How to Add Personality to Your Work Wardrobe with Colored Pants

February 1, 2019

These pink pants are an all time favorite of mine!! You first saw them on the blog last summer here. At that time I styled them with a one shoulder top to show you how they would work for an after work event. I’ve shared them on my Insatgram stories styled for work in various ways since then, and today I wanted to share a different idea with you. Winter work looks can be so difficult and BORING. Lets talk about how to add personality to your work wardrobe with colored pants. Your winter work outfit woes are solved.

How to Add Personality to Your Work Wardrobe with Colored Pants

No more standing at the closet wondering what to wear to work in the winter. Forget all black. Buy a long pant in a fun color, add a long sleeve top or sweater, and boots. Ta-da! You have the perfect winter appropriate yet fun work look. I styled this look with heels for this shoot. Then the day I actually wore it was even cooler, so I wore boots. You can easily layer a coat and super warm socks underneath as well. What I love about colored pants is that you can wear them in the summer as well with a short sleeve, light weight blouse. They are a great investment. A note about these photos: the lighting was super strange, so I really had trouble editing them. The pinks look a little different in this set compared to last.

Where to Shop for Work Pants

In my opinion, the best places to shop for work pants are Banana Republic, LOFT, and Ann Taylor. This exact pair is from Banana Republic, and I am thrilled to say they currently have an almost exact version for sale here! Yay! I am wearing the tall version for my height in order to be able to wear it with heels. They also have a gorgeous lilac available. How pretty would it be paired with a lilac sweater for a monochrome winter look?

    Nicely worn. Sometimes we forget that we can add color via a great pair of trousers.
    In my case I had totally deleted this option years ago when I got rid of my bright blue pants and never replaced them.

    I love your collection of bright-colored pants Amy Ann. Love the trouser style of the red and hot pink ones. Beautiful blouses each time too. I too wear some bright pants for Winter. Also, I shop at those same stores for work pants. Express, too.

    I miss you on the blog, so welcome by. =)
