On most days, I wear dresses to work, but we all have those days when we wake up and think, “Today is 100% a pants day.” When that happens, I have a handy collection of statement pants to choose from: bold colors, vivid textures, and fun prints.
Statement pants are one of my favorite ways to add a little flair to an otherwise monotone look. I have worn this outfit to work with studded flats, as well. I love how soft and comfortable the J.Crew Easy Pant in Velvet is, and the soft guava color is such a lovely hue (and on sale for under $30)! The pants also come in black and navy, if you’re looking for the texture without so much color.
Since the camera typically only frames the top half of my body when I’m on-air, I can keep the turtleneck and coat neutral while having some more freedom with my pant choice. It’s the ultimate “professional on top, party on the bottom” combination.
