How I Wore It – Skinny Pants

Last week I introduced you to 3 trends that stay constant and how I wore the shift dress, today it’s SKINNY PANTS!!!  Now, I’m not a fan of skinny pants so I’m going to call them ankle pants.  Which to me are much more flattering and more true to the trend that is constant year to year.   So how do I wear the trend?  With mark.’s Blues Cruise pants ($32)!!!  Perfect slim leg, ankle hem and NAUTICAL influence in navy with bronze detail buttons!

My obsession with nautical looks made these pants super easy to style and wear.  I paired them with a navy and white polka dotted cotton corset and a navy and white stripped open cardi that I had in my closet.  Then, of course, my super large rope necklace in navy and my newest addition to my jewelry obsession the mark. Dramatic Effect Bracelet ($24)!  It’s big, navy and delicate rhinestone accents… its perfect!!!  PLUS it matches the Deco Drama Studs ($16) I’m wearing that you can’t see.  Of course what’s a look these days with out my In A Flash Ring ($16).  The Dramatic Effect Bracelet, Deco Drama Studs and In A Flash Ring are all available at my eboutique:  http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

Up close and personal you can see the detailing of the bronze buttons that take these ankle pants to the next level.  I’ve been wearing them with my Hot To Handle Bag and so many various tops.  These are one pair of pants that will get good use in your closet.  Pretty true to size but if you have thick legs you might want to order a size up but the waist is very forgiving and the amount of stretch in the pants will make any girl happy.

Where It Your Way

There are a few trends that are always in style, and this spring mark. took 3 of them and asked how do you make them your own?  These 3 trends are the sheath dress, safari chic and skinny pants.  I was fully onboard for this fun task of making these trends my own. First, I needed inspiration.  And where do you go for inspiration?  Pinterest!!!

I created a board for just the task:  http://pinterest.com/ach167/how-we-wore-it/
