9 to 5 Style- Colorful Pants

The days and months just keep rolling by! It’s already time for 9 to 5 Style again. This month Jennie chose colorful pants as our theme.

Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third  Monday of every month Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!

Summer is the perfect time to add some color to your work wear. You may be tempted to stick with colorful tops, but switch it up and wear colorful pants once in a while.

Last week I shared 3 Chic Ways to Wear a Bright Matching Suit. These pants are part of that suit. The best way to get more mileage out of your matching pieces is to wear them separately. I’ve been pondering how to style these pants by themselves so when Jennie chose this theme the challenge was eagerly accepted!

I chose to style these colorful pants with a grey lightweight short sleeve sweater and my gingham blazer. My initial thought was to go with a slightly darker grey blazer, but then I remembered how much I liked this blue with black and white, so I chose the black and white gingham blazer. The top half is still neutral so the pants can still have plenty of attention.

Black pumps would work with this outfit but I remembered my snakeskin toe flats and decide they would add a little more texture and interest to the outfit. If the releases in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are any indication, snakeskin is going to be super popular this fall. (Shop my picks from the sale here.)

Today and tomorrow are Amazon Prime Days. If you are a prime member, you can take advantage of tons of deals. I’m expecting they will have some of the Amazon brand fashion items on sale, like pieces from Lark and Ro, Daily Ritual and Amazon Essentials. I’ve purchased pieces from all of these and found them to be quality pieces. Refer back to last week’s post on how to shop this great sale!

Hope you have a great week!
