Fashion Jobs – 5 Work Pants for Summer

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaIn a perfect world we would all be able to wear our favourite pair of cut-offs to the office during summer. You know, that pair that hugs you in all the right places and shows off your legs. But unfortunately, shorts aren’t always the preferred bottom in some work environments. This summer, rather than only feeling as if you can only wear skirts and dresses, we wanted to share a few styles of dress pants that are warm weather approved.

We’ve rounded up our favourite airy silhouettes and fun, colourful options that will take you just about anywhere from BBQ work parties, late-night deadlines and the usual case of running errands. We’ve selected pants that feature lighter fabrics, a variety of price points and included chic ways to style these pant for summer.

So, take charge and beat the heat this summer with these five styles of work pants that you need in your life ASAP.

1.Bold Print

The Bright Crop:

These stunning silk-twill pants will help keep you feeling cool and ready to take on anything that comes your way. They are meant to fit high on the waist, which helps to make your waist appear slimmer.

Style Tip: Style with your favourite white or pastel coloured short sleeved button-up and add a fabulous heeled sandal to make the body appear taller and slimmer.

2.Seamless Culottes

The Seamless Culottes

Viscose material showcases simplicity but also can be elevated when paired with the perfect shoe and blouse. This drapey but sensible culottes style will provide comfort to the fullest, especially on those days when you have back-to-back meetings. These flowy beauties will have you feeling as if you’re hanging beach side feeling every breeze.

Style Tip: These culottes look best when paired with an off the shoulder top, preferably in sky blue or sun kissed orange. If you want ultimate comfortability, pair with a loafer with a one-inch heel.

3. Cropped

The Cropped Wide-Leg

This tapered wide-leg has got what it takes to bring on the summer heat — all while looking polished and sleek. Its slight cropped feature makes it breezy enough to play with flats, sneakers or a block heel. The added self-adjusted belt makes it more appealing for the eyes and the figure!

Style Tip: We recommend styling with statement coloured tops in royal blue or dark green. A simple coloured t-shirt would also look great, just pair with a playful necklace or a printed neck scarf for a chic look.

4. Cropped Trouser

The Cropped Trouser

There’s no better way to stand out of the crowd than with a pair of fuchsia trousers. These chic beauties are not only a steal, but they are made with a breathable fabric so you can stay cool without sacrificing the look of a great trouser.

Style Tip: We recommend pairing these beauties with either a black or white short-sleeved blouse and a pair of black heeled mules.

5. Cuffed khaki pant

Cuffed Khaki

Nothing reminds us of summer more than a pair of khaki pants. But thankfully we’re not picturing the extremely fitted style we used to wear during middle school. Now, we’re all about the high-waisted, cropped bell-bottom style that is perfect for those warm summer days.

Style Tip: Wear with a structured white button up and a pair of white or tan slides or mules for an effortlessly chic look.

Untamed and irresistible, this cool weather garden is pure style temptation and we are wearing it everywhere.
