Whether you are just tuning in to my blog and personal style or have been following along for a while, there is one thing you have probably quickly learned about me, I loved a good pair of (what I term) "fun pants". This meaning, any pants that deviate from you're average denim. I love jeans, don't get me wrong, but when I can find pants with a high-waist, elastic waist-band, and flattering leg-width, I am all in. And that's why I am hear to confess my love for these Marine Layer black crepe pants. Talk about versatile, I styled them to suit four different looks for all kinds of occasions and if I could, I would've styled them with 10 more looks! From casual to chic and everything in between, you need these go-to pants. Check out four ways I've styled these great pants below.
Coffee + Errands
Another everyday fashion love of mine, graphic tees, band tees in particular. So why not combine fun pants will cool tees?! I paired the black crepe pants with my favorite Jimi Hendrix t-shirt for a casual look while out to coffee and running errands all day.
Even with an over-sized fitting tee, you can make the look flattering to your shape by tucking it in to these pants. They're the perfect high-rise to pull off this look for coffee shops and errand- filled days galore!
One of the best parts of this outfit is the ability to just mix up the top to take it from one look to the next. For my two day-time looks I kept the same printed loafers, gold hoops, Cat-eye sunglasses, and a saddlebag purse! That's what makes these pants such a staple, you can instantly change the mood of your outfit with the swap of a top! What makes them the best during say-time is that even though I sat and stood in them throughout the day, creases were minimal (blessed) and the waistline never stretched, meaning no annoying adjustments all day! They're light-weight and low maintenance; perfect for moving about town on a busy day.
Lunch or Brunch Date
Since these pants can make you instantly chic (even, me) all it takes is a simple change to accomplish a perfect look for a lunch date or day of perusing downtown. It's hard to find the perfect in-between from just a t-shirt and jeans to a skirt and blouse. This look is for all those style limbo moments when your caught between too casual and too dressed-up!
This striped scoop tee from Madewell is another piece I picked up in my recent early-fall shopping haul and it has been perfect for high-waisted bottoms! I loved having striped tees as a great go-to, but I love how this one has fun colors and has a great fit that's not too long which makes it perfect for a front tuck to pants like these.
I wore this look when Jack and I were spending the day around town! We wanted to stop for a little mid-afternoon snack and were stuck trying to find a place. We ended up at Wine + Market and had a perfect time snacking on a fresh-made charcuterie tray and drinking beer while we talked and waited out the afternoon rain. The perfect lunch date with the perfect person in some darn perfect pants.
A Night Out
Who doesn't love an all black outfit?! It's easy to dress these pants up by just throwing on this short black camisole with them and some mules for a trendy night-out 'fit! I got my top in Italy this spring from H&M and I've loved how easy it is to throw on when you can't think of anything else to wear out (AND now its on sale)
One of my favorite things about this look is that it looks like a matching set, or even a jumpsuit! Its so perfect for a night out, its easy and light and is multi-seasonal if you throw on a leather or denim jacket with it! I switched the accessories out besides the purse, for a dressier feel. All of the gold accessories pop perfectly against the all black look, with a lariat necklace (feat. also in this post) and these Madewell gold hoop statement earrings you've got a great night-out look with just a few easy switches from the day time look.
Dinner + A Movie
Outfit number four in these pants, is all about a laid back night out. A light-weight cropped sweater like this one is perfect to pair with theses pants for a cute and comfy look while out for the evening! I picked up this sweater from a local boutique called Serendipity859 and I think its perfect for transitioning seasons. I loved playing up the sheerness of the sweater by just wearing a barrette underneath to add some edge.
Jack and I just went to a local french restaurant, walked around, and watched a movie at home for our crazy wild date night! This outfit was perfect though and my mules (my favorite heel option) were even perfect on our walk! This look made me feel le chic at the french restaurant, but mostly because of my hair scarf adding the perfect extra chic touch. A nice dinner doesn't always have to require a dress or skirt, these pants are the perfect trendy ( & comfy) alternative!
I think the point that these pants are super awesome and versatile has definitely been made.
