I can’t believe I have had these pants hanging in my closet since the end of July! But it was too hot to wear them until now so I held off styling them because I knew I wanted to do a remix with them once the weather got a little chillier outside.
As someone who doesn’t have a corporate job or go into an office every day, I don’t often wear slacks or a dress pants, so what I really like about these Sloan pants by Banana Republic is, they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. The material is super stretchy and comfortable and I love how the waistband is really flattering. I cuffed mine up one fold since I wanted them to hit right at my ankles (will most likely get them tailored eventually) but if you need to wear them a little longer for work, the length is perfect for that.
This outfit is something I could potentially wear to a meeting in my industry, which is more on the creative side. Or I could see myself wearing this out for drinks if I wanted to look sharp and sophisticated without feeling stuffy. The problem I’ve always found with traditional work clothing is it tends to feel frumpy and conservative. I know that some people are required to wear full suits and dress pants and tops to work, but if you have to look super buttoned up, you can still have a little fun with your accessories at least! I like to incorporate color through my shoes, lipstick and jewelry. In this case, I opted for no necklaces or bracelets and instead let the shoes and red lip act as the focal points!
