Spring Pants and Skirt Trends: Pro/Con

Forget the statement tops for a second, because it’s time to add some color and ruffles below the belt now! More is always more!

Colored Jeans

Pro: A comfy way dress up jeans a little, you could probably fool some people at work if jeans are usually considered too casual (above from Banana)

Con: I love standard denim because it goes with almost everything, but adding color narrows those options

Verdict: I’m thinking something in a mint

Embroidered Jeans

Pro: A fresh take on denim with a retro vibe (above from Nordstrom)

Con: Definitely a statement that might look dated in five minutes

Verdict: Hard pass

Tie Waist Pants or Shorts

Pro: Makes a shorts and a tee shirt look more of a thoughtful outfit since the shorts are more interesting (above from Loft)

Con: You have to be ok with drawing attention to your waist, and you might have to tuck in your shirt to make it work (or at least a half tuck)

Verdict: Not sold, but never say never

Accordion Pleat Midi Skirt

Pro: A breezy, feminine option that is comfortable and forgiving (above from Nordstrom)

Con: This is going to be the focal point of your outfit, so you have to plan everything else around it. It’s not like throwing on a pair of skinny jeans

Verdict: This skews a little too girly for me, but I won’t rule it out

Wrap/Ruffle Skirt

Pro: A nice flirty twist on the classic skirt silhouettes (above from Loft)

Con: Depending on the style, if you’re pear shaped this might throw proportions in the wrong direction for you

Verdict: I’ve seen some pencil skirt versions with a front diagonal ruffle that would be great with a very simple shirt for work
