Fashion Friday: Fancypants!

A trend I’ve been seeing and loving this season (and especially for the upcoming holiday) is printed cropped formal trousers in metallics, colors, plaids and florals.  I love the look when paired with something slightly more casual like a knit sweater or button down white shirt.  It took me a white to try them on (J.Crew has a ton of options) and once I did I thought they were so fun!

I wore J.Crew’s emerald green fancypants on stage at O You! and lots of ladies asked me where they were from- a good sign you’re wearing something great! :)

Some to consider in all price points!

    Look at you Erin, getting your Oprah on! I haven’t been brave enough to try the printed pants yet but they look fabulous and fun.

    BTW, who is the stunning African American woman in the picture with you?

    Just dug through my holiday JCrew catalog and I love the styling of their cropped silk holiday pant, especially the ruby silk pintuck pants (gasp!!). But I am stuck on how I would wear them when it is mid-thirties out at night- my poor ankles :( Is that a concern or can you brave it from the car to the party/restaurant in the name of fashion?

    Piperlime just sent me an email titled Fancy Pants must have Holiday denim. I like the Hannah Slim Crop Jeans by Siwy (maybe cause I’m re-doing my DR navy and gold :)

  9. Colorful pants are so fun. I think my favorite this season were the ones in the Prada collection!

  10. I have a brocade/metallic pair from topshop with zippers at the ankles that I LOVE. Such a fun trend.

    I love them too, but, really how often can you wear these until you become “that girl who wears the fancy pants?”

    The pair you wore on stage looks great and I love all your other picks. No. 5 might be my favorite, but the No.8 ones are pretty awesome with their tartan plaid!
