working girl wednesday :: printed pants

Happy Wednesday! Today we're focusing on a fun trend that just happens to be work-appropriate :: printed pants. I love adding a little something extra to an outfit, and printed pants are perfect for your more solid tops and subtle accessories. Some of my favorites are these ikat pants, from LOFT ::

 Always wear wedges or heels with a wide-leg pant. This elongates your legs. Stay away from flats!

 Always tuck your top into wider pants like this. It adds an accentuated waistline rather than looking wide, all the way from top to bottom. I added one of my go-to Kate Spade necklaces {past season} with a black pendant to pull the darker color in up top.
