There’s no way around it; a wardrobe just isn’t complete without a pair of fancy pants. Oh, what are fancy pants you ask? Well, unlike the countless pairs of dull black, gray, and navy blue bottoms that inevitably consume the typical work wardrobe, fancy pants are vibrant, bold, brash, and the perfect solution for a lack luster work wardrobe.
Whether its lightening the mood or forcing you to exert the confidence you unknowingly have, fancy pants act as the smiley face of clothing – they’re fun, quirky, and you can’t help but smile back when you see them.
Case in point: J.Crew’s diamond stripe jacquard print pants. In the classic J.Crew figure-flattering cropped style, this pant – as the name implies – is a print pant with rows of contrasting diamond shapes. With a strong retro vibe, bright colors and geometric design this pant easily qualifies as a certified fancy pant.
Pants with this much personality deserve to not be upstaged. Therefore, when looking for items to pair with these print pants for the office, stick to more neutral colored pieces in classic silhouettes. A crisp white button up shirt with a structured blazer is always a good option. J.Crew also offers quite a few pieces that would look nice with the pants such as the grey loose knit sweater and nude heels shown in the photo.
The best part about fancy pants? They can easily transition from the office to after-hour drinks, weekend garden parties and more. Just pop on a pair of strappy sandals, a piece of funky jewelry and a bright tank and you’re good to go from office chic to night on the town.
