I collect these pants for a few reasons. Obviously, the price is fantastic. Reason #2 -- they fit me well and bonus points for not stretching out like other inexpensive cotton pants. Third, they are very comfortable. And four, they are so easy to dress-up or down for running errands, going to work or a night out.
H&M Print Pants + Red Booties by CoutureCheapskate1
This outfit reminds me of something Jessica Alba wore earlier this year where I became obsessed with her printed denim and red booties. Since then, red booties have always held a place in my heart. This pair from Aldo is a bargain at $27.50 and adds instant style to any basic outfit. I live for t-shirts with cute pants; so easy and comfortable. A scarf is the perfect transition accessory especially when you don't feel like wearing major jewels on a day off. Don't be afraid to mix prints.
H&M Print Pants At Work by CoutureCheapskate1
One of my go-to work uniforms includes this equation: printed pant + white blouse + black blazer. It's so easy and works every time. When wearing wild pants to work I try to keep everything else simple and classic i.e. basic black pumps and classic crossbody bag. My only wild moment would be a red statement necklace for some extra color and interest. One word of caution with this style pant in a professional environment...pick a longer blouse or jacket to cover the bum.
H&M Print Pants At Play by CoutureCheapskate1
Last but not least, these printed pants are the perfect foundation for a night on the town. My favorite outfits are ones that mix casual elements (t-shirt) with dressier (blazer) for a chic, not overly done-up look. In this case, we used the tee and earrings from outfit #1 and the blazer and pumps from outfit #2. I added a new necklace, purse and ring because I have been loving these pieces for sometime and think they deserve their moment. (This ring is a $20 version of a $300 Saint Laurent ring.) Besides being super stylish, comfort is key, and comfortable you shall be in this outfit.
These pants are my favorite kind of CC find. For $13, you can create 3 different outfits with basics most likely already in your closet. Add one or two fun accessories for a little something extra or keep it neutral and let the pants be the star. Either way, with these printed pants, you have many stylish options for minimum investment.
CCTip: H&M carries this style pant in basic colors as well.
