Pattern Play

I have one of my best friend's weddings this coming weekend (Caroline - can't wait!!) and need a fun pair of pants for some of the pre-wedding festivities. I often find myself attending events where the dress code calls for casual, but dressier than a sweater and jeans (also mine all have holes in them- on the hunt for a new pair sans holes). 

This is where patterned pants come into play. Casual enough for the office but fun enough for after work drinks or lunch with your friends on the weekend. I was majorly committed to the J-Crew Minnie pant for years which was a similar cut (stick with a tailored ankle length cut) and came in fun colors, but they never really took it to the next level with different patterns and textures. 

Tory Burch does a lot with patterned pants (as you can see above) another great place to look (if you don't want to make too serious of an investment) is Old Navy (the above leopard pair), Banana Republic, and randomly Tommy Hilfiger (that plaid pair is calling my name). Also try Anthro, Ann Taylor, or Nordstrom.

Make sure to keep your top neutral and basic (black is always a good idea) and pair with heels or a classic flat.
