currently coveting: printed crop pants

Have you seen the Old Navy commercial with Amy Poheler? I hope this goes without saying but please don't wear pixie pants and a cotton t-shirt to any interview for a corporate job you're hoping to land. Just don't. Amy was right about one thing though- those pants are seriously cute. And as temperatures slowly warm up and spring inches closer, they make for a perfect and figure flattering transition pant. 

Want to rock printed pants in the office? Pair darker prints with heels and something structured (preferably with a collar) on top to make the look office appropriate. Planning on wearing them on the weekend? Try pairing with a low wedge or cutout sandal and your favorite chambray to be dressed down but still polished. Have a little more to contain below the belt? I feel ya girl. Avoid big prints and lean towards darker colors. This pair from the Gap, while darker, will still totally work for spring. 

What do you think? I find cropped pants to be universally figure flattering so long as they are structured and not so tight they look like leggings. We all know how I feel about leggings as pants....

Happy hump day, amigas!

  1. I've been loving cropped pants lately! The J.Crew Winnie Pants are one of my favorites, though they aren't printed like these. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to wear printed pants, though I've seen some bright / colored pants that would be really cute for spring / summer!

  2. Ok so I thought I was the only one that thought she was dressed inappropriately for an interview at a LAW FIRM!! But the commercial was cute and made it's point!

  3. I need all of these crop pants in my closet! Thanks for sharing, and I love your blog!!
