After the recent call: Ladies, Please Burn Your Black Pants, we thought we would show our support. “They’re boring and sad, and they make you look boring and sad, too,” says fashion writer Emma Rosenblum of the aforementioned trousers. We agree, the poly-blend black work pant is out dated and lacks personality, but that doesn’t mean all career-appropriate pants have to. Here are five great patterned pants you can wear to (most) jobs.
Ankle Pant by Podolls
Not only is Podolls the fashion dream of perhaps the sweetest couple, their clothes are always made with responsible fabrics and manufacturing—an idea that’s embedded in the DNA of the company. Made in the USA, these printed pants flaunt a bold graphic that will turn heads. Plus, their loose fitting silhouette is great for looking fashionable any time of month.
Printed Silk Pants by Carrie Parry
Carrie Parry garments are like a road map for sustainable style–and these pants are no exception. Made with 100% silk crepe , the beautiful pattern was custom screenprinted by artisans in India. All Carrie Parry garments are made in NYC and for each purchase a tree is planted in collaboration with Trees for the Future. These are the perfect printed pant to add a hint of personality to your office outfit.
Carrie Parry, $285
Royal Egg Vase Pant by Clover Canyon
When it comes to prints, Clover Canyon has mastered the craft. We love the floral, punk nature of these printed pants. Plus, Clover Canyon is “made in Los Angeles, and always will be.”
Clover Canyon, $268
Megan Tapered Silk Pant by Amour Vert
Made in California, Amour Vert’s name, meaning love for green, says it all. These animal print pants, made from silk, are comfortable and stylish. Fitted but still loose and casual, we love these fierce patterned pants.
Amour Vert, $214
Classic Trouser by SUNO
When I first set eyes on these trousers, I was in love. The modern fit is cut perfectly, and the plaid pattern is perfect for fall. As always, SUNO is all about quality, and these are made in NYCs Garment Center. These patterned pants are a great investment you’ll never get tired of wearing.
