Probably one of my favorite things to wear to work is skinny work pants. I own more pairs than anything other work item. Oddly, I only own black ones though. I definitely need some with a little color! I love skinny pants in general whether it be slacks or jeans. I wanted to share a few of my personal tips on how to wear skinny work pants to the office.
For starters, you need a fabulous top. I typically opt for something longer, similar to a tunic and with a bit over-sized flowy sizing to it. It’s a similar approach to how I wear my skinny denim too. Another option is a tucked in blouse. I look for the types of blouses I would normally pair with a pencil skirt. I like something not too fitted that can be ever so slightly untucked to give a little juxtaposition to the skinny pant. I love the red and white print on this top. It also comes in the prettiest blue too! I actually wore this top to a 4th of July party with skinny jeans, so it works for office and weekends.
Second, the shoe! I typically look for a pointy toe or peep toe shoe. I think a pointed toe heel helps dress the overall look a bit. In summer months, I lean more towards the peep toe heel, show off my summer pedi. Another great shoe option is a cute flat shoe. I have often paired mine with these flats after a hard leg day at the gym. Something about flats and skinny pants always reminds me of Audrey Hepburn and her effortless sophisticted style.
The last tip is all about the fit. For skinny jeans, I like them pretty fitted and semi-tight. For work pants, you definitely want something a little more loose fitting. My rule if it’s tight enough to see your panty line then it’s too tight. You need to find that just right fit, because too loose and your pants will look saggy in the bottom. I remember hearing someone say once, you aren’t trying to get a date, you are going to work. It’s silly, but a great thought when trying on skinny work pants.
