Loving Your Impulse Buy: The Patterned Pants

We’ve all been through the ups and downs of impulse buys. At first it feels exciting and risky, but three months later, that little item is now more of an outcast than a star in your closet.

I've devoted this week's posts to exploring the ways you can use your impulse buys to feel a little daring, a lot confident, and definitively stylish.

The Challenge:

- Window shopping turns into an impulse buy. Suddenly you've got: THE PATTERNED PANT

- You think it works with nothing you own.

- There’s hope: You can try something more out-of-the-box then your average denim. These pants will do the trick. The wild prints and patterns are an instant mood elevator and bring an element of fun to your style.

The Solution:

Finding the perfect compliment. Complete the outfit with…

                     

If the pants are fitted:

     Silk Blouse           

     Statement Earrings 

     Cocktail Ring       

      Bootie

 

If the pants are flowy:

Tank Top

Bangles

Bib Necklace

Wedges
