9-5 Style: 2 Ways to Style Patterned Pants

Monday, August 1, 2016
IT FEELS GOOD TO POST MORE OUTFITS. If you keep up with my social media (aka Twitter and Instagram), you'd know that I started to work full-time back in May. Even though I have a bunch of outfits planned, it's hard to take photos of them when 1) I don't have a personal photographer at my beck and call and 2) only relying on the weekend for photos. Anyways, I was approached by Margaret M Canada to feature a pair of their slimming pants on my blog and I thought it was perfect to wear to work and still be stylish. So instead of showing a lookbook of workwear outfits (which I will eventually), I thought I'd show how to style one pair of pants 2 different ways for the office: 1) Business Formal and Business Casual
Outfit 1: Business Formal

  • Summer has been insanely hot and humid in Toronto so instead of a full length blazer, I opt for a sleeveless one literally ALL the time at work. I wanted to pair the pants with a dark shade of blue so I wore an old embellished halter top from Express that went perfectly. Since I'm in an office and I commute to work, I always wear flats or loafers but I thought these pair from ASOS was too adorable and even though there's sparkles at the back, it's still youthful for someone in their early 20s. The overall ensemble is still workwear appropriate yet stylish.

  • Top - Express
  • Pants - Margaret M
  • Shoes - ASOS

  • Outfit 2: Business Casual

  • This white lace top has been my go-to top - I wear it ALL the time and I always like to change it up every time I do. When I took photos, I didn't put anything kind of camisole underneath since it was insanely hot but if you're wearing it to work, you definitely would want to because of the revealing back. I like how this look doesn't even feel like it's specifically for work but dressy enough that it could be worn in a workplace setting.

  • Top - Zara
  • Pants - Margaret M
  • Shoes - ASOS

  • Hope you enjoyed today's post and big thanks to Margaret M for sending me these pants :)
