out somewhere nice in them too. I didn’t think I would like the idea of making joggers look dressed up, but lately I’ve been seeing some fancy looking joggers I wouldn’t mind wearing. I found a lot of these pants at Fashion Nova. These sequined ones caught my eye because I’ve never seen joggers look so fancy. If you like these, you can shop them here. Or, if you like the idea of dressy joggers, but want something more subtle, these might interest you instead.
70’s Flare – I am noticing a 70’s vibe in every other store that I have walked into. One of the statement fashion pieces of this time was the high waisted bell bottom pants and I really like the way they look when paired with a blouse and dress shoes. I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you all about a local store that sells a beautiful pair of these pants called The Southern Bunny. I think that they have some really nice clothing and I am really loving their Everywhere, That Is. pants. To shop these pants, click here
I hope these pant styles will help inspire you all to give pants a try the next time you are going out. I think a woman in dress pants is pretty badass and I know there’s a pair of dress pants waiting for every single woman out there. Never be afraid to try something new! It just may be your new thing!
Thank you for reading and stay stylish!
